Duneland School Corporation Reviews

I would like to see more guidance involvement when it comes to choosing a college and planning your high school career. Many students here have poor attitudes and staff do not do enough to correct the behavior. The school only started taking bullying seriously when I was in 8th grade, and even then I feel like they had favorites forcwhich kids to help. Academics here help with college readiness, but the science department needs help, specifically chemistry.

The teachers not only encourage their students to succeed, they allow their students to cultivate goals, ideas, and talents. Everyone from the janitor staff to the assistant principals provide support and warm/personable interactions.
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.
