Fort Dorchester High School Reviews

By a Current Student on

The school has its good and bad points. General education classes are hit-or-miss in getting decent teachers, but the schools honors, AP, and IB courses are all excellent. Fort Dorchester is average for an average student, but it is one of the best in the area for both gifted students and those who simply want to challenge themselves.

By a Parent on

I was very disapointed in this school. We were told that the schools in this district were rated some of the highest in the State. My student at this school watched 27 movies during the 2009-2010 school year. There were teachers that did nothing but scream at the students or who stayed in a high emotional state. I thnk this is a school that would benefit by doing a 'true audit' of the classrooms and not anounce when they were being audited days in advance.
