I liked the Dixon High School community. I wish that the track, albeit nice, was regulation length. The teachers are good and care about the students. AP classes prepare students for college and they are working on building a school far. The marching, pep and jazz bands are great. If a student chooses to be involved and engaged at Dixon High School, they can gain a lot, both academically and socially, despite the school being in a small town. Close access to UC Davis, Sacramento and San Francisco makes there a significant availability to summer programs. Dixon High also offers Saturday School to those that get behind in units.

ALMOST ALL of the teachers are very academically involved with students and connect with them in a way where students can feel safe to ask for help either in school or personally and I feel that’s a very good quality for teachers to have nowadays. The only reason I docked one star is because the student body is horrible to one another. There’s no sense of inclusiveness, at least in my experience. I felt like an outcast for all of high school and I’m a very extroverted person. Other than that, the school is great.
Dixon High is a nice small town high school, with just over one thousand students, there is a decent variety in people there but it is still small enough to know who almost everyone is. The school could improve hiring better teachers especially in the math department, have cleaner facilities in certain placers and help prepare people more for life outside of high school.
