I absolutely loved my four years at Dwight High School! The school is located in a tight-knit community; It includes teachers who are passionate about their students' education and well-being, and students who are motivated to strive to do the best of their ability during their time in high school.

I loved going to dwight because it was a local feel and I knew everyone. Some people might not like the small town setting but it was a very good experience for me because I liked that all the teachers knew my name, everyone was supportive of what everyone was doing with their lives because we all knew each other and people would always check in on how you are doing since you know each other so well that they knew when something was going good in your life or bad.
I liked the small feel of the school. The campus is also very well maintained. However, some of the teachers have had disciplinary problems and the staff in general is not very good.
