What high school did Jeffrey Dahmer go to?

Dahmer was born on May 21, 1960, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

He later relocated to Bath Township, Ohio, where he attended Revere High School.

During that time, he was seen as an average student but he did not go unnoticed and would even pull pranks on his classmates.

In the documentary Jeffrey Dahmer: Mind of a Monster, his former classmate, Mike Krukal, explained that he would find a way to get into group yearbook photos for clubs he was not a part of, including the National Honor Society.

“In our senior year, they took photographs of all the groups; they took photographs of the sports groups and the clubs and everything else. And Jeff Dahmer got in group photos that he was not a member of,” Krukal explained, via LAD Bible.

Due to his presence in the photo, many began to wonder if he was a part of the National Honor Society but the New York Times reported in 1991 that his grades ranged from A’s to D’s, which fell short of honor society standards.

The New York Times later reported that he would also fake epileptic seizures and that his pranks were so popular that some classmates recalled: “Don’t do a Dahmer” as a popular phrase.

After graduating from Revere he then studied briefly at Ohio State University.

Did Jeffrey Dahmer go to prom?

While Dahmer might have been somewhat of a class clown, he was not smooth with the ladies.

However, he did manage to get a date to the prom in 1978.

At the time, he went to the school dance with 16-year-old Bridget Geiger.

Shortly after his arrest in 1991, a local newspaper sat down with Geiger who recalled what it was like to go to prom with Dahmer and why she fled from his house.

″He was scared to death of girls,″ she said at the time, via the Associated Press.

″He was scared to death I was going to kiss him.″

Geiger then explained that she had gone back to his house afterward for a party, but things did not go as planned.

She recalled there being ″no music, no food or drinks” adding that it was a “nerd party.”

“There were seven people at the whole thing,” she continued.

After the teenagers got settled, Geiger then became uncomfortable after a kid said “Let’s call Lucifer” and the flames on the candles went out.

As a result, she fled the house and had not seen him since.
