At Dee-Mack High School there is such a high focus on sports and how well you do in fitness that the academic portion of schooling is overlooked. The books are falling apart and many of the teachers don't teach their subjects with an enthusiasm for it, nor do they apply their subjects to real life. Also I, personally, have experienced bullying at Dee-Mack and know of many others who have and there hasn't been actions taken to educate the students on the effects of bullying. My favorite part of Dee-Mack is probably Spanish! Though I wish we had some more languages for us to learn.

Dee-Mack high school has a tradition of pride. Yes we are small but we all are a family. This high school has taught me so much. I couldn't have asked for better teachers than the ones I have. Honestly if your thinking about moving to Mackinaw do it. You won't regret it!
Loved my time at Deer Creek Mackinaw. Being such a small school the teachers were almost always willing to meet with individual students before, during, and after school. Would definitely recommend getting involved in some of the clubs or sports, easy way to meet new friends and to invest more in your interests.
