I will never recommend DHS to anyone. My son was a great student at SHS but upon his tranfer to DHS is grade stunk. I there was no counselor involvement. When he did poorly, for example, a math he chose that he was doing extremely poorly (getting in the 60's, his former school a 64 was failing) he ...  Read more

As a recent graduate of Dallastown (Class of 2013), I am very grateful for how Dallastown prepared me for college. I am excelling in my college courses due to the careful preparation of teachers and staff. I did not appreciate the education I received while I was there, but it is evident to me now that ...  Read more

I am currently a sophomore at dallastown and I am beyond impressed with the abundance of academic opportunities, the extracurriculars, and the eager to teach teachers.

As a student of DAHS, I often find that this school is "over-hyped". Honestly, Dallastown is a great school in that they are always willing to help students plan for their future. The school is constantly helping the students plan for future jobs, and plan for college. Honors, AP, and Dual Enrollment ...  Read more

Great school. One of the best science programs around to complement much honor in every other subject. As a graduate, I excel in college better than many others from other high schools. I am proud to have been a wildcat.

There is a variety of classes offered, allowing some freedom of choice. Each department is strong, including the art, music, and language depatments. ...  Read more

Our son transferred to Dallastown HS in 9th grade from a local private, smaller school. The transition was very much better than anticipated. All our hopes for more opportunities and class choices were met. The teachers are fabulous, some a better match than others, as one would expect. But all of ...  Read more

As a parent of one student who graduated DAHS, and two that were in DAHS I must say it was a struggle. Volunteering several times, I witnessed 'control, power hungry' teachers, who screamed for no reason at students. Sports? Forget about it. If you are new, out of the area, your child doesn't have ...  Read more
