    My student has been going here for the past two years and loves being here. There are no "clicks" no bullying no fighting. Everyone is equal here. They offer AB and IB classes and the teachers always want to help when they can. There is a lot of parent involement thanks to the PTO who always ask for volunteers from baking cookies to chaperones. This is a great school and great environment!

    My son has attended Dublin Scioto High School since the 9th grade. He has been challenged many times from an academic standpoint. The additional opportunities afforded him here gives him a fighting chance when he goes to college since he is a minority. If I were to say anything negative it would be the unequal treatment that children who play sports do experience from time to time. Too often I've found people miss judge him because he is a minority. Sometimes he is not treated fairly because of it. But most of the time it is the other parents and not the school that do not seem to be sensitive to their mistreatment of minorities.

    I am a graduate of Dublin Scioto High School and was challenged more at this school than I was in all 4 years of college. I was leagues ahead of my collegiete peers-- not because I'm exceptionally smart but because I was exceptionally prepared. My fondest memories include those from Dublin Scioto from their excellent honors program to their arts program and sports. Teachers were open-minded and genuinely cared. So many school cirriculums are focused solely on test scores. Dublin Scioto's staff has a unique dedication to teaching students why and how something works rather than just preaching that it does. When they put the 'why' behind concepts they engaged lifelong learners. I also really appreciate the diversity of students found at Scioto versus the other Dublin high schools-- tolerance and respect were a priority and expected. I cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience at Scioto.

    This school is awesome. The teachers take this job more personal and do one on one work with students. All the staffs are so nice and friendly.

    I have two children at Scioto High School. I don't have any complaints about the curriculum or the school in general. For the most part we have enjoyed our years at this school. Unfortunately the principle is unwilling to work with parents and becomes very defensive and impatient when suggestions on ways to help the children are suggested. In my opinion this person has no buisness working in a field that requires positive interaction with children and their parents.

    I graduated from Scioto and they had not only a great academic program but a wonderful arts program with teachers who really cared about the students' success. They also had many extra-curricular activities for students to get involved in and the student population was extremely diverse for a school in the suburbs.

    This is a great school. I'm going to be a junior at Scioto this upcoming school year and i can tell you from my experences here the last two years this is a great place to learn discover and make friends.

    I had one son graduate from Dublin Scioto and is in the Honors program in the Engineering College at Ohio State. Our other son is currently attending DSHS and participates in both academic and sports programs. They offer a wide variety of academic programs and assist in college placement and scholarship opportunities.

    A good school with quality instruction good sports and a fair arts program. Music program is overrated and more interested in awards than quality music. School tends to be more interested in making itself look good over the interests of students example pushing students to take too many AP courses.

    I think Scioto is a great school. It has wonderful teachers terrific extra-curricular activiites that any child can become involved in and competitive classes that will help them in the future be it college or another path. I'm glad both of my children will recieve their high school education there.
