Dunlap High School Reviews
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.
DHS is a great school that not only prepares you for success in high school, but success for college and adulthood, which is truly a special thing. It is an amazing school that anyone can feel welcome at, which most schools are not able to say. At our school, no one feels as if they are a “minority,” as we all feel that we belong to the school and that is our identity. We have great sporting programs with numerous state championships and appearances in the past couple of years, amazing academic courses that challenge you greatly but are worth it, and a culture that is unlike any other school. At DHS, we set our own standards, live up to them, and watch surrounding schools try to do the same (with our standards, of course).
Dunlap High School leaves me with a mostly good impression. Activities create room for involvement with the community. Staff are accepting of religious beliefs; students can leave during class for them if needed. My school is anti-drug; clubs deter poor choices and offer alternatives. Many advances have been made for education and positive roles. Yet, I think it needs improvement. While there are resources offered for college, I feel that our school could use better timing and availability of them. There are also issues with accessibility. Having a friend with EDS and other diagnoses, I had to witness their troubles in getting around school. Elevators, for students who need them, will still be used, preventing my friend from using them and causing tardiness to class. Some of the ramps in our school are too steep. They were unable to sit with the student body in our auditorium for a guest speaker; the ramp leading downward makes it impossible to reach the seating area.
