I liked how the district staff is always making sure students get what they need. They truly exceed my expectations! Something I would like to see changed though is their one-year sit-out rule for student athletes. It is unfair for students who choose to go to another school other than the one that have been chosen for them to go to miss out on 1 whole year of sports, where they can use that time to practice and get to know the school's team better, just because the student(s) choose to attend another school within the district because the student prefers the other school better.

All of the Schools in the DJUHSD provide that possibility of striving the attending students towards the best path possible, the welcoming vibe this school district gives off is the best in Kern County and will continue to improve on remaining that way!
My experience at Delano High school was absolutely tremendous! Many educational choices and have my classes to prepare you for college. There is one thing I feel Delano high district could improve on and that is community involvement, start connecting and rejoicing with our people in our community.
