Dillard high school opened the doors to a more interactive community. There are various clubs, after-school programs, and activities for interests of all kinds. Having a wider campus can be an advantage; there are more classrooms, and there is a special building for the Performing Arts department. There is a mixing room with a recording studio, and they also have a robotics team. ROTC students are dedicated, and the Panthers Marching Band is a force to be reckoned with, accompanied by the DC dancers, majorettes, and flag girls. Dillard is a great school that encourages it's students to be creative, intuitive, and active.

My experience at Dillard High school has been interesting, beneficial, fun, and occasionally sad. I've been attending Dillard for three years now and since I started the school has lost many good students to shootings, hit and runs, and gang violence. Although the neighborhood seems to be not the best the people who live there are amazing and extremely nice. The school in general cares about its students and specifically their safety. Between the two huge magnet programs and the general classes safety is a number one priority. All the teachers are loving and always put the students health first. Through all the dark times Dillard has gone through the community has stuck together.
Dillard High School is rich in culture and history. Dillard High School is the Home of the Mighty Panthers. We have a wonderful principal, dedicated staff, and the most gifted, talented, exceptional students!
