Danville Area School District Reviews

Danville was the perfect choice for me when it came to high school. The teachers really care about your education and are always there to help you. Danville is where I finally decided what my major in college would be. Thanks to my nutrition teacher, she helped guide me through my classes, even giving me independent learning experience. This is high school so there are some cliques, but on my first day as a new Danville student, many different people made it a point to talk to you. You'll fit right in!

Danville Area School District offers a wide variety of classes and extracurricular activities that enable students to explore multiple areas of interest instead of being confined to a singular career path like other schools. I have taken science math, English, Spanish, and social studies based AP classes and because of them I feel prepared for college and the workload of college classes. In addition, the numerous athletics teams and clubs have helped me discover more interests and broaden my skill sets through athletics, community service, speech and debate, and business competitions.
I enjoyed the pride and culture Danville had to offer. The confidence in our town and our atheltics never lacked, while we had a great sense of commodity amongst the males, since most of us had grown up together. The facilities had been undergoing many renovations that continued beyond my senior year, and is one of the most modern high schools, and best multi-sport stadiums in the state.
