Dansville has great teachers. It is a small school with lots of opportunities to learn new things. With less that 150 students in graduating class it is easy to know everyone and make great friendships that hopefully will last a lifetime. I played varsity sports; soccer, track, and swimming from 9th through 12th grade. The coaches were awesome, the teams were like family.

Dansville High School, is a great school to be in when you've grown up in town and had many generations go to the same school. The staff is friendly, the students are mostly respectful, and people care about others well beings. Nothing about this school should change.
The teachers at Dansville are incredible and very experienced. They always make time for their students and Dansville feels like home for many. Dansville is a very close knit community with interpersonal relations. All members in the community look to the future by constantly contributing to make the school a better place.
