They provide many opportunities for such a small public school. Some teachers are closed minded and have strong personal opinions, yet if you show a genuine interest to succeed then most will assure that you do so. Office staff and cafeteria staff stand out due to their dedication and passion for working with children. The ed techs are amazing. Jason Long has been an exceptional addition to the school. His determination and lengths he has gone to to insure the success of his pupils is astonishing. The food is decent but the cafeteria staff will always leaving you laughing. Due to the small town, many people are closed minded and clique-like. Although there are some who are very excepting, much like every high school. The area is very beautiful with much to do. Sports are a large factor for this high school, they are very established and successful. The janitors are very friendly, the school is very clean.

This is a small town school built on the foundation of a family-friendly community, and it shows. It has been the best to grow and prosper with the help of an entire community behind you.
Dirigo High School gave me enough knowledge to get to college, but there could have been more AP courses to offer an early college experience as well as allow students to receive college credit early.
