Dixon Unified School District No. 170 Reviews

1 review
Upon my Junior year of high school, I transferred to Dixon. Not for any particular reason, just me and my parents had found a better house that they could retire in. I was extremely nervous for my first day, as I had not grown up with any of these students, nor knew anyone. The staff and students made it very easy to be comfortable and immerse myself in the environment in no time. I quickly found myself in extracurricular's that interested me, such as being the lead in the spring musical, becoming a drum major, and becoming choir president. Like all schools, Dixon has it's ups and downs but I'm truly thankful for moving to the school district and meeting the friends I have now.
