A Great American School

In 2002, DHS was one of six schools nation-wide to earn the recognition as a "Great American High School". The formula for making a great place to go to school and learn was simple:

  • Make school relevant to our students' future careers
  • Teach them math, science, English, and social studies—every year
  • Get parents involved
  • Use local resources, starting with SOSU
  • Keep classes small

The results have been higher ACT scores, low student-teacher ratios, a low dropout rate, and better attendance. Most of our students attend college, and nearly all have a career path by the time they graduate, statistics show.
