Louis E. Dieruff High School Reviews

Louis E. Dieruff High School is a good school to go to. We are known to be academically stronger than our rival school William Allen High School. They have the resources to aid a student who is struggling financially make their way to college. They offer Dual Enrollment, fee waivers for the SAT, ACT, and a decent selection of AP classes. Your chances of being injured in this school are slim to non as long as you are somewhat behaved and don't start any fights. College preparedness is somewhat decent, but real life preparedness needs work. It is mainly up to your family to prepare you for real life, which is not a resource everyone in the school has.

Dieruff have a very diverse amount of students who connect with the school through sports and clubs as such but it would be a very good thing if the teachers got more involved with the students past teaching and scolding, it would be a great help if the teachers got to connect with the students and don’t just let them give up on a future they have in their grasp. Many more students wouldn’t drop out or give up on college if the teachers helped give motivation to them and helped construct their future.
I like how great some of the clubs are!
I would change most of the staff. I also really loved the guidance department, they were always there and so helpful with anything that I needed help with.
