The people in the DC-G community are wonderful people and are very helpful. The people in the community try their hardest to be the best they can be and are friendly to one another. The DC-G academics are very high. The teachers at DC-G try to be there for their students and try to help them 1 on 1. DC-G has a 1 on 1 for computers and it makes it easier to do homework and do classroom activities. DC-G students all get along most of the time and there is little to no bullying done at this school. DC-G tries to make learning a fun and efficient way to do work. It keeps the kids on their toes and keeps them motivated to come to school. The kids at DC-G has a high attendance rate and little to no students miss a lot of school. The sports side of school gets many kids involved. The sports teams at DC-G are all pretty good and all the kids that participate all have good sportsmanship. Overall the community and the DC-G family all work well and support one another.

A combination of fast growing Grimes and country Dallas-Center, DCG was the perfect mix of racist Trump supporters, and liberal city kids. Many of my teachers helped out throughout my time there, and really fought for the underdog. Unfortunately, the administration at DCG doesn't have much time for the underdog. I would like to see less focus placed on the football team and their field, and more focus placed on smaller groups like the GSA and the arts.
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.
