In my experience being at Dixon High for 4 years now i have learned so much. The very important thing about Dixon High that makes it special, are the lovely staff and teachers. They are what made my experience amazing and i give them props for putting up with so much! As for the help offered here to go to college is a class known as Avid but other than that its scarce help. i do believe the school needs more improvement on support for kids who struggle in classes as well as for their sports and lastly the food is not always great quality . Over all i did enjoy the amazing friends and help i encountered but it does need more money to be able to do more fun things on campus such as senior trip which we couldnt afford , neither year book quotes ;(

What I liked most about the Dixon High School were its many options in classes such as Advanced Placement and Honor courses. However, per my personal preference, I would have very much enjoyed the option of an Advanced Placement Physics course to really challenge my understanding of mathematical application and knowledge. The teachers of Dixon High are overall very supportive of students within the classroom and as friends, contributing to a positive environment for education and community. However, decisions made from our administration do not completely consider college-readiness. For students who are not part of the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) curriculum, they may have difficulty in keeping up with most of the requirements involved with upcoming dates for college readiness, unfortunate for the potential of many of our students.
My experience at Dixon High has been pretty alright. Being in a small town that only offers retail and fast food part-time jobs, Dixon High prepares their students for college via full school events which are prepared by our on-school college counselors. Academics at this school seem to falter here and there, this is something that I personally have noticed, teachers this year have faltered in their teaching ethics, for example not allowing for much student expression and resources to help us. Luckily enough, within our own student body, we are inviting and help eachother out when we need it and look for it. Overall, Dixon High does play a big part in college readiness but falters when it comes to student-teacher contact at times.
