The school needs to work a bit more on student-involved activities. The administration is great and resources are great!

What I liked about dewey academy was how not only did they care about your educational life, but they also cared for you personal well being.
i liked the fact that i got the opportunity to actually learn a lot of beneficial things that prepares me for the real world such as budgeting and loans. something i would prefer to change is getting locked outside the gate for the entire class period for being late because i understand that being late can be a distraction but that cuts into our daily learning as well as attendance because we now obviously missed that class period for the day.
