Dell Rapids High School Reviews
Dell Rapids High School has no difficult classes, virtually no clubs, almost no AP classes, and focuses heavily on athletics. There are no clubs to join if you aren't interested in sports or drama. There is no focus on academics and this school offers NO challenging classes, save for about two or three. This is not a good school for somebody who wants to succeed academically and/or participate in something other than sports. Little to no opportunities here.
I love Dell Rapids because it is small and you know pretty much everything which can be the a bad thing also. I used to go to a big school and I fell through the cracks and was getting lost in the school system, but when I moved I didnt seem to fall through to much. The only thing that I would fix is that it needs more class choose, they only have the basic classes to get you into a college but I would like to have a more advanced class to have a head start on the majors I want to go in. I would also fix the way they have extra curriculars set up. They have sports at the top and it they make it seem like that is their number priority, then comes academics, then other things like choir, band, drama, ect. I would like things to be more evenly spread.
Dell Rapids High School is a wonderful school with extracurriculars for everybody. No matter what your interests are, there is a place for you there.
