I'm glad I'm not the only paren that sees through the hiding district. The schools'/district's NUMBER ONE CONCERN is THEMSELVES (read: LIABILITY). They will do whatever it takes to skirt out of responsibility from turning the blame to someone else or avoid parents like the plague. you've got a 140k/yr overpaid superintendent who is not only rude, but clueless to what's happening in departments he, personally, is supposed to oversee. . Everytime you turn around they want the PARENT to fund something taxes used to pay for. These people think they are Okemos, but clearly lack CLASS. And the things going on in the halls of the HS?! RUN. You've been warned. My 10th grader has been very enlightening. 2 more years and he's done. May have to yank the 4th grader.

I have experienced nothing but the best from DeWitt, MI public schools. Their accademics are outstanding and the student's are hard working and kind. There is not a private school better than DeWitt, MI High School.

If I had to do it all over again, I would choose not to send my children to Dewitt schools. This school system always has to do everything their own way, parent suggestions and opinions are often unheard. My son often comes home and tells me about some gruesome things that are happening at school, which the administration tries hiding from the parents! Iv'e spoken with many other parents in my neighborhood and we are very unsatisfied. My son is an average learner, we are an upper-middle class family like 99% of the families in Dewitt. If diversity is important to you, Dewitt schools may not be a reasonable choice.

My child went to DeWitt schools for her whole life and absolutely hated the social structure. She found very little diversity. She also found the kids and staff to be "stuck up". Many of the teachers were unreasonable and extremely opinionated. The staff was overbearing and unnecessarily strict. The parent involvement, however, was outstanding.

My daughter started DeWitt during highschool as a result of our move. She thought her classes as a whole were much easier than the highschool in Middleville she came from. My son has attended DeWitt since grade school and due to a job change attended Hudsonville school for half of a year two years ago then back to DeWitt for a year. Now we are in Troy School district. Each time he left DeWitt he had to 'catch up' to the students at the new school. This meant hours at the kitchen table after school this wasn't the norm for him while at DeWitt (he rarely needed to study @ home) When he went back to DeWitt he said he felt like he was 'on vacation'. I loved the neighborhood in DeWitt and the teachers were wonderfull but the district is not keeping up with its peers

Excellent school system. Block scheduling has enabled my children more time spent in each class.

Generally a great place to have your kids. Typical bureaucracy on occasion, but ultimately there are a lot of intelligent, kind, caring people surrounding them.
