I liked the teachers, administration, and school safety I had while I was there. Individuals should send their children to Dutch Fork to receive one of the best educational experiences that the state of South Carolina can provide. Dutch Fork also has an amazing football team, inclusive clubs, and positive school spirit. I highly recommend it!

I went to Dutch Fork for four consecutive years and my overall experience there was outstanding. For the most part, the teachers and staff are extremely caring and helpful, especially during the pandemic. There's plenty of clubs and organizations to join, it is nearly impossible to feel left out. All schools have their own issues, but overall Dutch Fork is a great school!
I graduated from here this past spring and let me just say, I LOVED Dutch Fork. I think it just has a great vibe and you can feel the positive energy radiating throughout the school. The teachers are great, you feel like you are actually learning something, and now being in college, I feel that the school really prepared me well. We love our sports and we are pretty good in them (especially football). The location is in a great, safe, family-friendly area and I am just so proud to be a DF alum!
