Dexter Community School District Reviews

My experience with the Dexter Community School District has been very good. I have gone to Dexter schools for all my elementary and high school years. To begin with, the academic experience has been great, especially in high school. I have been able to take numerous AP and advanced classes, and the school offers the opportunity to participate in the IB Diploma Program. If anything could be improved, I think that the school should offer more AP classes, since the AP to IB ratio heavily favors IB students. Extracurriculars and sports are fantastic at school, and the staff are all very committed to helping students succeed. My time at Dexter has been a great experience overall.

Dexter Community Schools prepares students very well for college and offer a multitude of AP/IB/Honors courses to students. However, I would like to see the school district put some money into helping the kids that academically struggle. Also most of the teachers are very welcoming and are involved in the students learning. They really do want what is best for each student which allows students to create solid relationships with their teahcers. Dexter is not a diverse community. It would be nice to see an influx of students who have different culutural backgrouds.
I was in dexter school district for all 12 years from Cornerstone to DHS. I loved my time there and all of my teachers were very invested in my education and wanted me to succeed. Dexter high school provides a rigorous course schedule for those who desire it. I took a combination of IB and AP classes. One thing that I did not appreciate about DHS is the fact that the administration and many teachers favored the IB program over all the other tracks. Being a non-diploma student but still taking rigorous classes, I felt that I was less valued than the diploma students. Other than that, dexter was a safe, inviting place where students are personally connected with their teachers, and I feel very prepared going into college in the fall.
