Good school with excellent teachers with moderate food. Good extracurricular activities. Good experience.
i cannot begin to comprehend how unsafe and uncared for i feel at school. i’ve been going there 3 years, me and my friends are bullied horribly, there’s so many fights & disrespect at our school and i hate it. the school searched one of my friends before for no reason, because her “hoodie pocket looked funny” why because it had a zipper? dixon is unfair and cruel to the students. nobody has an opinion on anything. some of the teachers are even racist. one of my teachers has even cursed at the class almost every time i’m in his class and it sucks. we get none of the help that us students deserve, we’re dragged to school everyday thinking that everyday at dixon will be horrible. i hate dixon smith so much. the long busrides of the kids fighting with the driver. the teachers disrespecting students and when they say anything, they get bitched at. this school is disgusting and i’m so so happy i don’t go here anymore.
