Dallastown Area High School is a large suburban, American High School and is part of the Dallastown Area School District. The school is located at 700 New School Lane, Dallastown, Pennsylvania in York County, Pennsylvania. Dallastown Area High School is commonly referred to as Dallastown, Dallastown High, DAHS, and DHS. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2010, Dallastown Area High School reported an enrollment of 1,869 pupils in grades 9th through 12th, with 272 pupils eligible for a federal free or reduced-price lunch due to family poverty. The school employed 127 teachers, yielding a student–teacher ratio of 15:1.[1] According to a report by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, 100% of its teachers were rated "Highly Qualified" under No Child Left Behind.[2]

History[edit]

The first Dallastown High School class graduated in 1898.[3] The first constructed building to house the newly created Dallastown High School, a combination of local schoolhouses, was on Charles St. in Dallastown, now Dallastown Elementary. This building became too small, and effective July 1, 1958; the school districts of Loganville, Springfield and York Township became the York Imperial Union School District. Accordingly, the Dallastown Area School System, which operated all of the schools in the area, grades 1 through 12, was composed of three member districts: Dallastown Borough, Yoe Borough and York Imperial Union. Realizing an immediate need for a building for secondary school purposes, a site was selected and construction of a 167,262-square-foot (15,539.1 m2) building began. On September 1, 1958, the doors of the new Dallastown Area High School opened.[3] The Dallastown Area High School was first constructed in 1958 and underwent a major renovation and remodel in 2001.[3]

The Campus[edit]

The Dallastown High School is adjoined with Dallastown Area Middle School to form the Dallastown Middle-High School Campus. Due to growing overcrowding, the district administration determined building a new school to host grades 4-6, the Dallastown Area Intermediate School, would help to alleviate this problem.[4] The district removed the sixth grade from the Middle School in 2010, the year the Intermediate School was completed, allowing the High School to obtain some of the former Middle School classrooms. An enclosed hallway was built to connect the high school to the former middle school wing.[4] In 2011, the high school became more energy efficient with solar panels on the roof of the campus; the panels were dedicated to long-time Dallastown Area School District board member Earl Miller.[5]

Graduation rate[edit]

In 2012, Dallastown Area High School graduation rate was 94%.[6] In 2011, the Dallastown Area High School graduation rate was 97%.[7] In 2010, the Pennsylvania Department of Education issued a new, 4-year cohort graduation rate. Dallastown Area High School's rate was 95% for 2010.[8]

According to traditional graduation rate calculations
  • 2010 – 96%[9]
  • 2009 – 97%[10]
  • 2008 – 93%
  • 2007 – 93%[11]
  • 2006 – 94%[12]

Graduation requirements[edit]

The Dallastown Area School Board has determined that a pupil must earn 26 credits to graduate, including: math 3 credits (Algebra 1 and Geometry), English 4 credits, social studies 3 credits, science 3 credits, Humanities - 2 credits, Physical Education 1.6 credits, Health .6 credits, Computer Applications .4 credits, Graduation Project 1 credit and electives 7 credits.[13]

By law, all Pennsylvania secondary school students must complete a project as a part of their eligibility to graduate from high school. The type of project, its rigor and its expectations are set by the individual school district.[14] Students earn 1.0 credit towards graduation upon completion of the project.[15]

By Pennsylvania School Board regulations, beginning with the class of 2017, public school students must demonstrate successful completion of secondary level course work in Algebra I, Biology, and English Literature by passing the Keystone Exams.[16][17][18] For the class of 2019, a composition exam will be added. For the class of 2020, passing a civics and government exam will be added to the graduation requirements.[19] In 2011, Pennsylvania high school students field tested the Algebra 1, Biology and English Lit exams. The statewide results were: Algebra 1 38% on grade level, Biology 35% on grade level and English Lit - 49% on grade level.[20] Individual student, school or district reports were not made public, although they were reported to district officials by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students identified as having special needs and qualifying for an Individual Educational Program (IEP) may graduate by meeting the requirements of their IEP.

Academics[edit]

AYP PSSA history[edit]

In 2012, Dallastown Area Senior High School declined further to School Improvement AYP status due to lagging achievement in reading and mathematics. The school missed 5 out of 8 academic metrics measured.[21] The Administration was required to develop a school improvement plan to address the academic issues. The PDE required the administration submit the plan for approval. School improvement funds were available to fund reforms. Additionally, under No Child Left Behind, the school was mandated to inform the parents of the low academic achievement.

