Dexter Community School District Reviews

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.
Review Dexter Community School District
The teachers here are in general some of the best human beings ever. They want to see even the most struggling students succeed. However, there is absolutely no diversity at this school. Administration is absolutely horrendous. In the middle school the principle fails to follow very simple guidelines with protocol. The school had accused me of being under the influence when I was 12 (I didn't even know what being under the influence was) so they pulled me into the office, searched me and my belongings, made me miss my bus and this failed to inform my parents. For those of you who don't know, it is illegal to search a minor without a legal guardian present. This is not the only instance that there has been issues with administration. They have a wonderful AP and IB program but very few classes that are just regular. Also have a wonderful dual enrollment program that I highly recommend
I love the community in the Dexter School District. Being a small, but growing district I am able to have a very close and person relationship with my peers and my administrators. Dexter offers so many opportunities for its students its unbelievable. No matter what your interest Dexter has a place for you, you're never left without a club or activity that suits your interests. Dexter has been an amazing place to receive my elementary and High school education, I wouldn't trade it for anything.
