This is my first year attending DMS and I love it here! It's a very good school! My brother and 2 sisters have currently gone to this school and feel the same way I do about Dixie! This is the greatest school in Utah!

The 05-06 season will be my third attending Dixie Middle. I think it is the best middle school in the Washington District. I think we have great teachers and principals. The students can talk to the teachers about anything. There aren't any groups that are secluded from the other students. Everyone has a good character and interacts with others. There isn't students picking on others ever. It's a great place for students to learn and mature. Take it from someone whom has attended Dixie for two years so far, it's the right place for your child. I'm proud to say that I attend Dixie Middle!

I am an 8th grader at dixie and think that dixie is the best school. The teachers are the best here and there is no better school than this one. The school is nice because there is no bullying. The ninth graders mind their own business and the eighth graders do the same. There is no better school in the nation. With the State of Utah Winner of Best Teacher (Mrs. Cunningham) that tells a whole lot about this school.

I think this school is great! the teachers are awesome and provide a great learning enviroment I have learned alot from this school and I am glad that I can be here, I am in student council for the 9th grade right now and I think that everyone at our school has friends and there isnt just 1 group that excludes everyone, we are all friendly. if there was anything lower then exceptional about our school it would be it is old and the students dont mind to trash it but, I beleive if we all give little and pick up trash when we see it we can have the cleanest school in the district. thanks for your time -Mack 'daddy' Whitehead

I think that too many students are on the halls for one reason or another during class time, wandering or playing with other friends and no one question them of why. I think that some of the teachers in that school are not as good teachers to teach my child. I believe that things could be better if leadership in that school would be on top of things. I'm not all the time at school but the few times I've being there I see the same scenario. A concern parent.

The CRT is a standards-based testing program, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Utah.
