Dresden is a great school, and a great place to live. I learned alot in high school, and it prepared me well for college.


Posted May 5, 2004

I think Dresden High School is a really great school. The teachers there are great. The principal is awesome. He isn't one of those somber, really seriouse types. He does make the students obey the rules, but he also can have fun with the students.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Tennessee used the Gateway/End-of-Course (EOC) exams to test high school students in language arts, math, science, and social studies upon completion of relevant courses. Students must pass the algebra I, English II, and biology I tests, called the Gateway exams, in order to graduate. The Gateway/EOC exams are standards-based tests that measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Tennessee. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
