Teachers great. Students Eh. Based on chronic student absenteeism, suspensions/expulsions, and survey responses on the school environment from students and parents. The staff and teachers are so supportive and after a few years it really starts to feel like home! We do not have a severe amount of bullying, not saying it does not happening but we do a good job at keeping at a minimal and are currently trying to eliminate it all together with various assemblies and helpful clubs and organizations that help us.

Dearborn High is an amazing school. The teachers there care about their students and genuinely want them to succeed. Many resources are available to ensure this. Technology is used in almost all classrooms and the teaching styles are very efficient. The school is filled with different extracurricular activities and clubs and different events. Students enjoy going to this school and are proud of it. The school is not very diverse, but you won’t notice the difference since it feels like one big student body. This school is ideal. Kids are well behaved and focus on their learning. Dearborn High School is truly one of the best schools in the city.
From 3 years of experience at Dearborn High School, I learned that there is goods and bads. The goods is that the school is dedicated to ones education and offers many opportunities to students. The bad is that the teachers and administration may be rude or unfair most times. Also, the school may be diverse but students of minorities are looked down and aren't treated well by students and some staff. Overall, ignoring the downs about the school, its easy to get around and do really good.
