    As a current student in Andy Dekaney high school I cant begin to explain how many people judge by the first impression or should I say first semester. I agree the school needs changes including teachers in order for the school to be run better. Although academically this school isn't the best. Some teachers do care but its up to the students to make that decisions as well. This school also offers great sports opportunities and extra-curricular activities. I just personally think this school needs to change how things are being run.

    I am a student a dekaney and this school is horrible. Every class I attend is out of control with rowdy and disrespectful students that ALWAYS interrupt other students and espically the teacher. I had asked to get switched out of my Spanish class and the counsler was very unhelpful. Overall I dislike this school.

    My advice to anyone of any kind of substance putting there kid or kids in Dekaney think twice. I made the mistake of re-enrolling my kids back in the school because I heard of all the changes that has happened. They became stricter yes but they need to know whats going on with kids before they judge the parents. This playing sides with the kids is not working.

    I am a very involved parent school work meeting teachers addressing issues as soon as they arise supported in extracurriculum activities and yet the school administrator teachers staff are very reluctant to converse with parents. We as parents can only do so much from where we are Spring ISD as a whole just don't want to work with parents they want to treat parents as if they are the students in their schools classes. I done my 13 years of school and have been bless with three beautiful children and two grandchildren my children will obey when therefore if the school will converse with me then we can work together for what is best for the youth. Meet in a median that will work for all parties. Get with it Spring ISD. So time out for all this parent don't do this or that or parents need to do this or that do your part and work with the parents to provide the youth a stable safe educational fun learning environment. And There You Have It!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a beautiful school and changes have been made in 4 years. However the staff needs to be more supportive to the parents. They are sufficient in returning phones call to the parent timely on issues. I still have an open issue but hey who am I just a parent. They need to realize being friends with the students is not a priority. The students need more time for lunch and getting to and from classes. Eating lunch in 10 minutes can cause upper digestive issues. To overcrowded. I hope the district lines change so they can evenly spread the dynamics of the school.

    This school like any other school is only as good as it's school community which is made up of teachers administration students AND parents. As an involved parent I have seen my students excel both in the classroom and in their multiple extracurricular activities. Calling ALL parents!!!! It's time for us to collectively involve ourselves in the lives of the children God blessed us with. As you are involved you hold your child as well as the teachers and administration accountable for the best possible experience for your child. It's easy to write a negative review and ridicule the school but it's a lot harder to do it when you are a part of the solution instead of the problem.

    The administration is clueless as to how to run a school with this demographic. Walk down the halls during class and you would see what I mean. This school like any other school struggling to get their kids passing the TAKS focuses instruction almost exclusively to the test. The middle and elementary schools that feed into Dekaney ill-prepare these students for high school (and beyond) and Dekaney simply maintains this trend.

    A lot of the teachers are truly great it's an amazingly beautiful school. The extra curricular like fine arts are beyond excellent like the band color guard and the dekaney diamonds. Dekaney is on it's way to excellece both academically and in every other way possible

    First of all the school is way overcrowded not have have seniors there. Second the faculty is not all that great. My son came home with a letter from one of the teachers and a couple of her words were misspelled. How are you a teacher and you have misspelled words....go figure that one out! The architecture is great but the school itself is not great - very unorganized.

    I am currently a freshman at Dekaney High School and im loving it for the most part. ever since we've been on the news the teachers have really cracked down and i must say the changes are good but its kinda wierd how they go from trying to be your best friend and holding your hand to cracking the whip and treating us like were prisoners get it together faculty

    i am currently attending this school and it is not a great school to transfer to....i feel very out of place as if i'm not wanted here and as a student i deserve more...... but the sports are great i would love playing ball anywhere

    I go to Dekaney High School. Some of the teachers aren't really that good. Some of the teachers really do care about the students. The extracurricular activities are amazing and the school's architecture is outstanding. Of course Dekaney has the problems other schools have like fights and disrespectful students and stuff like that but over all it's a good school.

    the school is well equiped but some of the teachers dont realy care about the students they will be nice or take control when the A.P. shows up but other wise teachers act like they didnt see some thing or if something is about to happen they stop it and say 'dont fight in my class do it in the hall or in the parking lot where your friends can see' also they also take up phones and make you up 15 dallers that makes no sence at all someone could be making a distraction or someone can just be very unfurtunet and the student that did the distuption doesnt even get a slap on the wrist there looking for an easy way to make money not drugs or wepons i say that because i wittnessed a phone be turned on by the administrator the student reacted but it didnt matter.
