Dysart High School is a place where stories and memories will be made. These stories and memories may differ from each individual asked on their experience. My personal experience at Dysart High School has been amazing. The diversity is one thing I absolutely love! Most of the students are extremely caring. Another plus is the teachers, they do an outstanding job and prepare us for the future. Dysart High School also has many opportunities from clubs, sports, and programs. Overall Dysart High is where the "Best Four Years" of my life will take place. 2 down, 2 to go!
Dysart High School, depending on who you ask, maybe one of the less extravagant schools of its district, but I would not have chosen anywhere else. My time representing my school in my clubs was the best I could have asked for. You have a choice to attend some of the newer, richer schools of the district, but when you walk through the older halls, hear the creaking of the quaint flimsy auditorium stage. You get a sense of home. The teachers and students treat the place like home, there are no cliques or fraternities. Fights are rare and often broken up by the administrations. Teachers are firm in their styles and are free to teach in their special ways. The common core classes are down to earth and tutoring is always available. For students with strong grit, they will find no trouble in learning the information. Overall, the school may not be known for a crazy income or having a performing arts center, but the first school of the "Dysart District" will be a home for its family.
