17 Parent Reviews for Dexter High School

We are currently juniors at DHS. We believe that DHS is a WONDERFUL school. I completely disagree with he bullying comment and the diversity comment.

I am a former student of Dexter High School (I graduated two years ago) and I would like to agree with the former student who posted on October 24, 2004. Dexter is severely lacking in diversity of all forms - not only ethnically, but also in terms of class, political ideologies, religions, and so forth. ...  Read more
