Dickinson High School is a pretty good high school, especially when you compare it to some other schools, though some of the classes tend to get difficult. A massive campus with plenty of classes, lots of students, and a great library. If at all possible though, I wish they would get tastier food, and maybe some teachers that are less strict. But other than that, it's a fine high school to attend!

My experience here has been unbelievable. My teachers I’ve had for the pass 4 years have helped me get ready for college. The staff here has been excellent, getting students to where they need to be and get students ready for graduation. Everything about DHS has gotten me to where I️ am today!
Dickinson High School was average because some teachers were not willing to give their all to everyone, the school had a double standard, and the students were outrageous at times. I'd like to see some change in teachers behavior, maybe see them more willing to give their all to a student who needs it. Also, construction of a 9th-grade center should be looked into because it would help the freshman calm down. Lastly, I would like to see teachers treat those who participate in sports, and those who do not, treated equally, not one above the other. While they have their downfalls, Dickinson still remains the school district with the most awards because their student population is so large. The administration was open to finally give us free dress code as long as it is appropriate. Overall, I have to say the High School was average compared to the other high schools in the area.
