To be completely honest, I loved my school! Dillard High School has the best alumni staff and teachers. The teachers actually care about their students and put their all into getting their students to succeed. This school is known for its Tech program as well as their Performing Arts program. It was a pleasure to serve as a student here for 4 years.

Dillard High School has exceptional art programs, school spirit, a supportive neighborhood community, and a welcoming, uplifting attitude among many students. Unfortunately, as an urban, inner-city school with a high minority population, the school does not receive proper funding for proper supplies, teacher salaries, general maintenance, etc. Perhaps if there wasn't a bias from the racial demographics against the school from the school board, potential teachers, and other students and parents in the county, the school could truly compete with others in the area.
All four of my high school year were spent at Dillard High, and while the school remained the same, the experience of each year was quite different. It almost felt like a new place each year. With new teachers and curriculum for new classes, I could feel my life progressing, both academically and spiritually. As high school goes, there are aspects not to my liking and things I'd personally change, the school is very prideful. School spirit is plentiful at Dillard, overflowing with Panther pride, which, of course, is positive thing for students attending, thinking of attending, or have attended in the past.
