Ethel Dwyer Middle School Reviews

2 reviews
The only positive thing I have to say about Dwyer is its food. The snack bar is AMAZING. Now, for everything else. In 2017, only a third of the school's students met the state requirements. Some teachers (namely Mrs. McCord) discriminate against students. Its textbooks are from 1980, its sports programs are miserable, there is a huge drugs and alcohol problem, and supervisors don't give a s--- about safety. You are judged constantly, the language alone might be rated R if in a movie, and its facilities are outdated. Basically everything about this school is a nightmare. But hey, at least there are snacks?

During my stay at Dwyer, they try to put you into classes depending on how well you did in previous classes. A good amount of clubs and activities to join. The food is better than high school sometimes. Teachers are sweet and helpful here. I loved the events at Dwyer and the dances are okay, nothing special.
