I have been at the Dubois Area Senior High School for all four years. My experience there with the faculty & students was excellent. My favorite thing about the school was the tailgate home games. Every time we would win, the firetrucks would sound an alarm! I also like how they make sure every student graduating will have enough experience for college. One thing I would like to see changing is the scheduling. My senior year I already took one of the half year courses my junior year. Not only that I didn't get any of my classes I choose for!

DuBois Area High School is the perfect place to go if you want average class sizes, and good teachers. My classes always had at least 25-30 students, which isn’t that bad. The teachers are all friendly and very helpful. They are willing to take time out of their day to make sure you are learning to the best of your ability. My favorite teacher will always be Mr. Martin. I was in his history class in ninth grade as well as keeping Stat’s for the girls soccer team. I got to know him as a teacher and a coach. He is always available to talk to if you need it, and will listen to what you have to say, as well as having a great personality. Sadly, he is no longer working at the high school, but he is dearly missed!
High school was an amazing experience for me. A very huge part of high school that kept me motivated was the music department. High school is only what you make of it, so if you spend your time there wishing it was over then you will miss every opportunity that comes your way. I was not involved in any sports but the games I went to was always fun to watch because the school spirit always filled every field, court, or track those players were on. I was a theater/choir student and the bond our school's music department has is like no other. I was able to participate in PMEA choir, select choir, show choir, and musicals pre-COVID. The staff at DAHS always made sure that the students got every opportunity for a good education and I am very thankful for that. To conclude this review, I would like to say my experience at DAHS was very good for the most part because of all the amazing extra curriculars and fun activities I was part of.
