    As a student of DHS I can tell you that this school is an amazing small school with alot of heart. The teachers and staff are extremely caring and fun as long as a student is understanding that school is school not free play time. Since it's a small school the teachers and staff can actually create a bond with the students and know all their names. This school is so fun and has helped me through alot! Respect and you'll be respected. This glorious school has given me the most amazing school experience and I'll forever be a Tiger! So as long as students and parents understand that their student is no more special than the next and rules are rules your life at Dunnellon will be great! <3

    Dunnellon High is a pathetic excuse as a school. The faculty doesn't care about the students education nor the fact that the staff is very unfair. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone only thing they have to offer is a diploma with your name on it and you will be lucky if you even get that!

    This school does not even deserve 1 star. The dean Mrs. Murphy- humiliates and harasses the children; she is very unprofessional and is probably an ex prison guard. The school is filthy. I was warned by guidance not to send my child here but had no choice. My child who is straight A's for 10 years has threatened to quit school if I make him go next year. He will be transferred to a real school with a qualified staff

    The staff in this school are rude and very lazy although there are a few good teachers here. Like several parents that I have talked with I withdrew my son from here and placed him into Westport where he is much happier.

    Our family could not be happier with the quality of education provided by DHS in the caring nurturing environment that exists at this community school. Our children have been well prepared to compete academically at the next level.

    As a parent of two DHS students I am extremely pleased with the overall quality of the school. The teachers are caring and willing to go above and beyond to assist students when needed. I have seen many teachers offering before or after-school tutoring. The administration is supportive of students and has set high expectations for student achievement and behavior. They have implemented many new programs that benefit a majority of the students. Their out-reach program to the Marion Oaks community is exceptional amd they have a large number of honors and AP courses available to challenge and stimulate learning. I could not be more pleased with a school. They have truly assisted in preparing my children for their future.

    This was the school showing the most improvement in FL for 2005-2006. The principal under which this improvement occurred retired and the 1st year under the new principal the schools academic rating fell drastically. The Principal Leadership under the current administration is questionable. however the faculty that I have had experience with have by and large been admirable both in their comand of their field and their attitude toward the students. There is a communication gap with parents and the teacher web pages that should go to close this gap are woefully under utilized. All in all this school has been a good experienc for my daushter even though it would not have been my first choise for a school.

    this shcool is very small and seemingly will rarely find a teacher here actually concerned with wether you pass or fail.not only are most of them absurdly strict for no apparent reason but dont do anything about the REAL problems.

  • (6 years ago)

    this school needs more outgoing teachers and not so many rules.

  • (7 years ago)

    There are to may fites in this school and they do not do any thing about it

  • (7 years ago)

    This school is way to crowded. They need to either make it bigger or start sending students to another school.
