I enjoyed the involvement of school activities, the environment at sport events and even throughout a normal school day. No matter how much I say I dislike the school I do actually enjoy it.

Our student section for sporting events was the highlight of the school. Not sure how it is today, but it was fun a couple years ago. Most of the teachers care about their students too.
I believe this school is a great school to attend for several different reasons that I will further explain. Although it's a small school it gives you the feeling of not having to know everyone but still feeling like a family. For example, this year we won Battle of the Fans, which means we had the best fans at basketball games in the WHOLE state of Michigan. There were so many things to plan and so many things that required teamwork to make this possible. I feel like we were a family during this time, not only the school itself but the community. I have been attending Dowagiac schools since I was a Kindergartener and I would not change it.
