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.

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.
School district is okay, but administration is not helpful with student problems. There are some good teachers, but there are many duds that don't teach well. At DCG, if your student is a good one, he or she will get along fine. If not, tough luck.
