I've seen huge gains in administrative leadership. I have had 100% cooperation with all my children's needs - from extended illness issues to advanced placement courses. My oldest earned a very high score on college placement testing which in turn earned LOTS of scholarship funds from his private college. Also once there he is doing VERY well having been very well prepared by DDHS.
There was a new schedule implemented this year that made the students take less classes. Also the AP and Fine Arts classes were booked at the same time.
I think that the DDHS is a fantastic place! The teachers are always willing to help out my child whenever he needs it. I could not disagree with the other comments made before.
When children fail it is a reflection of the teachers who teach. Just because a failing notice is sent to a parent does not mean the teachers job is done. I do not know of any job that would accept a failure as a job well done.
The school climate set by the building administrators is the lowest it has every been. Students have lost pride in their school.
