I attended Dorchester Public Schools since I was in first grade. While the school is very small when compared to other schools, I feel like I had a good experience while there.

Small school with personal focus on every student. Each child matters. Also supported by a strong alumni base.
We have a very small school with little diversity. However, for being a small school the students are more prejudice and teachers let them say whatever they want to. Not only are a lot of the students in the high school portion prejudice but they also bully quite a bit. It is sad that the students get away with it seeing as how the teachers have less than twenty kids in a class and they still can't keep them in check. I've been to two other schools both at least ten times the size as my current school and no student ever got away with half the stuff the kids do at my school. It's sad that teachers with twice as many students have more authority and respect than those with less than twenty at a time.
