    I'd like to silence the false perception that Dacula isn't a top tier school. Dacula is a great school. The staff & admin are kind yet genuine people, that want every student to succeed past high school. The commons faculty members are very sweet people that encourage us to have big, big smiles in our faces everyday. The teachers here are helpful and drill us with the fact that we(the students) have the tools for success and only we can take the initiative to do so. Some students that may seem trouble some aren't judge as criminals like other schools might. No one is perfect. Here Dacula strives for everyone to have the chance for bright future. As for athletics, this school is a powerhouse from soccer to football. No short of talent here. This school is a great place to be. Glad to be a falcon.

    My son is graduating from Dacula High this year. Overall I have been pleased with the quality of education that he has received. My only complaint is with the counseling staff, although I can only speak to the quality of the counselor assigned to him, I'm not a fan.

    Dacula does a great job working with all students! The "Big Board" celebrates their accomplishments in and out of the classroom. The faculty is strong in content and care for the kids. All high schools have some problems with teenager-type issues, but the staff and student body do a great job to be accepting and caring to everyone. Our student body is very involved with the community. The test scores of Dacula continue to rise and are comparable or better than all other surrounding schools! Go Falcons!

    I am excited about the new principal. He seems to want to get the students more engaged and motivated about high school, which in turn will hopefully result in better grades and less behavioral issues. My daughter said on the first day of school there was a motivational speaker and the teachers had students to do ice breaking activities in addition to just going over the syllabus using a "speed dating" approach. She came home really excited about going back to school.

    As a student of 3 different High Schoolsfrom two different states, I can say confidently that this school DOES have a drug problem. There are great teachers here. No other school I've been to has teachers like Dacula. However, there is a strong drug influence. The test scores are generally high because there is a greater devide between students with higher and students with lower grades. There is a high drop out rate. Also, many students are transferred to dacula from other schools, because they were ejected for behavior from their previous school. This is done so that the school may remain 5A, for football region purposes. This does nothing but feed the drug problem. There have been new staff members hired this past year that may show signs of improvement. So there may be hope of fixing the drug problem, but it is going to take a few years. Bottom line this school has great teachers, a drug problem, and hope for improvement.

    I would not advise anyone to send their children to Dacula High School. It's racist against white kids, teachers don't show interest in their students that are struggling, fights, overcrowding etc.

    This high school is no place you would want to send your children! Fights, crowding, racial attitudes from blacks towards whites, teachers are not the kind of teachers you would want to teach to your children and I could go on an on.

    Dacula High School provides excellent academic opportunities and social advantages to their students. My son has attended this school for 2 years and I feel that he will be more than equip to compete on the university level. The teachers are really plugged in and interested in the success of the students. After reading many of the comments, I feel that much of the focus is extremely picky and petty. No school is perfect. It is a public school whose focus should be in providing our children with a strong academic foundation in a nurturing environment that is conducive to learning. Dacula High School is located in a beautiful close knit community that does just that! The football is a major focus, but it appears that football is a focus all over GA. So get over it....GO FALCONS!!

    Many of the teachers are good here, and I do like the emailed progress reports that are sent by most teachers. As far as safety this school is as safe as any school. Every school has issues with kids. However, I have seen atheletes get away with getting D's in classes but still being able to participate in the sport. My son had a very bad grade in one of his classes and they were still going to let him participate, but I put my foot down and said no he will not until his grade goes up. I know it is the parents responsibility to help with their children, but the school has responsibilities also. Such as, proper discipline for grades and attendance. If students know they can get away with it cause the school doesn't care they will continue to do so and their grades will suffer.

    Wow, the reviews on this school is just too comical. Okay yeah, drug problem, but go to any school in this country and you are bound to find that. And yeah, fights among students do happen, but that happens in all schools, everywhere. It doesn't happen all the time so chill out. And yes, football is a big part of this school, and sorry the arts isn't as big but come on, that the united states for you. If you don't like it, you don't have to be here. And for you whose grades have dropped, it's the schools fault, really? That sounds absurd. Take the blame and move on wit your life and stop bad-mouthing this school. Students- if you don't like it, transfer. Parents- if you don't want you kids to go there- don't make them.

    My daughter went to Dacula HS. I did not feel that she was safe there. I did not like the bad influences that were at Dacula HS, and it seems to have a drug problem, along with too many school fights.

    Dacula is fun and all the teachers do all that they can for every student to succeed. My parents love the continuouse e-mailed grade reports. Mainly Dacula has great teachers and students everyone is friendly, and it is easy for a new student to fit in.
