Dickinson Independent School District Reviews

A lot of the teachers at Dickinson High are really friendly and will talk to you and teach with the complete intention of helping you succeed. The principal, Dr.Smith, is really hands-on and she treats all of us as important as if we're as important as her own family. There are also a lot of officers in order to ensure we're safe and okay. However, my only issue with the school is that too much of the funds are put into mainstream sports like Football (though we do have really good teams). To counteract this, though, they do offer a lot of different meals to choose from and the pudding is actually pretty great.

Dickinson High School students are far from ordinary. Here, I have made several friends, learned a lot about myself, and learned a lot academically. At our Football games, we are one big family. It's no question that our atheltic program is filled with determined athletes who feel it in their heart. There is great diversity throughout the school yet there is always somewhere somebody can fit in, since our school porvides several different extra curricular programs and clubs such as robotics, journalism, NHS, ect. I believe the one thing our school could work on is being more accepting to change- such as policies preventing students to learn just because of a dress code violation, should be elimated, and the councling should be more open and helpful to those stuggling. However overall, the Gator Family is definitely one i'm proud to be apart of.
Dickinson Independent School District is accompanied with a large diversity of students regarding races and personalities. The student body is competitive in all forms of performance in departments such as academics, sports, music, and art. Teachers are mostly dedicated with good personalities. The main issues are involved in the student resources such as technology and food. The district, especially the high school, are still using old textbooks, desks, and computers. The food quality is also not the best. Also the cost of taking tests for advanced placement students is very high due to trouble balancing expenses.
