Silver Foxes Shut Out Irmo High 24-0

By: Gregg Morton, Principal

Each year, the friendly in-district gridiron competition between Irmo and Dutch Fork High football teams features a friendly wager between the principals for both schools. As the competition is played out on the football field, the losing school's principal must wear the shirt of the winning school on the Monday following the game. This year, Dutch Fork High School beat the Yellow Jackets of Irmo 24-0. This is the second victory in a row for the sliver foxes. As a result,  the Irmo High School principal, Mr. Rob Weinkle, proudly wears the silver and green of Dutch Fork High! We salute principal Weinkle for his sportsmanship as we look forward to the rematch in week eleven.

Way to go Silver Foxes!

Freshman Orientation at Dutch Fork High!

By: Robert S. Jackson, Ed.S.,
Assistant Principal for Instruction

As the school year begins, rising 9th grade students at one of America's best high schools assembled for another one of their transition experiences. At Dutch Fork High, we use events like these to ease the transition to high school and prepare students for classes. Preceding this event, student's were subjected to enriching summer reading assignments, course registration, and a summer bridge experience.

In order to cultivate their high school experience, we have assembled an amazing team 9th grade teachers in college preparatory, honors, and advanced placement classes. Through these rigorous classroom experiences which will feature 21st Century Pedagogy, innovative and authentic assessments, and project/problem based learning, we will work diligently to ensure content mastery and a high level of proficiency on standardized assessments. In doing so, we will prepare students for their college and/or career experiences.

We are looking forward to another award winning year. Join us in our pursuit of continuous excellence.
