    Extracurriculars: The extracurricular activities are great in my opinion. The clubs and activities are very inviting and include people from many different backgrounds. Sporting events are the best extracurricular activities that bring the school as well as the community together.

    Administration & Policies: For the most part Dakota focused their punishment on senior pranks and going off campus for lunch which I think could have been more focused on the weed in the school towards the end of my senior year and the falling enrollment.

    Sports & Fitness: Dakota Ridge has a really good sports program from basketball to softball to football. I was involved in the softball team and all 4 years we went to playoffs and twice to state. Their programs are well managed and all the coaches know what they are talking about.

    Teachers: Overall in my 4 years at Dakota Ridge High School I had a pleasant experience with most of my teachers. As it is with any school there were a couple I didn't mesh with but there were a great selection of teachers with good education backgrounds and approachable.
