I love how the district really focuses on college readiness. The students are able to choose from a plethora of classes that tie in with a potential career choice to see if that career is for them, and it lets the students know what they want t do before college without wasting money on classes that are for a career they they don't want to pursue anymore . USD 443 also lets the student choose what type of High school Diploma they want, depending on if a particular student goes to college or not. by doing this if student A does not want to attend college, they don't have to attend as many required classes as student B, who is planning on further education.

I would like to see more diversity and acceptance of cultures. Overall, Dodge City School District is very authentic and supportive of their students and parents.
Dodge City Unified School District is in my opinion one of the best! There is such a diverse population in this area and the faculty and staff are by far some of the best. We have had two teacher of the year recipients come out of our high school, which is amazing. I am proud to say I went to DCHS Public schools.
