Dexter Community School District Reviews

The Dexter Schools are awesome. It is more like a community because of how we know the kids all the way from kindergarten though school. This builds a solid foundation of friendship and acquaintances which leads to sense of safety and self esteem. Teachers really care about our futures and prepare us for college. Even though I am interested in the sciences, I do wish they had more business related courses to explore. Dexter is a great small town feel that has prepared me to explore the world.

Dexter has always been my home and I didn't know a different life until I started working and met new people. I found that Dexter is very sheltered and many people don't understand the real world or struggles that others go through. A lot of people in Dexter are given everything and make fun of people who are less fortunate. When I realized this, I couldn't wait to move on from this small town.
I loved how much effort the teachers put in to every individuals learning and school experience, and how many options to challenge yourself and prepare for college the administration offered. The close community made it even more of an unique experience that has truly made me a better person and student.
