Dallas Center-Grimes Community School District Reviews

I love my school because my teachers have made me feel safe, prepared, and excited for my future. Our recognition of AP scholars proves that we care as a district about the education students receive. Both academics and extra-curricular activities are strong at DC-G. Many activities are offered which allow students with varying talents to find a club or event that suits their interests. Although I faced some personal challenges along the road of life, I wouldn't change anything about my high school experience. I have been privileged to participate in activities that offered leadership opportunities as well as take AP classes that allowed me to learn at a more challenging pace. None of this could be possible without our amazing staff and administration.

I love Dallas Center-Grimes High School. The teachers are good and actually care about the well being and success of every child that walks into school. It's a very positive environment to learn and grow, and I have loved my time at this school. I feel like the teachers would do anything to help me succeed and learn, and they love providing tools for my success. I could not have picked a better school to attend for the past four years.
DCG is an amazing school. The only downside is there is not a lot of diversity compared to other schools, but I have noticed there is more diversity this year than years past. Parent involvement is really good. Parents are constantly volunteering to take part in their school district. I haven't ever noticed bullying, but I know that it exists here. On the plus side, from what I've heard, there's not a lot of bullying, especially compared to other schools nearby.
