Welcome

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!

 

Update:  December 18, 2014

High school grades for the 2013-2014 school year have been released and Dixie once again had the HIGHEST total points in our school’s history, 1,007 total points as compared to 993 last year. That increase of 14 points over last year was the HIGHEST increase among all high schools.

 

Within our district

  • Dixie has had the highest increase in reading proficiency rate over the past three years (2012 – 14).
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in reading proficiency rate among African American students over the past three years (2012 – 14).
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in reading proficiency rate among Hispanic students over the past three years (2012-14).
  • And the 5th highest increase in among Hispanic students among all high schools in Florida.
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in science proficiency rate over the past three years (2012 – 14).
  • Dixie has had the second highest increase in math proficiency rate over the past three years (2012 – 14).
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in graduation rate over the past four years (2011 – 14).
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in the number of advanced tests -- AP and Cambridge AICE tests -- administered.
  • Dixie has had the highest increase in the percentage of students passing advanced tests -- AP and AICE tests.
  •  

Among all Florida schools

  • The 5th highest increase in reading proficiency among all high schools in Florida (more than 300 schools).
  • The 14th highest increase in reading in among African American students among all high schools in Florida.
  • The 5th highest increase in reading among Hispanic students among all high schools in Florida.

 

Despite that data, we earned a C grade. We were warned that this might happen because the state – again – has changed the scale to make things harder. In essence, the points we need before to get a B are now the points we need to get  C. Everything shifted down one letter. The grading scale will once again be reformulated this year, so anything could happen. The administration at Dixie, however, firmly believes we can once again achieve the B and eventually become an A school. Continued effort by our staff, administration and students, along with support from our families and community will help us achieve our goal. Thank you for all you do.
