Dexter Community School District Reviews

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
Review Dexter Community School District
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.
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.
