Dinwiddie County Public Schools Reviews

Dinwiddie High School is a rather large school with approximately 1,400 students. Despite that large number, every student is a part of a southern, caring community. This school does not have many fights and has little to no bullying. Our School spirit is remarkable especially when it comes to football and other sports; stands are packed, concessions sell out, and the crowd is flooded with students and community members wearing school colors. The teachers truly care for student's success regardless of if they know them. I personally can say that I feel safe here, which says a lot especially considering high school safety concerns these days.

Dinwiddie County Public Schools have prepared me for my college career. The teachers are caring and will go above and beyond to help you. My elementary school is a Blue Ribbon National Award Winning school. The teachers there are beyond dedicated, knowledgeable, and caring. Midway Elementary prepared me for Dinwiddie Middle school. Taking honors classes in the middle school prepared me for the dual enrollment and advanced placement courses at Dinwiddie High school. Through the use of ample technology resources, I feel prepared for my future once I graduate. Dinwiddie County Public Schools is a step above in helping their students become life long learners.
Dinwiddie has a broad spectrum of classes that help develop students. The classes have helped me establish what I want to do for a career. Without these classes, I would be lost in college. Also, the diversity of the school brings everyone together in unexpected ways. Teachers, students, and staff have developed the way that schools should be. Dinwiddie has been through many obstacles but still exceedingly goes beyond the expected.
