From my short visit at Dardanelle High School, I can say it was pretty fun. Dardanelle High School is full of many of good people. The academics are above average and require a lot of critical thinking. The food is below mediocre. The teachers are great and know what they are doing when teaching. They give great one on one time in the classroom to help the students with whatever they need. You actually need to study for tests, there's really no such thing as winging it there. Overall, it is a great high school and I am absolutely grateful of all the people I met there and truly thank the teachers for giving me such a great education and prepping me for college!

Dardanelle High is, in a summary, pretty average. There isn't nessecarily anything extraordinary about DHS, but I can say that a lot of the staff & administration are wonderful, dedicated people who are doing their best to make this school the best it can be, especially the new administration we have gotten in recent years. Although DHS has it's rough spots, it offers a challenging & amazing curriculum and a wider range of classes than ever before in it's history. DHS's notable programs are it's sports, band, FCLA/FBA, debate, & BETA. Events like school spirit rallies have been at their all-time high as well. Although DHS is seemingly average, it is genuinely a solid place to choose for your schooling & it seems like it will only go up from here.
