My experience with Dickinson High School has been rewarding. I have learned the skill of managing my extracurricular activity in football and challenging online college course, Pre AP courses, and Dual Credit courses along with my pathway in Engineering . I am a Gator Scholar. I currently hold a 3.482 GPA. I rate Dickinson High School an A. Dr. Billy Smith, the principle is an awesome person. She shows how much she cares for the kids at Dickinson. She involves herself on the football field to support us. Go Gators!

The school does the best that it can. The administration is outdated and not considerate of the feelings of students. Many decisions are made with no regard for daily school life. We are often treated as if we attend a day care instead of a high school. However, many teachers are extremely passionate and consistently attempt to ensure complete and total understanding. At the same time, these passionate teachers are largely outnumbered by lazy and clique centered teachers.
Dickinson High School care about the student health and safety. Dickinson offer the student excellent career pathway that lead to having a great college experience. Dickinson High School has a great principal. The also care about the student. I like that the high school offer on campus dual credit courses for those student that choose to excel in their classes. I also like that they offer challenging and rigorous PreAP, AP and Honor classes for the students.
