  • My child enjoyed DHS as much as I did. He was accepted to UF and was well prepared.

  • PARENTS ARE THE LEADING EXAMPLES OF THEIR CHILDREN...NOT JUST THE SCHOOLS...IF YOU HAVE A GOOD HOME/FAMILY LIFE, YOUR CHILD WILL PROSPER IN ANY SCHOOL'S "PEER PRESSURE OBSTACLES"..OR.."A TEACHER HAVING A BAD DAY"--OR A FAILING TEST GRADE"--PARENTS!! STOP COMPLAINING AND SPEND TIME WITH YOUR CHILDREN, & THEY WILL "DO THE RIGHT THING" AND NOT QUIT OR COMPLAIN,,OR DO DRUGS, ETC..DO I HEAR ANYONE AGREEING WITH ME HERE/--MY SON GRADUATED A FEW YEARS AGO, DIDN'T KNOW ANYONE HERE, CAME AS A FRESHMEN, WE MOVED A DOZEN TIMES AND HE STILLED PULLED THROUGH, & THAT IS WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT.

  • Do not know about now (2009), but back in 1985 when I was there most of the teachers including the administration was nothing more than a bunch of low life bottom feeders. One child even committed suicide as a result. Things may have changed but due to my personal experience and first hand knowledge I would never allow my child to attend school there. Private school or home school where the child would actually have a chance to learn something.

    The vice principal back in the day actually had the gaul to tell my parents that some kids just are not college material and I was definitely one of those kids.

    I later quit school later that year due to the pressure and harassment from the faculty and administration. I moved out of State and 3 months later got my G.E.D. Shortly thereafter I enrolled in college and graduated with a 3.9GPA.

    I have nothing good to say about DHS. Absolutely nothing.

    And to rebut another comment - Back in 85 there WERE drugs in that school. I knew the kids that were dealing but never said anything in fear of reprisal either from the kids -or- from the faculty (or both) if a search turned up nothing.

  • This school maybe dirty, but the staff is extremely nice and there is no soap in the bathroom because of other students, so there's no one to blame but your fellow classmates. I love this school. We may not get as much as other schools but everyone is so down to earth here because we are located in the most country part of Dunnellon. I get straight A's here and there is nothing wrong with the teachers. I was a West Port student and half of my teachers had no idea what they were talking about and I made good grades their too. I saw drugs/"gangs" all over the place there. (So do not blame the school on your child. It's not their fault it is your kid's fault for not paying attention in class.) Their reputation really says everything about that school. Compared to Dunnellon, West Port maybe nicer and cleaner, but it does not mean it's a good school.
