Dunwoody high school (DHS) continues its upward trajectory under Principal Tom McFerrin. In addition to being the top academic performing school in Dekalb county, a DHS student this year earned a PEFECT SCORE on the ACT. Interesting statistics: on average, less than 1% of all test takers will achieve a perfect score. For this test year, only 2,235 students out of 2.1 million students can make this claim. WILDCAT PRIDE at its finest!
From the active, involved parents to their groundbreaking Dunwoody Dads auxiliary committee, DHS is doing everything right. Kudos and the great work will continue.
We were new residents to Georgia and when we were seeking an upscale neighborhood with outstanding schools to move to, Dunwoody came up over and over again. I now know why. The high school is a gem. It has accomplished faculty and highly motivated students. I counted no less than 6 national merit semi-finalists during this current semester alone. I learned of many Ivy league student acceptances and numerous other academic accomplishments. They put the right emphasis on the right things and we are very pleased.
I am a current student at Dunwoody High School (DHS). I transferred from a private school in the area and I am so pleased that I did. I am positive that the academic preparation I receive here will more than prepare me to get into and succeed at a top university. DHS has a diverse student body, a super helpful faculty, a friendly student body, and is located in a great community. I play Lacrosse and the parent booster club is very highly organized which makes fundraising for our team a breeze. I would highly recommend my high school to all students interested in a first rate educational experience.
Dunwoody High School is a great school with exemplary parental and neighborhood support. The sense of community at this school is unlike any I have experienced before. There are some amazing teachers and some highly motivated students. Recently, the captain of the football team went on to attend Harvard! Enough said.
My daughter attends Dunwoody and is a junior this year. We had a new principal this school year and he is absolutely fantastic. Mr. McFerrin has turned this school around 180 degrees from what it was under the previous "leadership"... he is professional, approachable, hands-on, and works extremely well with the parents and the students. I can't say enough good things about him. My daughter has had excellent teachers and a variety of choices in extra-curricular activities. My only gripe is that DeKalb County needs to provide some funds for the athletic field... too many different sports are trying to use the field after school. Overall, I think Dunwoody is a really good school now and would recommend it.
LOVE Dunwoody High School! I'll admit I was nervous to put my son into the school 3 years ago. But with Mr. Swanson as the principal we have seen big changes! The school is redone, the fine arts is taking off and with the new Finance and Mass Communication Academies we are on the way to a GREAT school! If we could become a Charter school it would be perfect!
One of the up and coming arts schools. Despite some a Dunwoody's less than capable staff, and lact a top cleanliness standards; the school is not all bad. The fine arts department is usually neglected in most public schools, but the new principle is very supportive of the arts. Dunwoody's new Choir program is in more capable hands, the orchestra is doing well, and their band program is exellent. The band director at Dunwoody has turned the marching band and symphonic band around. They are own their way up and there is no stop in sight.
