I have been a part of Dryden Community Schools since preschool. I have not once wanted to change schools or drop out. This school has made me who I am today, an intelligent, caring, and honest individual. Between the wonderful teachers, staff, students in this school, I could not have done it without them. The one thing I would change about Dryden Community Schools is have more class options, clubs, and sports. Overall, this school has changed my life and has made me a wonderful human being. This school is small enough to know everyone in the halls and I am thankful for that because I have so many friends here.

The school is a mediocre small town community school with a money problem. I have never been to the elementary since I started my Freshman year, but I guess it is like "Springfield Elementary" from the "Simpsons". The student body is consisted of mostly white republicans who don't care about basic societies. There is barely any funding because the school has always asked organizations for help. Students are in danger because the administration is worried more about money. Just because someone is a big fish in a small pond does not mean they are a big fish in the ocean.
Overall and excellent, small town school in a gem of a community. Teachers and staff work hard to engage with students, and there are lots of cutting edge things things in the classrooms that bigger schools can't try. My kids are very happy with their experiences here.
