I think that the teachers care a lot. The problem is the students. They don't respect anyone, or anything. They have no manners and they bully verbally, and they know which words can really get to different types of people. You can meet a few decent people, but the majority of the students travel in "packs" and bully anyone that isn't it that particular group. On the bright side, the teachers usually stop problems going on, but that doesn't stop anyone from creating more problems.

Dundee Central School is located in the great little community of Dundee NY. The school provides not only great academic opportunities like college level courses for advanced students, but the school also has many extra curricular activities. The music, theater and sporting programs are also very strong. As a former student I found that Dundee Central did prepare me for college and life because I challenged myself by taking harder courses and joining clubs and sports teams. Just like in life the more involved you are in the school and community the more you will get out of it.

Excellent teaching and administration staff. Small class sizes, extra help available for anyone needing it, wide variety of extra curricular activities, and lost of scool spirit.

Dundee is, while rural and sheltered, a wonderful little community all contained within one k-12 building. In my experience, DCS is doing as much as they can with the very little they are able to gather with such a small tax base. They offer a wide variety of college level classes, sports, music, art, and theatre. I give DCS two thumbs way up!

Dundee has many problems. First, they have a very big discipline problem that is out of control. There is also a problem with lack of respect, the students have a problem with respecting themselves, their fellow students and their teachers. Dundee does not prepare you well in the academics for college in my opinion. Dundee has changed for the worst, I just hope it can become better, even if it is after I am gone.

I am shocked at the level of education the children are receiving in Dundee; and apparently the rest of the state averages even worse. I think music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are unimportant. I think some level of homeschooling would be preferable.

The principal has no 'authority' or respect. Most of the good teachers leave, & the ones who stay are stifled. Unfortunately, people don't get to 'choose' this school, they are born here because their family has lived here forever, and DCS doesn't exactly encourage or prepare you for higher learning. Many kids who do go to college often have to take remedial college courses to catch up to where a high school graduate should be. The military is welcomed to recruit there though,So if your kid isn't given guidance about college at DCS, there's always Iraq.

As a student at Dundee Central Senior High School, I am very disappointed. There are very few decent teachers and there is a very poor math program here. I, as well as many of my fellow students have had a very difficult time passing the mathematics state regents. The National Honor society has lost its honor, since the four qualities of character, scholarship, leadership and service are often ignored. I have known past students having to take very basic courses in English, math and science after getting into college because they had not been well prepared for the college level. Overall I am just very disappointed in this school and would never suggest the high school to anyone.

As a student at Dundee, my views on the school tend to be different from those who focus solely on statistical data. Dundee is a fantastically well-knit unit, offering a wide variety of extracurricular activities, despite a lower budget than other schools. Students can be active in practically anything and everything they want to do. The school's campus and buildings are phenomnial compared to other similar schools in the area. I always feel like the school is the 'castle on the hill' in Dundee. The staff is supportive and often become personally attached to their students. At the moment, theatre is the 'in thing', and it's no wonder. Dundee has recently established itself as a real central NY contender, claiming a great many ensemble and individual awards at the Michael Harms Theatre Festival in Syracuse. My years 'together in Dundee forever will remain'.
