Dickinson Fine Arts Academy 2

Hello i am a former student of Dickinson (2010-14). I was in the arts program. This school was full of lies. The principal ( Mr.Sims) made promises and never kept them. He also yelled about anything and everything. And punished everyone not just the ones who deserved it. One person could ruin everything. This school was just based on the I-Step and really didn't care if you passed or failed. Also this school didn't prepare the 8th graders for high school. Plus, when the state department came to our school he sugar coded everything. He made us seem like we where a perfect school but in reality we weren't! And don't think i'm just talking for myself because i'm not i could give a list of past or present students who feel the same way. Thank you for your time - past student

I go to this school.. and well, the kids don't really know when to just shut up and pay attention. They all want to grow up too fast.. I also kind of blame some of the strict teachers. I am glad to be going to this school, but I would like it if kids would actually participate in things.

This School isn't bad. Teachers sure are on it if there is a problem w/any of the students.

I think that this school is great school. My favorite teacher isn't really a teacher, it's our principal Mr. Fulce, he is so funny, and nice. Even though people are nice at my school, they do take quick actions for trouble-makers.
