As many students feel about high school, my experience at DHS seemed to be similar to those in the movies with many ups and downs. My grade happened to be the COVID year, so we have yet to have a normal school year. This being said, my grade has often been deemed uninvolved because we have a low percentage of students in our grade who come to school functions. While this is partly our fault, I feel it is mainly because we haven't had much to be involved in. Due to COVID, we had to step back and take many safety measures, which is very understandable. However, we have yet to gain back from all COVID taken from us. My complaint about this school is that I wish they would understand some unnecessary rules they implement from a student's perspective. Otherwise, I think this school did great at preparing me for college. I can also say that I will carry some friendships I made in high school with me for the rest of my life.
I enjoyed attending Dyersburg High School. The teachers and staff are amazing. The teachers truly have a passion for teaching and they help us every step of the way. I am grateful for all the staff and teachers that have worked closely with me and my senior classmates. Dyersburg High School does a great job giving students opportunities to learn and get help. The administrators do a phenomenal job making sure students are prepared for real life. On the downside, the school is too strict. The school does not give us much time to create bonds with our classmates or be a kid for the years we have left. Although education comes first, there are various activities that our senior class were not allowed to enjoy that other schools took part in.
For rural West Tennessee, it is a good school. The school has done a great job of implementing AP courses and advanced classes. Still more opportunities that can be out there to provide dual credit courses, which has helped students enter college with transferrables. There are quite a few extracurriculars offered such as sports and clubs like drama, yearbook, key club, etc. One thing the school is great at is the fine arts, music and theatre programs. The school is diverse in a sense based on the population there. However, more can evolve to provide inclusion for underrepresented groups. The teachers are great and the academic advising is set up so that students can plan for their careers post-graduation. With that said, this is based on the scope from having lived here, attended the school and also went to a rigorous school following my education here. This is all said with good intent to continue to challenge the school to continue to evolve.
