Dyett is a good school but need more sports
—Submitted by a student


Posted August 21, 2007

I think that Dyett is clearly a school in transition. It has gone from bad to better and is continually improving thanks to the strong administrative team. It appears that attendance is up, test scores are up, teacher morale is up, and student interest in their school is up. Dyett may not be what it ought to be, but it sure isn't what it used to be.


Posted August 29, 2005

I think that Dyett is an execellent school it just needs the right people to operate it and it needs more structure and more extracurricular activities that the students need. And It needs to able to be compared to other top schools like Kenwood,King, And Hyde Park. All of these schools are in the same community, but yet so different. Dyett has no AP classes to offer, they have uncertified teachers and this is only the begining.

I think that dyett should be close down all the kids do is fight you would think that they are being tought that a child that wont to learn can't learn if they have to worry about someone wonting to fight theme every time you look up the teachers they had befor was very good with the kids. the kids that's been at dyett know that the teachers tha's there now are no good they act like they students in thats not good!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Prairie State Achievement Examination (PSAE) to test students in grade 11 in reading, math and science. The PSAE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
