History

The school began in 1902. By the 1930s the school had moved to a building on Slocum Road (referred to as the Elmer Poole School for a short while), which is now used as the town hall. In 1955 a new school was built next door, on the corner of Hawthorne Street, with the building being expanded twice, in 1965 and 1981. In 2000, the school was moved to its new location at the end of Bakerville Road, at the junction of Russells Mills Road, on the former farmland of the King family, with the former high school now being used as the middle school.

The school gained national attention in 1993 when it was the scene of student violence when a student was murdered in a classroom, despite the school having no history of similar behavior. Karter Reed, Gator Collet, both 16, and Nigel Thomas, 15 were charged with first degree murder.[4]

Music Department

The Dartmouth High School Marching Band was a Division 5 winner of both USSBA and NESBA in 2003, 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011. Additionally, they have many other titties in NESBA, MICCA, and formerly in EMBA. The group has also performed at the 1996 Tournament of Roses Parade, as well as several other festivals and Magic Music Days at the Walt Disney World Resort. Notably, in 2008, 2009, and 2010, the band won first place at the USSBA National Marching Band Championship in Annapolis, beating 16 other bands. In addition to the band, the percussion and colorguard have performed in the winter competition season, where the Dartmouth High Winter Percussion has consistently placed in the top 3 since entering the competition in 1998: winning the Winter Guard International Percussion Scholastic World Championships in 1998, 1999, 2008, and 2009, with 2nd place finishes in 2000, 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012, and 3rd place finishes in 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, and 2010.
