I've been nothing but happy with the education that I've recieved from Dardanelle High School. My peers and I often find ourselves discussing all of the blessings that Dardanelle has had for us. The clubs, sports, extra-curricular, and after school enrichment programs are very, very good and important to us. We're able to be in multiple programs at once which benefits us as well as our college applications. Dardanelle has given me the opportunity to live up to my full potential. Every teacher and administrator would happily do whatever is needed to ensure that each student is able to be their best self.
Review Dardanelle High School
I have had a great experience at my high school. My favorite activuty, the Speech and Debate club, is available and the school is very understanding of the heavy load that being on the team requires. My favorite part of high school was going to tournaments and being able to perform on stage. Not only was I able to enjoy being on the debate team, but I was also able to be a part of the marching band and cheerleading. It is because the school is lenient in their schedules that I was able to be a part of all the activities that I love. I realize that many schools don't allow students to be in more than one activity, especially not band and cheerleading together, so I really appreciate that my high school didn't stop me from joining all the clubs I wanted to be in. Instead they encouraged me and helped me to feel more comfortable with my environment.
What I like about Dardanelle High school is the education is great, the organization's are amazing. We are a very safe school, and people are so friendly. The teachers are great and the student body is great. I just love it.
