  • Dixon is the hidden jewel in the city school system. The teachers are amazing and the principal, Ms. Barker, is wonderful. Under her leadership Dixon has achieved great things. I'm proud my child attends Dixon--we would never go anywhere else. If you don't live in the district but request Dixon and are lucky enough to get in, you won't be disappointed in the education your child receives!
