n and how the staff will always stick together against the student no matter how in the wrong the staff actually is. Please do not send your child to this school. I have no choice but to graduate from Dunedin and I feel this school has negatively impacted my life a great deal if you care about your children's education or how they are treated while at school definitely send them somewhere else. Oh, and another thing I might add is...DRUGS.ARE.EVERYWHERE.HERE.

Don't let these other reviewers fool you, This school needs A LOT of improvement and strongly suggest another school for your child to go to. My daughter experienced a terrible education, poor teaching quality and one of the teachers were even talking about pimping women! The principal will be retiring too and he wasn't helping the school in the long run. Please take your child somewhere else!

I have a Fundamental student at Dunedin this year and this school, along with it's principal, teachers and staff are amazing. My child is thriving and is encouraged each day to continue to grow and be challenged. Her grades and test scores are up and she loves going to school each day. I am an Alumni, Class of 1992, and this High School prepared me to become an entrepeneur and I see the same things happening to my daughter. I am proud and blessed to be a Falcon!!!

Dunedin High School is a place where those kids who want to succeed, can and those who don't,complain about it. It has been a great experience for my children, especially since a new principal came on board a few years ago. He is very passionate about student success and making opportunities available to students to help them when it's needed.

I have had three children graduate from Dunedin High School, and have round it to be excellent. It is not perfect, as no high school could be, but the teachers and administrators are very caring and helpful with very few exceptions. I especially want to recomment the Drama Department. My daughter has learned so much in her four years at the school. The department is very well run and provides a safe outlet for the theater students

My daughter is currently a senior at DHS, we have been here since freshman year. Mr. Hepburn came to us in Sophomore year. He and staff have turned DHS around 180 degrees! The school is focused on the kids succeeding academically and in pursuit of good character. Mr. Hepburn and staff have made themselves accessible when any concerns or issues arise. Hepburn is a busy man, but he has always gone out of his way to personally take care of any concerns we have had. I'm very grateful and would recommend DHS to any parents who want their children to succeed!

My daughter just started this year and I met some of the staff and the prinipal. The school is immaculate. The staff were exceptionally nice and helpful. Everyone I spoke with including volunteers loved the school. The principal is wonderful! My daughter is a very nice young girl, very respectful. She love her teachers, and the kids, well they are the same as any school, the good, the bad and the ugly. They have a wonderul after school homework class for evey subject 4 days a week which is awesome! Overall, so far, I am very happy with the school. Reading these reviews worried me but not anymore. People should check it out for themselves.

DHS is a great school. Mr. Hepburn did a stellar job in his first year & is positioning the school for the incoming first fundamental freshman class. I am hoping that with this new focus on fundamental status that there will be more parental involvement as that is the only piece missing from a great picture of Dunedin High School. I have to also add that the guidance department works very hard with the students ensuring that they have the correct subject & credits to graduate as June 2011 was the largest graduating class. Guidance also helps seniors/juniors to find scholarship money to continue education on college. The teachers rea;;y seem to care about the students and the smaller campus makes DHS a hidden treasurer in the Pinellas County School system.

The school is exactly what you put into it. The teachers are, for the most part, fantastic. If your child participates and puts the effort out, they will get a tremendous amount out of Dunedin High School. The staff is great - not rude! The morale of the students does NOT depend on the teachers. It starts at home and then spreads to the children. If you're not happy with your child and their education - try being a little more involved!

School is nothing special. Teachers don't teach as well as they should and don't seem to be very caring, neither are the students. When you add non-caring students and non-caring teachers together, you get Dunedin High School. It's a mess. Do not go here, Please.

This school is terrible. There is no leadership, and if they do try to be authoritative, they go about it in all the wrong ways. Zero school spirit, morale is low. Overall an awful school.

I have 2 children at DHS. They are both in the Fast Track BA program which basically means they are qualified AP students. Love, Love, Love the teachers my children have had. Had a little concern with my daughters Geometry teacher but it all panned out. Teachers are available after school for help. They truly are proud of their students and are willing to help in anyway. My children are both on sports. They are involved in wonderful clubs that help the community. Overall, a great high school experience. Excellent teacher: Dr. E., Ms. Korupas, Ms. Stackpole, Mr. Haines, Ms. Weybrant, Mr. Logaski, Senora Barrett...

I used to teach at DHS 5 years ago & I can clearly see many improvements in the discipline structure, Mr. Summa is firm, FAIR and respectful of the students rights. I feel that my kids are safe and in an environment that they can flourish & excel. I am also glad to see Tom Britain back at DHS - a great asset to the school.

Overall the school is good especially since our new amazing principal, Mr. Paul Summa. He will do anything possible for a student, same with the new guidance and assistant principal staff. There is fighting at the school, but you'll find it at every high school, but when I was there fighting definitely declined with our new principal. Dr. Eberts, Mr. McKinney, Ms. Kuropas, Mrs. McDonald, Mrs. Barret and Mr. Haines are by far the best teachers at the school. All in all I had a great experience at this school and wouldn't change a thing. I would just recommend to get involved, take classes with the teachers I mentioned.

Dunedin High School is a fabulous school. I just had my 3rd child graduate from there and all 3 are on Florida Bright Futures 100% at University of Florida. There is just as high or just as low of an education there as a student wants to get. Very much of a 'community' environment at DHS -- everybody knows everybody and small town. As with all schools, we have some fabulous teachers and some you want to avoid. Can't do better than Van Black & Audrey Kolozi for upper level math and the social studies dept. is fantastic as is art dept. English dept. needs some better teachers. We have a brand new principal/administrative staff this year so that should help the consistency in discipline and morale is incredibly high! Lots of sports programs -- some good, some bad but all FUN. My kids loved DHS and wouldn't go anywhere else!

Dunedin H.S. is the best, my son started his freshmen yr here and is now a jr. Because of the quality of atention, education, care and concern that has been provided to him I will do everything within my means that he completes his H.S. yrs here. The faculty and ataff show true concern for their students. They challenge their minds to exceed further when they think they have met their goals. Thank you all so very much for helping me make a great man out of my boy.

Dunedin High is a school rich in tradition. The bagpipe band is amazing, and is the first thing people think of when they hear 'Dunedin High'. There are many clubs and extracurricular activities offered. Unfortunately, the academic programs, while sufficient, do not offer a lot of challenges for college bound students. There are a limited number of AP courses, and there is not a lot of support from faculty for students needing an extra push. Self-guided students do very well here, as well as students whose parents are in tune with their needs and are willing to give that extra push if it's needed. Overall I would say Dunedin High School is average at best.

School is supose to be a place to learn. I find it highly improbable that students are learning at the level which they should be striving for at DHS. The teachers are apathetic, and administration refuses to take initiative. I can understand why the teachers are burnt out, limited raises over the past couple years coupled with a lame duck administration. I would like to see more focus on helping students strive to be their best and less on office politics. By the way, what is up with your receptionist? Not a good first impression. Sheis very abusive with students and mocks them when they have a valid issue. I have seen this on more then one visit.

There needs to be much more disciplinary action taken regarding the students. Too much bullying prevails. How can a child have their self-esteem built up if they are being picked on constantly? Mrs. Garasic is the best part of the school.
