Dearborn City School District Reviews

Despite being culturally diverse, Dearborn schools is a well-fit district that i've been attending since kindergarten. My experience was quite well, considering the fact that I never complained about the schools I went to (except for high school). There could definitely be more funds to expand the performing arts events, which are often left out. Music and art definitely need to have a spotlight, which is why more grants are needed. I like the overall environment of the dearborn district because it has always been familiar to me- my community is very tight-knit, schools are always trying their bests for their students, though there'll always be flaws.

I love the Dearborn City School District, I had a great experience and I am finishing my senior year and the staff and everybody in this district are nice and very helpful. I just hoped that they would help with scholarships more in my school. They have great opportunities for learning and increasing knowledge by offering after school activities and laptops. The staff in Dearborn is very nice and cooperative in helping you with your studies. The school that I am in can be better by helping students more with scholarships
I just graduated from high school and in all my 12 years of school, high school sucked. Middle school was great but high school lacked. I didn’t appreciate the strictness and while I encouraged the security of a school and it’s great to have safety I didn’t like cops being at every corner and having to be told that it was a schools duty to be raising security and the students to be extra cautious. It felt more like a prison then a school. After hearing about shootings one after the other through out my 4 years, all I saw when walking into a classroom was escape routes. I don’t think the school is at fault though. We all know what’s really to blame -guns. Anyway this is meant to be a review so as a graduate I’m gunna have to say it was good and I’m super stoked that I never had to go through a life risking situation just cause I went to school.
