My experience from Dickinson High School makes me proud to say “Gator fight never dies.” I love connecting with my friends and meeting new people everyday , making a connection with your teachers and being able to focus on your self is truly a great experience. Experience gives you the option to learn so many life lessons and I was able to accomplish this through Dickinson High School! The most important over all is the functionality from Dickinson. I have never seen such a facility that can keep a grip on everyone and everything like Dickinson has done. When anyone asks “where are you from?” I am proud to say “Dickinson from the fighting gators”

Dickinson High School will forever be the most memorable part of my life. I've spent the last four years walking these halls, making friendships I'm so sad to be departing with. I've been blessed with amazing teachers that actually care about their students. At DHS, we are more than a paycheck, the teachers treat us like family. The amount of love and support the entire community provides is unbelievable. If I could improve something, I would change the amount of funding each program relieved because I am a firm believer in the ideas that the fine arts program matter just as much as football (as untexan that may sound) I've wanted to graduate for so long but now that it's actually upon me, I'm so bittersweet, I am so sad to go. Go gators.
The school itself has some faults but as myself going there it’s not bad. Here are some cons I’ve notice over the years.
They are building a freshman orientation center- which is a building just for freshman, not connected with the main school. The freshman will have to learn the lay out of not only the freshman orientation center but the school when they become sophomores.
The food is not bad, but if you decide to bring food to your kid, they will have to eat it in the office. As they cant bring it in the school because then the school will not be provided government food.
The school has history of teacher-student relationships. Of my 3 years of attending, 3 teachers have been put in prison.
They change a lot of things during the year. Huge changes that apparently can’t wait until the next changing everyone around.
I feel like that is it. But the sports and clubs are amazing, there is a wide variety.
