Diberville school systems are wonderful. I graduated from DHS and my kids are attending the elementary school. Some reviews tell you they focus on sports more than education, but that is not correct. They focus on both and that should be the case. It is a great atmosphere for learning and they do a great job at preparing you for the future. As for their athletic department, it is wonderful! The school is spirited and you are proud to walk the halls. You will definitely have pride in your school. The teachers care and are helpful. You are always informed on what is going on with your child and things that are going on with the school!!! Go warriors.

This school provides an excellent learning environment where students can grow to their fullest potential. The teachers are caring and supportive, and go above and beyond to meet the needs of their students. Great school!

Horrible learning environment. Good ole boy system in full effect here. If sports and atheletes getting a free ride instead of an education are your priority, then this is your school. The administration and coaches do whatever they want. We removed our children from here. The worst!

If you like football this is your school. There is more emphasis on football than learning. Some of the teachers really love educating their students while others including the current principal just sort of glide over the content to get to the weekend.

This school is a great school and the best atmosphere. The teachers help the students in any way possible and the students can go to any of them for advice. The problems are like what most others probably experience.

I was an exchange student at D'Iberville High School. And I must say, that I enjoyed my time there. Teachers are helpful and the atmosphere is good. Problems are the typical ones that probably every school has.

It is as good or better than all area schools. It consistently scores high in testing. Our school is a family.

I graduated from D'Iberville High a few years back, and believe that DHS doesn't provide high school students the right education. If you just want your child to graduate then it's a great school, but it doesn't provide the education needed for higher education. IF you believe your child is going to college in the future, I believe you should enroll your child in a different school.

D'Iberville is a good school for your children to be involved in and you will love for your children to go here and they will remind you that they love this school all the time.
