I love that many of our teachers know us through our work we do and talking to us to find our opinions on many things. I hear many teachers tell me that our administration is quite good to them and always keeps them up to date! Additionally, if our administration tries something new and it does not work out, they admit their fault and try something new.

I moved to Danville my freshman year. I really just fell in love with the culture and school spirit Danville has. Danville has really changed me and has challenged me both mentally and physically and I am grateful for the wonderful staff and everyone who has made me the person I am today. Honestly there is nothing I can say that is negative about Danville School system, they really prepare you for life well beyond high school.
I transferred from a private school, Danville Christian Academy, in my Junior year. Transferring from a private to public school is a drastic change. The first thing I noticed about Danville Schools is the warm welcoming and the encouragement from all staff members. Junior year to currently in Senior year, I have grown a close relationship to a majority of the faculty and staff. If I could go back and change time, I would have chosen to come to the Danville Independent Schools for my previous years of education. The only thing I would like to see be different in the Danville Schools is the faculty and staff to have a close relationship with all of the student body. Having at least one close relationship to a staff member is very important because the student can walk up to them anytime and talk to this specific staff member. Not only in high school, but in all places I think it’s in need to have a close relationship with at least one person in the operation.
