    "Most John Dewey's students lack respect and do not have necessary consequences to their actions which leads to the classes becoming a mess at a lot of times. However, the school has many arts program and some clubs which require some effort from those in charge to become more effective."

    "Well. Dewey as a school is quite controversial. You can't really decide if it's a good school or bad. Which makes it a bad school. Yes alot of good memories you will have in there. But you are not in school for memories but you are in there to learn."

    "Not as bad but could have some improvements to make the school look better for example make it look better, this would attract more students. Definitely get better math teachers and more tutoring."

    "This school is a wonderful school in my opinion. The teachers really want to see the kids succeed and are there to help in any subject that we lack in. Majority of the student are very nice and bullying rarely happens in this school. You just have to stay clear of the wrong crowd and you'll be okay. But one thing I would like to see change is the scanning to get into the school. It's too crowded because everyone wants to get in early, which causes the student to get frustrated and start pushing and us being late to first period sometimes."
