  • This is truly a great school. It might be a smaller school however, it really strives for excellence. The teachers and staff are wonderful. The Football coach is an outstanding leader!

  • I think that overall it's not a GREAT school but not a bad school either. I attended Southdale Middle for one year and moved on to Dale County High School for 2 years- moving from schools to schools. I have been to 11 schools in many different states and the main thing I've noticed that others have that DC doesn't, is opportunities. They don't offer the various clubs, sports, and classes available as other schools. That would be a good thing to improve on in the future.

  • I enjoy attending DCHS. We have good teachers, who try to show us exactly how to do whatever it is we are doing and if we don't know how they teach us how to do it. This school is a lot of fun to go to and it rewards us for having good behavior which is most the time

  • I really enjoyed my high school years at DCHS. The teachers, coaches and staff were the best. They provided a comfortable atmosphere conducive to learning and helping students with career choices. I will never forget my time there and I am greatful for all that it provided to me in my life.
