Open Quote Dunwoody High School has improved over the past several years. I'm sure it will continue to improve as well. There are more and more kids taking AP's and scoring a 3 or better. There are more kids graduating and going to higher education. They have an incredible Finance Academy headed by Steve Fortenberry. They have excellent sports program for boys as well as girls. Construction was just completed last year which updated the science labs, added classrooms and a beautiful auditorium. Dunwoody High School is supported heavily by local businesses and a very active PTA and Booster Club. School spirit is everywhere in the Dunwoody community. GO WILDCATS! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
