Teachers and faculty are very encouraging and relatively small class sizes makes learning easy! One-to-one computers and updated technology makes learning fun and interactive. The sports teams are fun to be apart of weather you a star athlete or just want a way to make new friends!

It's an all around good school. There are many different classes to choose from, but I'd like to see more computer classes. Kwik Star (gas station) is just down the road so during lunch it's nice that you can go get something else if you want. Our sports teams are very good and make it to state pretty much every year so if you're good at those than join for sure. We also have clubs like Robotics and there's band/and or choir, so there's something for everyone. All in all, I give Dike-New Hartford 4 stars.
The school building is up to date and they always try to add little quirks to our everyday school appearance on the outside. We have an absolutely amazing guidance counselor who could probably get you through a war and back, and you'd still feel just as happy as if you were sitting with her in her office. At my school, parents are constantly being invited to do activities with the students and teachers, whether they be planned or impromptu. It's definitely not uncommon for us as students to spot parents here and there during our activities and school hours. Technology wise, I think we're finally taking a step closing to accomplishing something great. This year we're getting out own laptops individually, which is perfect, because we've been waiting a long time to get those to the students! As for the teachers, they may be hard on you with expectations, but they usually feel more like friends than teachers and they are always just one step away, waiting to give you that extra little push of encouragement or explanation that you need.
