Where did Jeffrey Dahmer go to high school?

Jeffrey Dahmer attended Revere High School in Bath Township near Richfield, Ohio.

Dahmer attended the school in the 1970s and graduated in the class of 1978.

One of Dahmer’s classmates, John ‘Derf’ Backderf, wrote a graphic novel titled My Friend Dahmer which detailed their friendship and experiences together at school.

Revere High was first opened to students in January 1953 and on several occasions, most recently in 2015, has been named one of the top 1,000 schools in the United States by US News & World Report.

In 2020, Revere students moved into a new building as the old facility had become old and dilapidated and the cost of constructing a new building was deemed lower than renovating the existing facility.

What college did he attend?

After graduating from high school in 1978, Jeffrey Dahmer studied very briefly at Ohio State University.

Ohio State is considered one of the most prestigious colleges in the United States and notable alumni include athlete Jesse Owens, actor JK Simmons, Twenty One Pilots singer Tyler Joseph and co- Wikipedia founder Larry Sanger.

Dahmer, however, only spent three months at Ohio State before dropping out. His father then persuaded him to join the US Army, but he was eventually discharged after two years.

How was Jeffrey Dahmer as a student?

From his freshman year at Revere High School, Dahmer was considered an outcast according to Biographics.org.

Dahmer was seen as calm and polite by staff, but also staged pranks, known as “doing a Dahmer.” He briefly played clarinet in orchestra class and was reportedly an accomplished tennis player.

However, Dahmer drank alcohol at school and smuggled beer and hard liquor by hiding it inside his jacket lining.

Throughout his time at Revere, Dahmer’s grades remained average until 1977, when his drinking spiraled out of control.

Dahmer graduated in 1978 and committed his first murder just weeks after leaving school.

In August 1978, he enrolled at Ohio State University, hoping to major in business.

But he would only complete three months at OSU before dropping out. His time in college was said to be unproductive due to persistent alcohol abuse when his GPA before leaving was only 0.45/4.0.
