Danbury School District Reviews
Danbury High School is truly what you as a student makes of it. With a variety of clubs, arts, sports, and extracurriculars, DHS has a way for every student to get involved. The administrators are passionate about what they do and reflect student feedback to make DHS a positive experience for the students. As students, we know our best interests are in the Principals mind as he works endlessly and passionately to make DHS the best it can be for attendees. Overall, SAT and college prep could be better emphasized within the curriculum. But the diverse and interesting classes offered at a variety of difficulty levels prepare students, nonetheless, for life after graduation. I am lucky to have formed strong friendships and relationships with my peers and teachers and believe that the "cons" of DHS have taught me values and lessons that I will take with me to college. I am thankful for DHS and all that it has done for me, GO HATTERS!
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!
It's pretty decent, but could be better for the high student count. If there was just a little more money for the school, it would be tremendously better. Unfortunately, these funds are not available. However, it is a very diverse school, and the teachers are great. Academics are good, especially if you try, but there are not many of the best universities that look at Danbury. (Usually one student accepted per ivy/esteemed university.) The elementary schools are a great learning environment, and you can have great advantages if you circumnavigate it correctly.
