    Extracurriculars: we have so many clubs some students dont even know about them. most clubs are very well funded and have all the time and supplies they need to thrive. only a few dont last long or are not successful. it is also easy to start a new club at dixie.

    Overall Experience: we have many fun spirit days, my favorite was senior spirit day we got to hang out with the whole senior class and had lots of fun with the teachers too. most of the regular pep rally's were not looked forward to by many. several students would find a way out of them or just skip them all together. many fun school traditions that had been beloved by the students had been taken away by the administration and games that used to be just fun were now punishable.

    Teachers: most teachers are very knowledgeable and nice to the students. many go out of their way to help their students secede and have a positive experience in the class room. most teaching styles are also good because they allow all different types of learners a chance to really understand the material. their are a few teachers though that do not try or even help the students and make the class more stressful and less fun.

    Health & Safety: The main doors are locked and visitors are required to sign in. There are no metal detectors and very rarely do we have sweeps for drugs in the facility.
