  • I, personally, would choose no where else to attend school. The Campus is beautiful. Classes are fairly small, which allows us to have a sort of relationship with our teachers. DHS offers many sports, extracurriculars, clubs, etc. I participate in many of the offered electives and clubs. Mr. Clark, our principal, is very active in our sports, academics, clubs, etc. He lets us know that he cares. True, the hallways are a little crowded, but not every high school is perfect. DHS also offers different levels of classes. This way, we get to learn more proficiently. I have lived in Demopolis for as long as I can remember. I grew up here. My older siblings attended DHS and have enjoyed it as much as I do. Overall, I would recommend DHS to anybody looking for a welcoming, safe, secure high school.

  • Demop... is a wonderful place to grow and attend school our school is known for our athletic dept... football is tremendous, baseball is great, softball awesome, basketball is top of the line, golf etc. Besides that we have some of the best teachers and advisors in the state, and have some of the toughest courses you want to take before entering college. I invite anyone to visit or stay either way you will fall in love.
