Dripping Springs Independent School District Reviews

I've really enjoyed my high school experience so far. I attended DSMS starting in 6th grade. I like that we only have one middle school and one high school, however that will change next year because they are adding another middle school. Our school district feels like a small town even though our high school has 1500 students. The community is very involved in the school activities. For example, the football games are a big event! It seems like the whole town comes out to cheer DSHS on.

Growing up in Dripping Springs, I have always been apart of the Dripping Springs Independent School District. My experience with attending this school district for 12 years was amazing. Now as I move on to college I feel fully prepared to take on anything it throws at me!
Best school district in the Austin area! Hard working and caring teachers who push our students to be their best selves while truly figuring out each child's learning style and helping them succeed. What more could you ask for?!
