Dixie High School Reviews

Dixie High School is located in a very poor, rural part of South Carolina. Money isn't spent correctly within the district. Sports are given more attention than academics. The softball team gets brand new uniforms every year while the school building falls apart. Our bathrooms smell of sewage because the plumbing doesn't work. Our ceilings are filled with mold. Despite all of this; however, a few teachers are able to actually educate students. I can count on one hand how many teachers actually educated students and didn't just read from a textbook or PowerPoint. Those few teachers are what save Dixie High School. Without them, all the students would probably dropout because the conditions are so horrible. The district can't decide whether to consolidate the two schools while students sit in unhealthy conditions getting a below average education.

Dixie High School challenged me for 4 years to be the best that I could academically, mentally, physically, and emotionally. The staff all want me to succeed and become a success in life!
Well being a gay guy in the “country” part of South Carolina, it’s been a tough experience. However, most of my classes have been okay, they could be much better, but our district is pretty poor. I do believe they are making the best of what they have. The school itself was built in different stages, so some places are a lot newer than others. The faculty is a nice mix, they want to interact with you and make sure you are really comprehending the materials. Our lunches are awful. There’s not much else I can say about that. It has its rough edges, but overall it’s an okay School.
