I attended Dow High for my entire high school career. The school has a tremendous academic program in all courses that are taught by some of the best faculty. All of the teachers are so genuine. They not only care about a students grades, but also their physical and mental health. Dow has prepared very well for my college courses. I find myself already knowing a majority of the criteria that is being taught in my college courses due to the more difficult high school courses I passed. Overall, the school has a very welcoming environment and there is a club or sports team for almost anyone!

Great school to attend with some of the best teachers. All of the teachers care about your grade and will give you extra help if needed. There is also great tutoring opportunities. Also, there are always so many activities around the school. The school spirit is amazing, especially during football season! I would not have wanted to spend four years anywhere else.
Dow High has many opportunities for almost all students. I've enjoyed this past year getting involved with clubs and activities at the school. The teachers are wonderful, and many have won awards in our region. Additionally, our principal won an award for Principal of the Year in Saginaw Valley! School spirit is a huge part of Dow High, and definitely one of the greatest parts of the school!
