I have been offered many opportunities to help get the high school experience I want. I was able to start a club and create lots of student involvement. I also love the classroom environment especially in the honors or Ap classes, everyone is trying there best and is willing to help those that are struggling. The teachers are passionate about their work and love what they do, my only complaint is with how little involvement the administration has. I feel like they don’t know anything about any of the students who aren’t top athletes. I understand their job is a huge time commitment but I personally would like to see them build more connections with the students.

It was good. I played on the football team in 2017 and the atmosphere was amazing. The schooling was great, the teachers were fun and made it exiting. The other students had a lot of school spirit and the most of the parents were involved in some kind of way, mine were not but they were part of the minority there. I have no really feelings on the music and arts at Dunlap because I have no first hand knowledge of them, but I have only heard great things. Although the band took over our football field one day so we had to practice on uneven terrain right after it rained and one of our wide receivers hurt himself and was out for his whole senior year that we went to state. So I have mixed feelings about them.
Over the three years that I have attended Dunlap High School, I have learned to love my school. My school offers many great opportunities for academics, sports, clubs, and much more. There is always something to be involved in, no matter what kind of personality the students here have. When I compare Dunlap to the other high schools in my area, I feel beyond grateful to attend the school that I do. Other schools don’t appear to be as inclusive and interactive as Dunlap. Each class is a challenge, but they are preparing me for my future. I feel as if I have thrived here at Dunlap.
