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”

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.
I have been attending DISD since I was in kindergarten. They have done an excellent job of expanding, and becoming an involved community throughout the Dickinson-League City area. The district is diverse and attempts to cater to every student. At the elementary and middle school levels, the teachers are caring, well- educated, and strive to do the best for their students across the board. However, as the school levels increase to junior high and high school, the quality of the teachers, the food, and the resources are at a lower standard than that of the elementary and middle schools. While the extracurricular activities in the higher levels are superb, the actual quality of the education is not high compared to schools around it.
