What I really liked about the Danbury School District is the emphasis on diversity that was placed within the schools. Additionally, I really enjoyed the activities and clubs that were offered throughout my high school career; there was always something for everybody and even if there wasn't a club or activity someone wasn't particularly interested in, they could create their own!

As a current student in the Danbury School system I have seen many of the changes they have made to increase student development over the years. They have provided a multitude of extra support such as tutors, for students who appear to be struggling in their academics. As the student enrollment numbers have went up; particularly at the high school, so have the amount of electives that the students have access to. Overall I believe that the teachers and administration in all the schools across the district have made tremendous strides in ensuring that each student gets a learning experience that will help them for years to come. This is a mission that many other schools across the state do not appear to have in mind. Finally the amount of diversity amount the population allows students to interact with so many students from across the world, another area where schools across the state appear to be deeply lacking.
I have enjoyed my time as a student at Danbury High School due to the plethora of opportunities that it provides. There is a large variety of courses that students can take, as well as an immense amount of extracurricular programs. Additionally, since the school is so diverse in personalities, race, and backgrounds, it provides a unique learning experience both inside and outside the classroom. Overall, I feel quite fortunate to have been able to attend Danbury High School.
