Fort Dorchester High School Ratings & Reviews

As a tutor/mentor the staff made it very hard to find information about the student schedules and more information about the students progress. I felt as if they are just allowing the students to do bare minimal . In other terms " Passing them alone so then once they are done its not the school problem" The majority of students are not prepared for college. New students that transfer to the school are not assisted by guidance counselors to deal with separation and personality disorders. I asked my student how can we prepare for class when you have "NO BOOKS". I was told you cant... After visiting the school I found out that majority of the courses are online. Hmm... In order to help my student I need a syllabus of the work and a book or guide. Instead, I was told that I have to depend on the student to get the book from a teacher. How can I depend on the student when the main reason I need the book is because the student is not complying. So in other words I guess I will have no book. I was told I can contact the students teachers via email. Well all of them did not respond except for one. Hmm. Useless!!! I am very upset and it feels as if the school is setting the students up for FAILURE!!! All I want to do is help my students out but your making it impossible to do so when your website is USELESS AND YOUR STAFF!!!

We have had a very positive experience at FDHS. The tennis program is great. We love the Wescott community.
May 16, 2014 Submitted by a parent
FDHS has allowed for violence and fighting to become the norm. Due to the location of the school the diversity of the students is not taken into consideration. You have a high % of students with no support at home concerning their education or behavioral issues and the minority of students with an excellent support system. This diversity is not handled well by the Administration. New Administration with fresh eyes is needed to re-structure how this school functions. A lot a potential is falling by the way side. (both students & teachers)

Fort Dorchester is one of the best schools around!!! The teachers are actually helpful and make class enjoyable to learn. Sure it may be a little crowded in the halls, but thats the sacrifice for going to suchja great school!!!!

Fort Dorchester may be slightly overcrowded and uncomfortable, but after about the first month everyone seems to learn their way around the hallways. The academic programs that FDHS offers are highly advanced and in some cases can even count as a free college credit. Such programs in the AP and IB programs, along with Honors. Although violence, fighting, is a some what normal occurance, the administration deals with the students accordingly. Fort has many positive programs such as academic awards, pep rallies, homecoming, and patriot pride referrals. Although Fort can be a somewhat tough school to adjust to if coming from a small school or private school, the faculty and staff are a generous group of people that want to help students succeed.
