College Signing Day

Dryden High School seniors celebrated College Signing Day on Monday, May 2.

Thank you to all who purchased gifts to send them off prepared

for their next educational chapter!

NEW Class Alert! 🚨

Let’s talk about High School Music Appreciation.


Have you ever read a story that let you choose your own adventure? Well, that's what this class is like!


During the first week, you will complete a questionnaire about your musical interests and knowledge, and then the units are chosen from there. You will also learn about the behind the scenes work it takes to put on a show, and get some practice at it as well!


This is definitely a class you won't regret taking!
