DeKalb Community Unit School District No. 428 Reviews
I haven't finished High School Yet, but the experience so far has been amazing. I play basketball and soccer and the students are so caring to one another. The school supports one another and it is amazing. It's a great time during football season and basketball season when everyone is cheering and laughing together. I am also in the band and that has created a second family for me. DeKalb Highschool really cares about their students. The teachers are caring and supportive and just really want the best for you.
Brand new facility, Academics are pretty good, clubs and activities really get you involved, the culture over all is pretty good, sports are a huge focus at DeKalb High school each sports team is pretty good and they have good coaches, DeKalb is also very diverse, Id say DeKalb gets your ready for college but sometimes they are too easy on you, there is a large variety of food to choose from at lunch, the food could be a little better but over its pretty good, over all I really liked DeKalb and I would recommend it to any students looking for a highschool.
I enjoyed the teachers at Dhs they showed me my talents, being at Dekalb High school helped me find my career I wouldn’t have thought that the teachers would go on the roller coaster of my high school years with me but they did and it taught me how to grow up.
