Dillard High School Reviews

407 reviews

I liked that the school offered courses that helped me decide on what I wanted to do later on in life.(Video Editing) However out side of that the school experience was relatively average nothing crazy exciting happened, there were barley any field trips for normal classes like a trip to the museum for history class. It was like the school only did special things for its performing arts side rather than the technical side. And the kids there were normal high school kids a little more high school fights than average but it wasn't anything too crazy. The teachers there were good but, some of them couldn't teach for the life of them. The friends I made there was my saving grace however, those guys are great & now that I've left I know that we'll stay close together and never forget all those funny memories we made at that place. Overall my school experience was nothing short of average & sometimes hellish but my friends and the memories I made with them made up for the time I spend there

Dillard has a great performing arts program where it allows students to be very creative and let them pursue the career of either being a full-time musician, professional dancer, or even an actor/actress. The performing arts programs gave opportunities to students to travel and performing in other cities and states like New York, Georgia, and Indiana. Dillard High School has some of the best teachers around the campus where you can learn a lot and expand your knowledge in that subject. If there is one thing i was to see change is that the food that they served in the cafeteria.
The administration are very involved in regards to college readiness. The guidance counselors present college information to many classrooms every year and the BRACE Advisor continuously makes sure every senior has applied to at least 5 college and has applied for federal aid or scholarships. However, the school has the tendency to schedule things in-accordance to what teachers have already plan and I wish they would change that. For instance the school will plan a school-wide test retake or meeting around the time teachers are helping the students review for the upcoming mid-terms. Plus, whenever students (and I have experienced this and have been told by many that this is the case) call the office to excuse an absent, a majority of the time no one answers. I personally do not anyone who calls in anymore, they usually just wait until they come back to school to have it excused it directly.
