Dale County High School Reviews

While my time at this school has been good for a good part of my high school career, the school does have a bullying problem that I have personally been affected by. I have not seen many teachers stop other students being bullied. The school also needs to use more of its funds for the classroom technology and books instead of spending it on the sports teams. In the food at school I have found hair and when the cafetiere runs out the lunch room ladies are very resistance when it comes to making more for the students who have not ate. The milk has been expired on multiple occasions ans has made my friends and I sick. I would attend Dale county again if these problems were fixed.

I had a great time here. I genuinely loved it and I will miss it. The staff is great, I consider some of the teachers mentors, and great role models. There's a great spirit in this school.
It's a very great school! I love the band mostly!! I would love for the time for lunch to extend, the students would like to socialize with their friends after they eat a little bit longer, and I don't see a problem with that.
