Dallas Center-Grimes Community School District Reviews
This school district, at least when I was going through, had small enough classes that it was easy to learn, but large enough classes that you had more than 1 or two options for friends. The high school has many great teachers all which are wholeheartedly devoted to their work. There are plenty of upper-level classes which are good for students like me, but there also were plenty of ways for those struggling to get help. Within the students, there are some issues with race, sexual identities, and political affiliations, but besides these biases within the student population, I'm very glad I went here.
When it comes to education, DC-G is one of the many schools that offer great academic opportunities. There are a wide variety of classes offered to the students to help them discover themselves and what they are good at. Many classes can be easily applied to life outside of high school. Unfortunately, when it comes to teaching morals, the school is lacking. DC-G is a dominantly white school but the few POC who attend often have to deal with a lot of diversity issues and cultural differences, the school just doesn't step up. There are many times during my attendance at the school when I had to face the ignorance of my peers. Whenever I'd go to the higher-ups of the school, not much would be done. DC-G has so much potential in being a school with great academics and athletics. They just don't teach their students how to act like mature young adults who can sort out their differences rather than letting those differences divide them.
Loved the faculty and entire high school experience! It is a small enough community and has a big town feel. There is something at DC-G for everyone, including sports, choir, drama, or band.
