    "Dutch Fork offers more AP classes than some nearby schools. It has a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Program available for students who qualify for this rigorous course of study. They have excellent teachers and a wonderful Silver Spirit Band. We are thoroughly pleased with the education our son is getting."

    "Dutch Fork High continues a tradition of excellence in academics, leadership and athletics. The last few years under the direction of Principal Morton, the school's graduates have gained more scholarship money, hired wonderful staff for key positions on campus. I look forward to my boys receiving a quality education through Dutch Fork High!"

    "As a whole, South Carolina schools are almost always ranked towards the bottom. There are various reasons for this, but I would gladly compare Dutch Fork against any school in the country, public or private. The class selections are wonderful. There is something for everyone and they strive to prepare the students not only for college but also career choices after wards. Most of the teachers my child has had have been wonderful, her AP English teacher in particular. There have been a few, however, that I wasn't as pleased with. But I imagine this sort of thing will occur in just about any school. Overall, if you're moving to the area, you won't be disappointed with Dutch Fork. Your child will receive a top notch education."

    "Dutch Fork High is clearly a great school preparing its' students well for future endevors. This is clearly seen at any major university in South Carolina where DFHS graduates are at the top of their classes. Though these elements that continue to rank DF as the top school in South Carolina have obvious beneficiaries, there are drawbacks that can have a very negative affect on a DF student even after graduation. Because of DF's 'standards of excellence,' the competitve nature of the school is extremley intense and at times can result in a student's poor self- image. Furthermore and an even bigger issue stems from the socio- economic status of the students that attend DFHS. As the school serves a very affluent area of Columbia, diversity (racially and economically) is very minimal. This being said, graduates have such a 'skewed view on reality.' As a graduate, I have seen both sides."
