Overall, my experience with Dacula High School was very good. I enjoyed my fellow students and the way we were friendly toward one another. The teachers were very nice and cared about your performance. I enjoyed participating in extracurricular activities such as track and field, cross country, and the orchestra. I liked Digital Days where we had the option of staying at home and completing our work online approximately 7 days throughout the school year. I wish Digital Days happened more!

Dacula High School is one of the oldest high schools in the district with fewer resources. Despite this fact, it is one the more cohesive and supportive communities in the district, hands down. We have experienced several student deaths in the past three years, staff illnesses, academic and athletic setbacks. In spite of every obstacle that we've faced, we have managed to come together, push through and win! I am forever proud to be a part of the Dacula High School community.
Dacula high school is one of the very best schools In Gwinnett County. Going to school everyday makes you feel like you have a second home. The staff at Dacula are kind, thoughtful, honest, and respect you in every way, shape, or form. They provide all the help they can possibly give to all students at Dacula. The learning environment at Dacula is wonderful. The teachers give you plenty of time in class to complete work and they teach wonderfully. Not only is the learning environment great, but Dacula gives you plenty opportunities to socialize with friends including 50 minutes lunches, 7 minute transitions, sporting events, and great pep rallies! Dacula is the type of school any student would want to go too and makes you feel as though it's not as much of a "school" as it is a home for people to learn.
