I enjoyed my experience at Dixie Heights. The teachers were excellent, and the faculty and staff were great also. I was offered opportunities based on my individual skills and pushed to excell in my education and extra-curricular activities. Dixie has also made strides in the recent years to communicate better with parents which is much appreciated. My recommendation for improvement would be for a proactive plan for troubled students and disruptive classmates. Sometimes in an effort to protect these individuals, the class suffers as a whole and students are distracted from learning. All students have a right to a safe and productive learning environment.

Dixie Heights High School, in general, has very good academics. Many of the teachers value taking their time in explaining subjects and making sure the majority of students understand the material before rushing ahead. There is also a lot of group based activities, so for those who see value in discussing academics with others to reach better understanding, there is plenty of opportunity to do so. The only downside if the proliferation of a rather chaotic school culture, with a lot of negativity in its atmosphere, though there is no small amount of good, hardworking people with kind characteristics.
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!
