I attended the Dickson public school system for twelve years. I went on to college and even through grad. school, spending a total of 8 years in college. During that time, I did encounter some difficult professors and classes. However, I was just as prepared for those difficult classes as anyone, better than most. After college my wife and I moved back to the Dickson area, and placed both of our children into the system. My wife holds a Master's degree in education, and teaches for another school in the Ardmore area. We both feel that Dickson offers one of the finest educations that can be found in the public arena. My daughter graduated as valedictorian, went on to complete her college degree in biology, with a minor in chemistry in just three years. She starts graduate school this fall. Currently, my son is excelling in Dickson High School.

I attended Dickson High School for three years and I then moved to Mississippi and had no idea what I was getting into. I was in no way prepared to suceed outside of the Dickson schools I am happy to say that I am now at the top 5A school in the state of Mississippi, so I have started working my way up getting myself ready for college after my 2008 graduation. No thanks to Dickson High School.

We recently transferred our three children to Dickson and we couldn't be happier. My wife is a Dickson grad and is glad to be 'back home.' We are an educated home and we value quality education. While no school is perfect, Dickson certainly has impressed us with overall quality. As for the other reviews...I can't speak for them, but I do know that when kids fall through the cracks, parents (and students) need to take responsibility for their education. There are plenty of resources available within the school system and without it that can benefit a student who is struggling. It's up to the parent and/or student to make use of them...and not wait until it's too late. Ultimately, it's the parent's responsibility to see that their kids are educated...not the school's. Spend a year or two as a teacher or school board member and see for yourself.

I am a former graduate of Dickson High School and I would have to say that they definately failed at preparing me for college. They in no way prepared me for the rigorous classes and tests that I would come in contact with here at college. All I know is that when I have kids there will be no way that I would even consider sending them to the school. Not only did they not prepare the teachers could also be easily persuaded to give the kids a certain grade. I don't know how many different students I saw sweet talk their teacher into giving them the grade they wanted or needed.

Dickson schools have failed my child miserably. We can't move, we can't transfer her and their are no private schools at the high school level. They have so many fall through the cracks I don't understand how their could be such vast differences of opinion here.

I attended Dickson High School from 1991-1993 and now have two children that attend elementary school at Dickson as well as a wife that teaches. We are very pleased with every aspect of the school. The personal touch that every student recieves because of small class sizes is very important. The equiptment and courses are equivalent to that of any other school.
