Overall, I had a great experience at Donna High. The teachers were great. If one has a problem then they would talk to them and it would be resolved right then and there. The cafeteria food wasn't all that bad. There was hype for sports at all time, I guess I can say the school spirit was amazing! Although, there is one thing that Donna High lacks and that is the dress code. It got worse and worse every year I attended. For example, there was one rule where you could not wear black nail polish? Ridiculous!
Tradition is the pride of our school. It hails as the only school that holds a football state championship title in the Rio Grande Valley. The school is lead by a student body elected Indian Sweetheart that serves as representative of our school. Academically, we struggle a bit. We are a small community and resources are limited when it comes to keeping up with the technological world.
