Duneland School Corporation Reviews

3 reviews
I feel the academic program is excellent and all of my teachers in high school have been extremely helpful and want to see me succeed. The principal and vice principal at the middle school were terribly rude and didn't involve themselves with the students at all unless they felt they were supreme athletes. The middle school is totally biased and I feel that is wrong for children especially at that age. However, in intermediate, elementary, and high school it has been very interesting for me so far.
Review Duneland School Corporation
My experience with Duneland Schools was always positive. The academics were excellent, as I was always being challenged and learning a lot in my classes. My only complaint has to be the english preparation, and athletics.
The food has gone down in the last few years but overall my experience in the dune land corporation has been very pleasant. More AP courses should be available and dual credit courses being able to transfer to any state or college would be much more helpful.
