    "I went to Dixon High School for my entire high school career and I'd say it is probably pretty average. It's a public school, so you can't really expect things to super fancy or up to date."

    "Even though I've only attended this school for a couple of years so far, I've enjoyed my time here. The teachers and student body, for the most part, are extremely friendly and willing to help out when needed. I have built many friendships with other students at DHS. Some of my favorite experiences from this school would probably be the sports teams I took part of: softball, volleyball, and basketball. The coaches are always there to help you with your fundamentals and other skills you'd like to improve. My teammates have been nothing but supportive of each other and it is really inspiring to experience. These things are what makes Dixon High School unique. You have all kinds of students to make friendships with and teachers who genuinely care about your safety and health. If I were able to choose this school and do it all over, I would."

    "The teachers at Dixon High School are very knowledgeable when it comes to the subjects they teach. They are very willing to share their knowledge with me, and the rest of the students, that attend DHS. Their teaching styles, however, are nothing spectacular. Some do not do too many activities that get the students more involved with the lesson or use many electronics besides the typical SmartBoard. This causes many of the students to lose focus on what they are being taught, which means that their grades tend to drop. Although, their relationships with the students are nothing but friendly. For most of them, that is. Some of the DHS teachers do not seem to click well with their students. The grading scale used by DHS teachers has remained consistent and for some, they even grade more strictly."

    "Most do the best they can but some are there just for the paycheck."
