Dorman has gone down since last time I have been there. I mean they go all the way down, they just don't stop at the tip anymore, they go down, down to the toes. Dorman is not as amazing as it is anymore. For example, at one point, Dorman was a caterpillar, but it never underwent a cocoon phase, and is not as pretty as the other school around it, such as Spartanburg High School. The students don't do much for A's either...like I said, they've lowered their standards...down to the toes. I feel sorry for the current and future Dorman students. If possible, avoid sending your children here, and send them to Spartanburg High School, where they don't have to go downtown to receive A's.

The Dorman 'U' has all the necessary tools at the students' availability for them to perform at the very highest level, whether they are sports or artisticly inclined, or just educationally inclined. There is a high level of student competition which makes for better student performance. There are also activities at all levels and areas of interest for any students needs. And, the expectations of the school instructors for excellence also plays into Dorman's high standards. My daughter has been rewarded for her hard work and desire to make Dorman all the school she wants it to be!!!!

I have to disagree with the last review. I attended Dorman High from 1998 until 2002. I was in the band, the symphony, and spring musicals and I feel I was greatly rewarded for my talent and hard work. My family had very little money, and spent very close to nothing on my band activities. The music program generates tons of money for itself and the school, and the students are rewarded for that. The music programs at Dorman were my favorite aspect of the school while I was there. The academic programs (especially the huge list of AP classes available) are superior to most other schools in the state.

Dorman has an outstanding music and sports program but only students that have money will be recgonized for their music talent and hard work, but on the flip side if you're good athlete you are treated with royalty. The academic program at Dorman is good, but the teachers are not qualified and lack love and compassion. However, the principal Mr. Wyatt is great he tries to help you and give advice whenever possible. Dorman certainly hasn't made the cut with our family. We regret the day we came to Dorman.

I am not a parent, but I work with high school students and I am a Dorman Grad. I can honestly say that Dorman is one of the best, if not the best, High School I have ever had contact with. My education there prepared me well for College and Graduate School. The skills I learned at Dorman served me well in my higher education. Now with a Master's Degree, I can look back and see how Dorman played into my success in both that degree and my BA. You get out of an education what you put into it. No matter how good the teaching is, if you put nothing in, you will take nothing away! The opportunities are abundant at Dorman - excellent programs, high quality teaching, a wide variety of disciplines and advanced courses. What the individual student does with them is a personal choice.

Having graduated from Dorman I can truly attest that it is one of, if not the, best high schools in South Carolina. With a state whose academic reputation is at the lowest of possible lows, Dorman has proven many times in my post-graduate years to evoke an 'impressed' reaction when I have told others of my alma mater. As a student I was unaware of the true benefits that Dorman offered me, but in hindsight I clearly see how one school proudly stands out in a state of poor academic standards. When I moved to SC as a sophomore I was deeply saddened about my future educational options but I was quickly adjusted and happy. Dorman made my former high schools (2) in NC look like a school 'bought from Wal-Mart'. Hands down, not perfect by any means, but very close!

Dorman is #1 in the Upstate, hands down. The athletics, and quality of education is top tier! The new school is terrific, and gives the students more of a college feel rather than the typical high school drag. Also, the amount of advanced classes is unreal compared to other local schools. Also, the oppurtunity to go to a vocational school and learn a skill is terrific! I would not want my child to go anywhere else in the Upstate of South Carolina!

Dorman offers a college atmosphere to high school students, I don't know any better way to prepare a high school student for college! With a athletics second to none, and academics that rank top in the state, this is the best school a child can attend. I am a 2002 graduate and was born and bred in the Greenville country school districts, I'm glad I ended up at Dorman, I wouldn't change a thing about the school!

Dorman is a poor school when it comes down to being a student there. The teachers at Dorman are mediocre, with a mix of very good ones and very bad ones, and the administration is absolutely horrid. The school officials don't seem to care about their students at all, and they treat them like they are in elementary school. Also, the new campus makes students feel like they're in a prison rather than in a school. It can be said, however, that Dorman has a number of advanced classes to choose from, but this can be a drawback when you look at most of the people who are doing the teaching. Overall, Dorman definitely wasn't the best school I've ever attended.

Dorman is the best school around! With all the exciting sports {especially football}, other programs, wonderful teachers and students, huge and clean school, and the advanced test scores Dorman, you better bet Dorman's #1!

I love the new Dorman. Though the schools size may be crazy and is not needed, it's beautiful, you must admit. The students are proud to say they attend Dorman.

My son began Dorman Freshman Campus this year. I have been extremely pleased with the quality of his teachers, the structure of the classrooms and believe my son is well on his way to a bright future with the help of Dorman High School. The honors curriculum is tough but the teaching of the classes is terrific. My son thrives in a structured atmosphere. Thanks Dorman!

Dorman High School is all right academically, but the new building is an environmental abomination and an architectural monstrosity.
