Dumas High School Reviews

The whole four years I attended Dumas High school were probably the best four years I've ever had. This school goes to the extreme to see us succeed and that is what's great about this school. The teachers aren't just there to teach, they know how it is and they care for you like you are their own child. They would do anything for you. Everyone including the teachers, counselors, Principles, and even the students care for one another and help each other up when they are down. What I would like to see change about this school is how some of the teachers prepare us for the future. I want to see more kids knowing how to file taxes or write checks and learn how to do everyday things that you do in life. But I will never forget those amazing four years at Dumas High school.
Dumas High School is one of the best schools to go to. Everyone knows how to behave and we all love setting goals. The teachers are all magnificent and love their jobs, it is the perfect learning environment. We have recently upgraded our learning with adding more technology which has significantly helped multiple students. I would like to see more involvement in more students in the future.
The teachers at Dumas High School do more than they have to for their students around the school. They make learning fun and let students know they are allowed to be helped at certain times if they are struggling with a lesson. The teachers and staff let the students feel safe and respect their choices to a certain standard. The staff at Dumas High School is great!
