This school is worse than any we have encountered. Hoodlums run the place and lazy, tenured teachers don't care.
I strongly disliked this school while attending it. The poorly behaved students and unhelpful faculty led to my decision to switch schools (to Dreyfoos) where I would enjoy the rest of my three years of high school. Another reason I decided to leave was because of the unsanitary campus, including the bathrooms that either never had soap, toilet paper, or paper towel. Drugs and fighting are also an issue at this supposed "A" school. I'm very happy to be leaving after terrible year.
There is a large cell phone tower on the school grounds. What about the health of the kids? How can the school district risk the kids' health like this rather than make an effort to find safe ways to raise money?
Failing in the guidance end of the student's needs. Everything regarding this dept. sems to be a bigger issuue than it really is and should be....
I have a son who is currently attending Dwyer. We have been very happy with the school, the teachers and the programs they have to offer. We have had a great relationship with the staff, teachers, guidence dept. and coaches. Overall it is a very good school.
This is school is absolutely THE MOST terriblest experience in all my years of attending school. If you have a problem, one that is embarassing or different( only so few have this problem) then the teachers DO NOT CARE! In fact, they go along with the students and aid in bullying you( indirect and direct jokes, dont tell them to stop, get annoyed at you, obviously dislike your presence) although you barely even talk in class, and remain mannerful. This school only seems to welcome the rich and high class and favoritism by teachers is shown in their favor. I absolutely loathe this school, it is the equivalent of hell. Dont send your child here if you want them to be happy, but if you only care about their education, then go ahead. Nothing would go wrong except for their self esteem and social skills
This is by far one of the worst schools in palm beach county to much bad influence going on around the high school wish i would have never ever went here !
its my first year at Dwyer and i couldn't be happier with the school. The teachers really care and they are easy to communicate with. Dr Lee is an amazing principle and is running a great school. I would highly recommend going to this school.
I came from another Highscool in the area, that was a terrible experince for me. My brother and I are very happy here, because my Mother is a very demanding parent as she teaches, and I now I am receiving the best education that is right for me. GO PANTHERS!!!!!!!!!
This is a great school, but some of the teachers are lacking. Dr. Lee is an amazing principle though and most of the teachers are amazing.
this has been one of the more unproductive years that I have seen here, and I have been working as a volunteer at the school for years. Too many cutbacks, getting rid of teachers, discipline problems, if I could switch out fo this school for next year, I most send my child to another school. This is not an option. Seems the Finance magnet problem is booming because that's where the school spends it's most time, effort and school budget. I am extremely dissappointed
Dwyer is an incredible school. It starts at the top with the principal, Dr. Lee and all the way down to the custodians. Everyone enthusiastically creates a great learning environment which allows the students to flourish.
Dwyer is the most exquisite school I have visited in quite a while. The students are well mannered and educated. The teachers are worthy of the title 'Teacher' and it is for these reasons why Dwyer has kept its title as an 'A' school.
My daughter is in her second year at Dwyer. We are very pleased with the educational environment at Dwyer. And unlike other area high schools which are way over capacity, Dwyer is under capacity. The turnover rate forteachers is very low, which says a lot about the school.
IAfter attending the open house this week, I came away extremely impressed with the faculty. Each instructor seemed genuinely enthustiastic about teaching and the challenges of inspiring students to think for themselves--not just memorize the material. My son was at Duncan MS when Dr. Lee was the principal and my impression of him was that he is very dedicated and innovative. Dwyer HS is fortunated to have another outstanding leader!
This is by far one of the worst schools ever! I hated my freshman year...Im not looking forward to my sophomores year at all. The teachers are harsh and students are mostly rude, half the school is coming from rivera beach which makes it hard to hang out and make friends with people who live so far away... Do your self a favor and go to jupiter! I hate dwyer
I currently attend William T Dwyer High School, and it has been one of the best experiences of my life. The extra curricular activites are amazing and the teachers truly care about pushing you to your highest ability. I was afraid to start out high school just like any other middle school student, even with the guidance of having my older sister there. But luckily Dwyer is the type of place where you automatically feel at home. Unfortunately my parents are moving so I will not be able to attend this school next year, and I can honestly say I going to miss everyone there.
Excellent. The teachers, administrators, and staff all seem to truly care about the success of each student - a great place to send your child.
I have had 2 daughters graduate from Dwyer and now my youngest will be graduating in May. I am very happy with this school. My girls have made life long friendships with students and teachers. Dwyer definitely is A rated!
We are proud to be the parents of two students at Williams T. Dwyer High School. I am always welcomed on campus and my questions or concerns are addressed quickly. The staff is professional and friendly.
