I'm an honor graduate of DHS. I took advanced classes and challenged myself. I m sorry to say that this didn't adequately prepare me for college. In college, a professor mentioned that I did not know how to study. Though I defended the accusation, inside I knew she was correct. While a DHS student, I did not learn how to take notes, unless the teacher prefaced a statement with, You should write this down . I did not learn critical thinking skills as most of my courses were rote memory. I studied by having a good memory of what the teacher lectured on the days leading up to exams. I opened my textbooks and referred to my notes only when homework was due. Most times, my books stayed in my locker. I was not put in any situations to develop time management skills. Academically and socially, I was challenged for college.
The school is good im a 9th grader out at the school its my first year, it;s not the bad as people may make it seem. The technology program is wonderful i love my teachers their great they actualy teach me. I encourage any students in broward county that are interested in performing arts and the tech program.
Dillard is an okay school. The students have unlimited resources but dont use them efficiently.
Although a 'd' school, the music is wonderful here! I would fully recommend this school to all aspiring musicians.
The Emerging Computer Technology Magnet program at Dillard High School is excellent. It is well designed, with a new building and all new machinery and electronics. My son finished 9th grade with a dvd he made himself that was like a portfolio of his computer and graphic designs made throughout the year. I have only had 2 teachers that I did not think were absolutely top notch. My son enjoys his classes. He is in all advanced classes and still thrives with honor roll grades. The director was part of the reason that the program worked so well. She is still involved, however her replacement is also wonderful. I consider the diversity of the students a plus. My comments only apply to the computer magnet. As for the main campus, my son and I have no complaints.
This is an awesome school. Some people doubt this school because of it's academic grades and overall grade as a school but there are some real intelligent students and teachers at Dillard and on a scale one to ten I rate this school a 9.
