I think Dwyer high school has a great IB program and ther Athletic program is great.

My son attended Dwyer and made a lot of good, close friends through Band. Mr. Lamp was/is a very good teacher and a dedicated one to all of his students. My son graduated a few years ago. All of the teachers that I met seemed very dedicated, and responsible. So, if you or your child isn't happy there it might be because they or you weren't as involved in the education process as you could have been. My son still has many friendships to this day that he made by being involved in the music Department. Band, Concert Band, and Marching Band.

Helpful staff, laid back atmosphere, love that the school is a campus. It's nice being outside in between classes and at lunch.

Dwyer was a great school when I attended in 2010. Everyone was very nice and I actually looked forward to going to school.



- a
This school is worse than any we have encountered. Hoodlums run the place and lazy, tenured teachers don't care.




- a
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.



- a
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?



- a
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....




- a
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.



- a
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
