Dalton High School is a very nice school! Newly renovated, also! Dalton's Sports Teams tend to rank with, and play against teams from/around Atlanta, GA. Dalton is a small community, and is very diverse! The teachers here are spectacular! The facilities are clean and always equipped with the best technology for the students to use! Every student gets a laptop to take home for the year to use on homework and projects, although it does block some sites and areas, you can still use it for other stuff too! Dalton High was is a very, very safe place, They are located only minutes from the Dalton Police department and we always have a Deputy on site. Dalton is very well known for their sports and their extra curricular. I personally was a swimmer, and was In Dalton's chorus program. Their programs are amazing and there are many many people that graduate from Dalton and move on to vigorous arts and sports involved schools. As a student I really enjoyed my time here.

I completely loved my experience at Dalton High School! The teachers and staff are very nice and attentive. Every teacher find a way to make their class entertaining, unique and fun. I enjoyed every second of high school. If you go and study in Dalton High School, you will make beautiful memories that will last forever!
In my 3 years attending Dalton High School, I learned to be more mature, responsible, resourceful, time manageable, dependable, hardworking, aware of my future, and after experiencing many different scenarios, I transitioned from a teenager, into a young adult. I was able to take classes that I enjoy such as Army JROTC, and I became more aware of how my actions will affect my future. Lastly, thanks to JROTC, I also learned how to be a leader, and that there are always better options in life and to have high standards and expectations and never settle for anything less.
