Sports is king at this school. Failing all your classes? Don't worry. As long as you're on the football team, you'll be fine. The academics come second to athletics. With only one or two AP classes, you practically have to get perfect grades in every class you take in order to even have a chance of getting into top ranked universities. The teachers try their best, but they are below-standard. The lack of funding for supplies and equipment required for basic teaching really affects the teaching ability. College readiness is absolutely horrible. From day one, counselors don't even make the attempt to instill confidence in students that they'll make it into good colleges. The counselors basically make it seem impossible to go to college outside of South Carolina. Names of colleges outside of the Carolinas will never be uttered from the counselors mouths if students don't bring them up.

Overall the school is decent and the students are nice and attentive, but sports are valued and held up to a higher standard than academics.
I love the diversity at the school and the interaction between teachers and students. Dillon High School is mostly known for its athletics but this overshadows the great teachers behind athletes. Without the teachers we would have no athletes. Our coaches are phenomenal teachers both on and off the field and court.
