Dixie heights High School is a phenomenal school and I love it so much there! Almost all of the teachers students can have a very positive relationship with. There are always some teachers who are not as connected with students as other teachers, but majority of the teachers are very helpful to students. Dixie offers a wide variety of classes and provides a course that is tailored to account for every student'a needs. Dixie always has resources available and I love it there!
Dixie Heights High School is a school of unlimited opportunities. Dixie provides a huge variety when it comes to clubs, sports, and classes. Students are encouraged to join as many clubs/activities as they would like, and it is very easy to get involved and make your voice heard. Dixie has student government, academic-oriented clubs, fitness clubs, drama clubs, volunteer-oriented clubs, sports teams, and much more. Dixie also provides a large variety of Advanced Placement classes in every subject area, and the teachers are very engaged and devoted to student success. The administration in general is always ready to help students with whatever they need, whether it be academic or personal. The student body of Dixie Heights contains many high-achieving students that strive to better themselves through education, and the school provides them with every necessity to do just that.
My overall experience has been breathtaking. I wouldn't change a thing for the world. This school is in a great location, filled with amazing people, and a good education! Whats more to ask for? This school has made me realize what I want in life, not only in the people I hang out with and choices I make, but with my education also. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't even have to second guess when it comes to picking this school. Forever, this school will be the best thing that's ever happened to me.
