Dalhart High school has changed over the past 4 years I have been here. We have had many ups and downs throughout those four years. Teachers have have came and gone, even principals. I love my school very much, I mean how could I not if I spend most of my time here. I remember my freshman year, entering my school I was so scared. To me it was huge, it was like a maze. The vibe is this school when I came in was so positive. I won't say it's perfect because it is not. We have things in the school that just shouldn't be here. My last year here is going okey, maybe because i'm having senioritis and i'm always stressing or maybe it is new rules and requirements they have set. I have heard a lot of complaints of student and even teachers! I am not complaining, it is what it is. I will always remember Dalhart High school because of course this school is literally preparing me for the real world. I will miss this school.

I like Dalhart High School because the diversity there is enormous. Everyone has a place to fit in whether it is certain clubs, sports, or activities. The school makes sure everyone has a chance to be included on projects. Even with the pandemic here taking parts of my senior year away, the school goes above and beyond to give us the best ceremony they can!
Unfortunately for the past five to ten years, the school has a lot of teacher and staff turn-over, college prep has been low, and the food is not great. This year, the school district hired a new principal and a new superintendent, which has already created a better atmosphere for the students. The lunch food has improved, as well as the attitudes of both students and teachers. Merely based off of how the 2018-2019 year started off, I believe that better days are in store for the high school and district. The next generation of students will hopefully be far more prepared for college and will enjoy their high school years more due to the improved atmosphere of the school.
