When I first moved to Greensboro, NC four years ago I didn’t want any parts in Dudley and wanted no more than to go to Grimsley. Now I wouldn’t have it any other way and love my HBHS. Overall just about every teacher I’ve encountered has done their purpose and I can truly say even though I don’t retain any of the information the teachers have did an impeccable job teaching me on a level of good understanding. I can now leave high school with those memories of those teachers who have done a job well done. Through Dudley I’ve found a new creative mindset while being editor of this years 2020 yearbook and the discovery of Weaver Academy which added to my overall experience in high school. Weaver has giving me the lifelong hopes to one day do something related to culinary arts. As always it’s Panthertime in Pantherland!

The Great James B Dudley High School has provided me with some of the best opportunities as well as memorable times of my life. As a member of the Early College Academy, Marching Band, Softball/Track Team, College Ambassadors Club, SGA, and more... I have had an unlimited amount of resources to ensure that succeed in school, in college and most importantly in the future as an adult in the real world. Everyone from janitors to administrators wants to see every last one of the students succeed. I couldn't be more grateful for the culture and lifestyle granted by my panther family!
James B Dudley High School is a High School that promotes the rich legacy of the school and knows how to continuously upkeep the tradition that they have done since 1929 when it was founded. Dudley High School promotes students being Determined, Honorable and Successful in everything they do. As well, they promote a wonderful environment for students,staff and parents. May there always be a Dudley High! I enjoy attending the Great James Benson Dudley High School.
