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!

My experience at Dysart High School has been a roller coaster of stress and fun. Throughout my high school years, I enjoyed my sophomore year because of the school spirit, I had a lot of fun my junior year with academics, but out of all my four high school years, I was in love with my senior as it is still continuing. My senior of high school is my favorite because I played a different position in volleyball for my second year of being accepted on to Varsity. I played the position, Libero, for the first time in an actual school season. Academics here for senior year is stressful but I do not mind because it has helped me progressively, especially in English. I am upset to leave this year, but I loved high school with all my heart. Now, it is time for college at Ottawa University!
Dysart High School, home to the demons! Going to this school from start to finish was an experience. By the end you knew every person within your graduating class not because they were small classes but because it was just a close nit school. The school has a reputation of fighting and pregnant teenagers and while I was there I rarely seen both. School pride declined from freshman to sophomore year, but from what I have heard they are trying out different events to boost school pride. As long as you are in a good group at any school you will thrive. One thing I would definitely change is the food.
