As a student at Dixon high I really know the inside scoop. I am one of the high achieving ap/honors students, but I have to say our school has a lot to offer.This school offers a variety of ap/honors courses. More than the average student can fit into their schedule. This year every class I am taking is ap, honors or an advanced music course. Our school offers many oppurtinities and has teachers and staff that care (most of them anyways.) We have a learning center that is open after school that offers free tutoring and all over teachers classroom's you'll see college posters and posters telling you what the a-g requirements are to get into college. We have a counselor specifically for college and he is a big help. Our school has academic clubs including the science and engineering club. We have all sorts of resources and people there to help you. We have a program with Solano community college where students can take college courses while at the high school and get college and high school credits for the class. The biggest problem I've had with this school is scheduling conflicts because I want to take too many ap/honors classes at a time, but can't fit it in.Our school has a lot to offer, but the school isn't going to hand you the opportunities on a silver platter, students have to listen to the announcements and look to see how they can better themselves. The staff is there to help the kids. They care and will help. You just have to ask for it.

Not enough honors/ap classes. The counselors were not interested in the futures of their students. The teachers could be more serious as well with their coursework, less movies.

Safe learning environment. State-of-the-art facilities, including two computer labs, huge library, theater, two gyms, impressive stadium, and more. Tremendous educational options for students, including AP and Honors Courses, on-campus college courses through the new DHS College Advancement Program, and dual-credit opportunities with Solano Community College. Strong Ag program, great Athletics Dept and coaches, good band, and friendly campus. Principal and Superintendent are well-liked and really care. Small-town environment, but at DHS they are trying to think big.

I was a student here and graduated from DHS a couple years ago. My time here could have been better, but I made the most of what I could. in terms of academics, the school as a whole doesn't do too well. The average student graduates here with around a 2.5 GPA. This is not due to the administration being sub-par as a whole, but because much of the student population does not try to the best of their ability. There are the "AP/Honors" group of kids every year that get very high marks academically, but this makes up 10-15% of each class. Many of the students just float by day to day, not trying. This could be because that DHS allows students to graduate with Ds on their transcript, but this is only speculation. There are plenty of AP courses offered and are fairly easy to get into, and are straight forward when it comes to getting high marks. One thing that DHS does do right is its independent studies program. A student a part of this program can take community college classes for both high school and college credits. Be warned though, only self motivated students usually do well with this route. Overall, DHS is a decent high school and I'm proud to have gone here.
