Dyer County School District Reviews

I am a senior at Dyer county Highschool and have gone here for almost 4 years. We have some incredible programs here that can provide many opportunities you couldn't find at other high schools around the district. Although, this heavily depends on what you're interested in. If you love agriscience or any sort of sport (especially cheerleading) this is the school for you. But if you like things like theater or visual art, you may find opportunities and clubs a little lacking. Our academics strongly depend on whatever teacher that you get and cant be fairly judged overall. We have little to no diversity, and our food is pretty horrible like just about every highschool.

Dyer County High School has been a very pleasant experience for me. I have met many wonderful people here. The teachers are awesome. We do a lot of hands on learning here at Dyer County, and it has provided me with many useful opportunities. We are a 5 star school.. Our administrators/teachers focus on preparing us for college. The teachers here do NOT waste our time with busy work. AND as far as I have seen, the students here at Dyer county are well rounded in regards of academic success and discipline.
All of the schools are safe (most with full time SROs). You feel that the teachers genuinely care about you and your future, as they realize that the students they teach are members of our community and are our future leaders. The district invests money into their students, such as providing Chromebooks for students. The only drawback is, as a small district, they have limited funds to provide opportunities that a bigger and better funded district may be able to offer.
