I loved feeling like a part of a family at Dowagiac Schools. I loved the personal and academic connections you could make with the staff of the schools. Going back to the school always warms my hear to see the improvements they are doing on the building and the style of learning. Dowagiac's teaching styles are fantastic, and the teachers are very open with the class work. The administration is very concerned as to parent and student concern, as well as the safety and academic perspectives of everyone involved in the school. The school environment is very inclusive and welcoming every year or time you spend in the school.

I absolutely loved my high school! It was the most interesting 4 years of my life! I really loved the fact that I can see people succeed after they walk out of the high school and graduate and find their passions in life! The one thing I would change within this school district would probably be expanding our education.
Dowagiac Union High School and the staff has effectively prepared me for what's to come, and has offered me many opportunities to help shape my future. The student body is very inviting and diverse, and school spirit is a regular theme in our district.