In 2011, Dallastown Area Senior High School declined to Warning AYP status due to lagging student achievement in reading and mathematics.[22] In 2010, the school achieved AYP status. In 2009, the high school was in Warning status due lagging IEP (Special Education) student achievement.[23]

Fall sports[edit]

Football[edit]

The YAIAA is created (1960-1980)[edit]

The Wildcats emerged with the creation of a York-Adams county athletic conference, the YAIAA, which awarded its first football championship in 1960.[58] Dallastown won four YAIAA championships in this 20-year period (1969, 1971, 1976, and 1980).[58]

The drought (1981-2006)[edit]

In the time after winning the 1980 YAIAA championship in the 1980-1981 school year, the Wildcats failed to earn another YAIAA title or post-season playoff appearance,[58] once created by the PIAA in 1988.[59] The success of the team was often moderate, but the low point of this period was certainly the two-year stretch of one-win seasons in 2005 [60] and 2006.[61]

New success (2007-Present)[edit]

The 2007 campaign was a welcome change from the previous dry-spell. The Wildcats obtained a 6-4 regular season record.[62] Additionally, after a gutsy overtime play against rival Red Lion Area Senior High School to win 22-21, the Wildcats obtained a post-season berth for the first time in school history.[63] Dallastown faced William Penn Senior High School and was defeated 21-6.[62] The Wildcats won the YAIAA Sportsmanship Award for their 2007 campaign.[58]

The Wildcats also qualified for the PIAA District 3 football playoffs in 2008 and 2009, each ending in a first-round lose against Penn Manor High School[64] and Central York High School,[65] respectively.

In 2010, the Wildcats would reach new heights. After going an undefeated 10-0 in regular season play,[66] including a remarkable comeback from a 0-22 deficit against rival Red Lion Area Senior High School to win 38-36,[67] the Wildcats not only saw themselves in post-season play, but holding sole possession of a YAIAA title.[58] Additionally, Dallastown sat atop the final regular season PIAA District 3 power rankings.[68] From there, the Wildcats opened post-season play against Conestoga Valley High School with a victory,[69] the first playoff win in school history, to set up a rematch with Red Lion Area Senior High School. With revenge and redemption on their minds, the visiting Red Lion lions defeated the Wildcats in an upset 14-6.[70] The loss ended the Wildcats season with an 11-1 overall record.

Field hockey[edit]

The Dallastown Field Hockey team is noted for its success. Since 1991, the Wildcats have won 14 Division 1 titles in 1993, 1996–2000, and 2003-2010.[58] The team has had varying levels of success in the PIAA District 3 Field Hockey tournament. Starting many PIAA District 3 Field Hockey tournaments as the number 1 seed, the Wildcats have found little success to match their seeding,[71] but the Wildcats have qualified for the PIAA Field Hockey tournament, including a 4-year streak from 1996-1999.[72]

Boys' soccer[edit]

The Dallastown Boys' Soccer team has been dominant in the YAIAA in recent years, including three-straight Division 1 titles in 2009, 2010, and 2011 and YAIAA Tournament Championships in 2010 and 2011.[58] In all, the Wildcats have won 10 Division 1 titles since 1991, and another YAIAA Tournament Championship in 2001. The Wildcats met great success in 2010 with a PIAA District 3 Championship, the first since the 1996 title.[73]

Winter sports[edit]

Wrestling[edit]

Once a powerhouse, the Dallastown wrestling program has met more individual than team success in recent years, the most recent being Clay Gable's PIAA Championship at the 171 weight class in 2009.[74] Since 1967, the Wildcats have garnered an impressive 30 YAIAA Division 1 titles.[58] In addition, the Wildcat wrestlers have 10 YAIAA Sportsmanship Award-winning teams.[58]

PIAA Wrestling Champions[74]
Wrestler Weight Year
George Myers 145 1969
Dick Hartman 180 1970
Mark Noll 126 1983
Neil Barnes 160 1993
Clay Gable 171 2009

Spring sports[edit]

Girls' soccer[edit]

Much like their male counterparts, the Dallastown girls' soccer team has enjoyed much recent success. The Wildcats have four Division 1 titles, including three straight in 2009, 2010, and 2011.[58] In each of these three years, the girls have gone on to win the YAIAA Tournament.[58]

Baseball[edit]

Dallastown Baseball has enjoyed moderate success in its history, including 6 Division 1 titles since 1992. In 2011, the Wildcats were runners-up in the YAIAA Tournament.[58]
