Dinwiddie High School has been a very positive experience for me. I have been able to get involved, make friends, and have fun here, all while getting a good education. I feel like all of the teachers and staff here are well rounded people who genuinely want to see the students succeed. There are endless opportunities to get involved here with sports, clubs, and organizations. I’ve been in many of them and they have all taught me valuable life skills while having so much fun with my peers. All of the guidance counselors and advisors are really here to help the students to the best of their ability. Dinwiddie High School has a very friendly environment and I have definitely made some life long friends here. I will always support Dinwiddie High School and I am proud to say this is where I am graduating from.

I love the educators there. They are very hands on and love to have fun. They are serious about the readiness of college and will push their students. Had so much fun there. Family graduated from there as well! I currently attend Lynchburg College and I believe that this school prepared me for college! Can’t wait to go back and visit!
