    "Overall, Dixie is a great, but it is part of a poor county with ltitle funding. However, we do well with what we're given."

    "High school sucks, but it wasn't that bad at Dixie. Students have ample opportunity to be successful in academics, and a few of the teachers seem to genuinely care about each student they teach."

    "Dixie High School is located in a very poor, rural part of South Carolina. Money isn't spent correctly within the district. Sports are given more attention than academics. The softball team gets brand new uniforms every year while the school building falls apart. Our bathrooms smell of sewage because the plumbing doesn't work. Our ceilings are filled with mold. Despite all of this; however, a few teachers are able to actually educate students. I can count on one hand how many teachers actually educated students and didn't just read from a textbook or PowerPoint. Those few teachers are what save Dixie High School. Without them, all the students would probably dropout because the conditions are so horrible. The district can't decide whether to consolidate the two schools while students sit in unhealthy conditions getting a below average education."

    "I have spent the entirety of my high school career at Dixie, and over the years, I have grown in appreciation for this small school in the upstate of South Carolina. The majority of the teachers and staff are willing to work one-on-one with students seeking extra help and go above the expectations to see that a child succeeds. Overall, my experience at Dixie High School has been positive, though, I would love to see new clubs and more challenging classes offered in the future. I also think students would enjoy a greater number of elective and college-level classes that go beyond just the core curriculum."

    "Dixie High School is filled with diverse students and teachers. The atmosphere overall is pretty positive and a huge majority is very active. Dixie High School provides many classes and chances to get college credit as well as clubs, activities, and sports. Everyone has a blast on D-Week. And the athletics departments are very liked. Dixie High School is known as a high competitor towards other schools in the region."
