I liked the school spirit and most of the teachers. It is a good environment for children to grow up around. The school is small but you get to know each and every one of the students here at Dewey and it makes school feel more like a home rather than a place of teaching. Although I love Dewey, it does not teach the students everything they need to know before they graduate. Dewey needs to start teaching material better. I myself feel that I have not learned to my full potential here at Dewey and believe that I should have much more knowledge than I do now.

When I went to school here, a long time ago, we had a booster club that every Christmas would wrap presents and do other special things throughout the year and the proceeds would go back into the school account for the extra curricular activities. I miss the size of our band and the fact we had show choir and put on plays. Our band has dwindled to almost nothing now and I'm not sure when the school did away with show choir and the plays. We used to have coaches that would not only push our kids to be great at sports and win, but also make sure they were safe and had fun. The safety and fun is still there, but now people feel the need to coddle and only suggest the kids try harder instead of motivating them to want to push and train harder. There is no more art class except in high school and the foreign language selection has become less optional, but other than that I had a blast while there, my children attend now and they like it too.
I am in my second year at Dewey high school. While I have had a pretty good time, it is important to have everything in consideration while looking at a survey. Most of the classes are good, although there have been a couple of teachers there that I have had in my two years that can be jerks and some that don't seem to know what they are doing. But also a few that are great. Our sports are pretty unreliable year to year, and our overall student mentality is pretty bad.
