Dell Rapids School District Reviews

I thoroughly enjoy the teachers and staff at the Dell Rapids Jr Sr High School. They are dedicated to helping students to excel in their classes even if it means taking extra time before or after school hours. The staff works diligently alongside the students to assist them in any way they can and help them become smarter, and brighter students then they already are. What I would like to see change would be more involvement with our special needs students.

I enjoy having elders that I can communicate with about any of my educational/personal situations, and Dell Rapids High School gives that opportunity with their fantastic staff.
This school has provided a serious amount of care to me. Obviously, when learning it must be double sided but I actually feel good about where I am located academically. The only bad thing is this school tends to push athletics ahead of every program here. Good for sport kids, bad for literally everyone else.
