Donna Independent School District Reviews
I entered the Donna District as a junior. At first I was bummed because I had no friends. After a week or so, I started making a lot of new friends! I am now in my senior year and I'm happy to say really enjoy being here. Teachers help you as much as they can and passing is all up to you!
I loved the small class sizes that allowed teachers to keep control of the class, therefore allowing us to learn more efficiently. I spent my whole academic life in this district and have always loved it but I feel it could be better in funding, as we pay a lot of taxes but receive little funding for essential programs for seniors. Overall, we are not college ready, we don't have nearly enough capability to help all the seniors for college and by then it is too late, so that is something that could be implemented early on.
Donna High School was underrated, everyone made it seem like it was a corrupt and "Ghetto" school but it isn't always like that. The only reason it was viewed liked that is because of the location, and the number of students being crowded into a school that was meant for a little less than 2000. Once Donna North opened you could see how much space was freed and how many fewer conflicts there was a school year. Teachers were honestly probably the coolest part about school it wasn't that they didn't care because they did but they knew half of these students barely even wanted to be there so they used new techniques to get us involved in the lesson.
