  • I did not give the previous statement a 5/5 rating. That was some mistake. I give it 1/5 but it really doesn't even deserve that.

  • I would not recommend anyone send their child to DTHS. As a former employee, I witnessed first hand how shady faculty and administration can be. For the past four years Dwight has had a total incompetent Principal. The only good thing is that he is now leaving so hopefully they will get someone in their who knows what he is doing. While I was their I was constantly being back-stabbed by a colleague and the Principal did nothing about it. The atmosphere is horrible and the curriculum is a joke. I was fortunate to find a much better job and get out of that horrible place!
