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!
Dinwiddie High School is a wonderful school. The environment is good, they have many good sports team. The most popular being the football team. The teachers don't really care about the students. They don't care if you pass or fail which is why most students don't pass their sol tests. I had a very good experience at DHS for the most part all of my teachers were good except for a few. They have a lot of interesting clubs, my favorite was DECA. The resource officer at the school is good. Safety for the most part isn't really an issue. The cafeteria food is okay, it could be A LOT better. Administration is good. Guidance counselors want the best for students and they want to see students become successful, they really care. The teachers try to prepare students for college, but the information really isn't helpful at all. Overall, I would recommend DHS to families looking for a good school for students.
