Dell Rapids School District Reviews

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.

Ok so Dells isnt a bad school, its just the people in the school are trash. The staff are actually all pretty nice if youre nice to them and the food is actually pretty good somtimes. As a student there isnt a ton of diverse groups. Very clique induced. Some of the subjuct matter taught in classes arent helpful at all for things such as the ACTs. So over all not a horrible school.
Dell Rapids High School is a small town high school. Everyone knows everyone and school feels like a little community. The teachers are amazing and want to help in every way possible. The experience of high school in Dell Rapids is something you will never forget.
