Open Quote Dexter High School makes your upper level learning environment fun and friendly, while still giving students the education they need and more. By far my best school experience, with GPA averages through the roof and full of excellent students and friends. Close Quote

Open Quote If you want your kid to be a unique person with their own ideas and a value for nonconformity, stay away from DHS. People in Dxter are turned into clones by the time they reach the high school. I started as a freshman there after going to an Ann Arbor school all my life, and caouldn't believe how everyone one there is the same person over and over again. FOR THE SAKE OF BEING DIFFERENT, STAY AWAY FROM DEXTER SCHOOLS. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
