  • I hated this school.
    I went to this high school from 9th grade to the start of 10th.
    At Dallas Center Grimes you have to fit in to be liked or treated right,.
    Now don't get me wrong there are some people there that are not like that.
    But there is a huge bulling problem at the school and I don't really think the teachers do jack about it.
    I felt like if you were not in sports or a kiss a** that you got treated different.
    And that is not right.
    all I know is that I hated that school and would not let my kids go there.
