Dodge City Unified School District Reviews

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.

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.
They are offering more and recently expanded. But when there isn't really other options out here like a private school this is what you have to deal with. I feel like if there was a private school better education maybe. lots of opportunities. They also don't do the best at telling students about scholarships or helping apply to scholarships for college. at least when i went there.
