Dutchtown High has the best teachers and administrators who truly care about their students. Not only do they try their hardest to educate us, but they spread positivity and happiness through the school. Through this pandemic, they have supported their seniors as best as they can by keeping distance, but still allowing for a little fun with the curbside cruise. I would not trade my school for any other and I’m very blessed to have gone to such a great school. Hopefully when I’m older, I can send my own kids to Dutchtown! They will always have my heart. It’s always a great day to be a griffin.

Dutchtown High School is the Top 10 academic school in Louisiana. The school has excellent student body that each puts in effort to achieving their goals. The teachers connect with students to help them succeed in school. They talk to their student, schedule retesting to improve sore, provide after-school tutoring, etc. Other than teachers, the faculty care for students' academics by finding ways to improve their grades. They also try understanding their students home and personal life in order to better help them.
Around campus, everybody is big sports, especially football season. Everybody tries to represent the school by wearing the spirit clothes and gear and schools colors. Some of clubs cheer our football team by posting wall poster all around. During football season, the school gets into campus spirit where each grade compete to win field day for last day of school.
I had a very memorable 4 years at Dutchtown. The teachers and faculty are very helpful and professional. There are many opportunities for students to be successful or get involved. I would definitely encourage all students join a club or sport because it will make your experience much more fun. All the students seemed pretty nice; I never witnessed or experienced bullying at Dutchtown, but it does happen on occasion. Dutchtown's faculty do a great job at keeping order and disciplining students who cause problems.
