I have friends who go here and they say that they really like DICKINSON and that they have wonderful teachers who love doing what they do best, so for you parents out there who try to do anything to keep your child as a friend is a sorry excuse. Don't try to be your kids friend because then they'll use anything to get you to fall for it, be a parent first and put them in tutoring because there are programs at the school to help bring up your child grade. Let's not forget you once used a sorry excuse to leave school like..."Mom I vomited come get me." or wake up saying this in the morning,"I don't feel good," and then when your parents go get dress you pretend you threw up." So saying that you had used excuses plenty of times to get out of school or to save yourself from getting in trouble. Because I had. Well I will be attending DICKINSON myself next year for a dual credit class. Be a parent first not a friend!!!

This school has some excellent AP/preAP teachers. As the parent of a sophomore I have yet to encounter or hear about any drug/ or violence issues that cause me any concern. Nice well maintained campus with many new facilities. If your child is a dedicated student they can get a lot out of their education here.

I am in the current senior class. class of 2012! This is a great school to be in if you take all AP classes and are willing to do the work. However, if you take regular classes, you get stuck with all the people that don't really care about an education and are just there for other reasons; regular are classes are going to be like these wherever you go. This year my sister graduated from DHS and will be attending the Business Honors program in the university of Texas at Austin. And I plan on attending an Ivy League Institution. Going to Dickinson has not hindered us in any way. Actually, it's because of all the great, extra- opportunity programs and great advanced placement teachers that we have been academically successful. Our parents didn't even finish High school in Mexico. And I have to say, Ive attendedd DISD school all of my life, and not once have I seen any sort of drug or heard of anyone using it at school. If your kid is using that excuse to justify his failure at school, don't use it to justify your failure as a parent.

Terrible school pulled my kid out as fast as i could. The teachers dont care about there education and the crime is bad. It was a constant battle to keep my kid on track and away from drugs. Do not enroll your child here.

My child hated this school. He had very few friends and even the ones he did have were terrible to him. The teachers do not care for the students and the school has a drug problem i would not recommend this school to anyone.

I am trying to get my kids out! As a parent of three students at the school I would urge other parents to not enroll their children in this High School if you have another choice. While school is what you make of it, and like all other schools there are good and bad teachers, this school has a very bad element to it. They have a terrible drug problem and crime is terrible. It has been a constant fight to keep my kids on track because of the influences they are exposed to here. We are actively looking for a way out.

First of all let me say that all of the Dickinson High School bashers, are wrong. Dickinson is such a beautiful campus. It is growing so fast and is really giving the city of Dickinson a name. Yes there are areas in dickinson that are unsafe and eyesores but every city has them. Dickinson has so much to offer. There are plenty of extra curricular activities to do. Plus the high school has so much spirit :) Go Gators! I love this high school, every part of it. The hole book situation..... we've/ I've always had books. Never in my elementry through high school years have I not come home with books. Actually every year I get too many books from english, pre-cal, chemistry, US history and spanish. The first day of school I get over loaded with books. Maybe class sets are not as avalible but homework will not hurt.Ilovethedickinsongators!

As a former student, and now parent of 3 students that attend DHS, I love it. DHS, like other public schools is what you make of it. The teachers at DHS are wonderful! I believe another parent wrote that the kids just don't care. I think she is right, but they have special/advanced classes for those who do. I have 3 children at different levels in the school system and they keep their attention. Just because you have rebellious kids does not make a bad school. You have those in every school, even the private ones that you pay an arm and leg for. As far as text books, they have them, but what do you need that for when all public schools are so focused on TAKS. Public schools no longer teach the same way, no more need for the text books. Thank our state for that, not the district.

As a former student of DHS, i am proud to say that the year i spend in the paint chipped crowded hallway were the happiest of my life. We had teachers who cared, a great variety of after school activities and personally i remember being given another chance more than once when a teaher or principal saw that i needed a break. I would do anything to be able to go back to my high school years at DHS. GO GATORS! S Hayslip

I am a student at Dickinson High School at this moment and there is nothing I dont like about it. It is a great atmosphere to grow and learn in. Now it may not be rated the best school in Texas but it sure is great for me the only thing i dont like is some of the dresscode.

I am a currently a senior at Dickinson High School and I would like to point out to the parents that the most intelligent comment on this site, about DHS, came from a former student. No, we do not all have text books yes, some of our teachers are under qualified BUT, for those students who, like myself who want to learn it is possible. I am not so profoundly pleased that I would suggest all schools be like DHS but, I have to admit my four years there have been.. Intresting. The problem is not that of the whole but of the many students that just don't care. I for one think that if a parent intends to insult or criticize DHS that they attend Lighted Windows Open Doors (yes we have a tutoring program!!) and learn how to speak properly before doing so again.

I have nothing good to say about this school in particular. For instance last year I was informed that although the school had the money to purchase textbooks, there were no funds to ship them from the warehouse to the school, thus my kids did not have textbooks. I have yet in four years to have either of my kids receive any type of homework, or bring home any school projects, yet report cards and progress reports come home saying there is a lack of turned in assignments with no other word of what or when they were not submitted. How can a child bring home grades that are subpar, and not once is a parent contacted by either a teacher or counsellor to let them know if there is a problem and where it lies. As a future educator, I hope I dont end up there.

I am a guardian over my nephew who is attending Dickinson School District. My problem last year and this year is the fact that students are not given homework because I have been told twice, they do not return homework. So they are given time in class to complete their assignments. The students are not issued text books either and there fore unless they keep all the paperwork passed out in the class there is no study material. There are some teachers who have no control on the class room yet that child is expected to pay attention and listen (over the roar) and then to understand enough to pass. I am not saying all teachers have this problem and I do know there are some great teachers. But overall I have a very poor rating for the Dickinson public school.
