Dartmouth High School is a great school with amazing teachers. The administration could be a lot better, but all other aspects are fantastic! Teachers are awesome, and the staff is very kind. There are so many courses to choose from, and this school offers so many AP courses. I would recommend attending this school.

Dartmouth High has been a great experience, the teachers really take the time to help you understand everything they teach. The clubs, sports, and extra activities are a fantastic way to make new friends and have a fun time. The entire staff is committed to making time at school as enjoyable as possible and are always there when you need to talk. The education is amazing here and sets up each student for success in college by taking the time to help students figure out the next steps they should take as a learner.
I attended Dartmouth High all 4 years, the teachers were mostly amazing I only had issues with one or two in total. I created very strong bonds with the teachers but on the other hand administration was very hard to deal with. They asked for the students opinions in surveys with pre determined choices and when new ones were brought up it was very hard to change their ideas. My guidance counselor was hard to work with and he barely helped me progressing towards college.
