I have been very pleased with Dillon High School. I feel that my child is getting an excellent education. The teachers have been really good about keeping in touch with me when my son has any problems with material. My son has really enjoyed most of the classes--the only ones he hasn't are not really because of the teachers, i.e. he doesn't like the subject. The advisors have been very helpful with college planning. I feel that DHS is a super school. Unfortunately, I have had to go to the office a couple of times, but the principal did a super job and was fair to all parties. I don't regret sending my son there at all! Go Wildcats!

The teachers decent for the most part it seems. I did not find the advisors to be very helpful. The general attitude of the students and parents is very poor when it comes to acadmics. My daughter is making very decent grades in her core subjects without having a good understanding of the concepts of each class. Her grades are not reflecting what she has actually learned. I am holding her to a higher standard than her teachers are to correct this. I get the feeling that the standards are held low on purpose. That's just my opinion.

I drop my child off in the mornings and see young boys smoking; I pick my child up from school functions at night and see boys and girls doing 'grown' things behind the big green trashcans. ???? What else is going on that we don't see?

In the last 5 years, DHS has made great strides and has turned out a higher percentage of college graduates without tapering with numbers as another county school has done.

The teaching staff are dedicated to everyone's education, positive feedback to students and parents. Inpressive .

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP) to test middle and high school students in Algebra I, Mathematics for the Technologies II, Biology I, English I, US History, and US History and Government. The EOCEP provides tests in high school core courses and for courses taken in middle school for high school credit. The EOCEP is a standards-based test program, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score a C or above.
