Dryden High School taught me so much throughout the years. Between being involved in the great sports to the teachers, I would not be where I am today without it all. I think I would like to see more classes about the real world so that it will help prepare kids in the future. I think they should teach students about taxes, paying bills, how to change a tire, newer issues in the world instead of the history of it. There is just so much I did not learn in high school that I feel would benefit me more now that I am a recently graduated student.

I have been going to Dryden Community Schools my entire schooling career. Although the small town feel can be comforting at times because everyone knows you, it can also be a bad thing because everyone (even the parents) get in your business because there is nothing better to do in this small town. A lot of the staff is very helpful which is always a nice thing. The sports facility's are all high quality.
I liked that it was small and personal but some programs, like math, could be improved. The teachers cared about the students successes and because the classes were so small it was easier to learn. Some of the faculty are too hard though and cause a lot of students to not like the school overall.
