Dodge City High School is a great school! Great is an understatement, it is a school that cares for each and every student. Everybody at the school makes a big difference and the entire school really cares about diversity and how everyone can come together as more than a school. My experience with this school has been the best, something that I couldn't expect with other schools I've been to. In conclusion, Dodge City High School is a small school but contains a big heart of which we are all a part of.

Dodge City High School is enjoyable. It is a school where people can come together in more ways you can imagine. The school itself offers a plethora of sports and extracurricular activities ranging from baseball to forensics. Unfortunately, our minds aren't getting as much exercise as our bodies. The curriculum needs to be more challenging as to prepare us for college. Courses that include more application to the real-world rather than textbook applications, and less memorization.
My experience with the high school was pretty decent, although I had struggled here and there. But, I was surprised at how much the school has changed over the year as well as the classrooms. I’m glad that the school decided to make some changes for th students and also help students with directing them onto the right path, and helping them with whatever they need planned for their future.
