I had a great experience at Dexter until COVID hit. Since it is a small school you can really connect with other students and teachers. The overall experience of going to school feels more engaging and personal because of this connection. You can basically befriend the whole school in a matter of days and meet a variety of people from different walks of life. By doing this you can inadvertently, become familiar with the entire down because Dexter Consolidated Schools focuses heavily on community. The only complaint I have is that Dexter should have a little more focus on college readiness.

Dexter Consolidated is overall a mediocre school, many of the kids here are not set up for their future or college, and this school hardly prepares their students. However there is some teachers that definitely put effort into their students, but that is a small portion.
I like that dexter schools are very close as community. The overall academic performance is not very efficient. Students lack structure and the parents have little or no involvement in the literacy means of their children
