I have been at Dierks High School and elementary my whole school career. I love this school and all the things that happen here. We have the most school spirit even though our teams seem to be in a slump. This school is a place that I will never forget because it has taught me everything I know. The teacher treat you like family and never skip a beat to help you with anything.

The teachers are all very welcoming. They work with all the students, and help you when you need it. The faculty is very nice, and there are two different choices for lunch everyday. Some of the academic areas need improvement; however, overall, it is a really great school.
I think that Dierks High School is a very good school, but they push people to go to college too much. College is not for everyone and I think the school doesn't realize that. Also, the school spends too much money on sports and not enough for academics.
