Dumas High School is one of the best schools to go to. Everyone knows how to behave and we all love setting goals. The teachers are all magnificent and love their jobs, it is the perfect learning environment. We have recently upgraded our learning with adding more technology which has significantly helped multiple students. I would like to see more involvement in more students in the future.

The teachers at Dumas High School do more than they have to for their students around the school. They make learning fun and let students know they are allowed to be helped at certain times if they are struggling with a lesson. The teachers and staff let the students feel safe and respect their choices to a certain standard. The staff at Dumas High School is great!

Teachers at Dumas High School in Texas, tried and care, but others don't. They have favorite where the teacher gave him/her a free pass to homework and Daily work. Which is not fair to the student who are trying their's hardest.
