Deer Creek-Mackinaw Community Unit School District No. 701 Reviews

3 reviews
Dee-Mack is in a small town, and has that small-town feel. Everyone knows everyone else, which has its pros and cons. The teachers really know your student, and care how they are doing. Most have been more than willing to give extra help when necessary. The high school principal is wonderful. There are not many academic activities offered, like National Honor Society, and Spanish is the only language offered. I would like to see more sports offered, specifically soccer.

The district focuses on athletics more than education. There are a few good classes but not many that can actually prepare students for the future. Also, there are not many AP classes to choose from.
We have had many problems with this school and the readiness and willingness to fix it is slim to none
