I attended Dutchtown since the ninth grade, and I've always felt safe there. They have provided me with the resources I needed to improve myself, including speech classes. The teachers are helpful and invested in students' learning. There is a large library and computer center, and a student services for students to talk to counselors. They have a very large cafeteria, with the three consistent meals offered being pizza, chicken sandwiches, and hamburgers. There are a variety of clubs and sports teams, from gaming club to Spanish club and track to football. There is something for everyone here.

At Dutchtown , it's like everyone is welcome ! No discrimination, no segregation, no Griffin left behind! There are times where a challenge comes but these teachers are more than welcome to help you with them. Dutchtown is also very disciplined !
Dutchtown High School offers exceptional education to its students in many ways. The school offers Advanced Placement and Dual-Enrollment courses, which can potentially earn college credit. Dutchtown also offers exceptional career readiness to their seniors for the push toward a successful future. They offer ACT prep courses and Work Keys tests that ensure that students pursue a career that will ultimately grant them success. The overall high school experience and student life at Dutchtown High is satisfactory, but truthfully school spirit could be raised higher.
