I like how at dundee crown everyone is given a chance to state how they feel and their opinion. Also has the staff tries to get involved in as much as they can. The school also offers after school tutoring programs which i find to be very helpful because they offer it everyday, with all types of teachers there to help you with any class such as math to psychology! And lastly the students. The students at dundee crown are not afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Students at dundee crown are willing to fight for what is right and to make anything just for everyone.

Dundee-Crown gets such a bad rep from other people in the district, but I very much enjoyed my time there. There wasn't a hard social structure, so there weren't any cliques or bullies or anything of the sort. Some of the teachers I've had were very engaging and encouraging. The biggest problems we've had were just because we didn't have a lot of money. We definitely deserved more funding!
Public school - you get what you pay for. The administration unfortunately only cares about its athletes. Especially given this school has terrible athletics, maybe average at best, it was a constant slap in the face to anyone pursuing other interests. Students who would make records by winning multiple art awards at district and county wide art shows and their art compete nationally, music students who would win awards and perform downstate at IMEA, and many other amazing achievements would go unrecognized while they would constantly publicly praise (on announcements, newsletters, and social media) athletes who would receive "8th place" or some other mediocre "achievement". District 300 is horrible with arts funding, so to provide a proper creative outlet, I suggest looking elsewhere - if possible - or at the very least trying to engage them in classes outside of school (look into ECC or MCC).
