Dixie continues to be the best school in St. George. Teachers are great, test scores are tops in the district. Two of my children have attended and both had excellent experiences. I highly recommend Dixie.

Dixie High School is by far the best high school in St. George! Dixie has great kids and great extra curricular programs. The students in Dixie are down to earth unlike alot of the students in the other schools and they all get along great. Dixie has a new school which adds to the greatness of the school. I highly recommend that you enroll your children in Dixie. I love Dixie and am proud to be a Dixie Flyer!

Dixie has a strong commitment to academic excellence. The teachers are dedicated and caring overall. There is a good AP program and many choices of classes for students to take in many subject areas. Class sizes are incredibly large and, as everywhere in Utah, underfunded. Parents have many opportunities to be involved, if they wish.

Old fashioned solid education. There are many bright stars in the the Dixie High carriculum from its extraordinary performing arts program to its knowledgeable teachers and caring administration,Dixie fulfilled my every expectation. I can't imagine having sent my child to a better school.

This was most likely the worst school that i have ever seen or heard of. This school is a disgrace to public education.
