Dodgeville High School Reviews

I would say that Dodgeville is a good school overall, with most teachers caring about the well-being of their students, and how their students perform in their classes. However, it is a high school, and comes with the average bullying, cyber-bullying, and bigoted school community members. Especially with being a small town, in sports, the last name of the player matters, and one student can go an entire game without playing because their family isn't native to the town, no matter how good of a player they are. The same applies to the drama department. Though they are more fair, certain students have built names for themselves based on their parents being friends with teachers. So, overall, Dodgeville High School is a good school, just sometimes has questionable morals.

Dodgeville high school focused on sports, to the detriment of other extracurriculars. Music programs, acting programs, and after-school clubs did not receive nearly as much attention or funding. This sports dominated culture also had a negative effect on the students. Students in sports were given preferential treatment, and many enjoyed relationships with teachers who were also coaches that were reflected in their grades and treatment in the classroom.
Going to school at Dodgeville High School for the past four years has been wonderful. The staff is amazing. They are all very familiar with each other, students, the town itself, and their course material. If you ever need anything, they are always available to help. The building itself is also magnificent. It was just recently remodeled in 2017. It has a modern, sophisticated, and mature flare that is perfect for the learning environment. I have been given so many opportunities at this school, and I guarantee others have, too.
