Welcome to Dixie M. Hollins High School in Pinellas County, Florida. We're on Florida's west coast and we border both St. Petersburg to our south and Kenneth City and Pinellas Park to our east and north. A few years ago, a student told the principal that he thought Dixie was the "Greatest School on Earth." What a great compliment! And we couldn't agree more!
We are a proud and confident school. A school that cares about its students, families and teachers and that tries to create a place where learning is both rigorous and engaging, where creativity and the arts come through in everything we do, where all kids feel welcome and valued and where instructional innovation is our way of work.
We hope you visit our campus sometime to find out what a special place this school is. Oh, and don't tell anyone. We would prefer to keep this place our little secret.
Dr. Daniel Evans, principal of Dixie Hollins High School, was recently awarded Principal of the Year for Pinellas County. This award was quickly followed by a Certificate of Appreciation from Kenneth City Town Council. Kenneth City councilmember Carl Troup, a Dixie alum who has maintained ties to the school, recommended the honor.
Congratulations to Meridian Jenkins and James Ford who placed in The Great Debate. This is a Lincoln - Douglass style debate judged by members of the Pinellas Bar Association. The final debate will be held in front of three sitting Pinellas Court Judges on Tuesday, April 21st.
