I've really enjoyed my teachers this past school year. Each and every one of my classes has had a teacher who is dedicated to their students and their passion for what they teach. Moving here from GA I didn't really know what to expect, the facilities weren't quite at par with what I was used to but the school really does utilize what it does have. The teachers work really hard as a community to enrich student lives and further their higher education. I truly have appreciated the support in academics I have received this year. One thing I would like to see change is our school spirit. There are hardly any students who dress up and participate in spirit weeks or assemblies. I am excited to be apart of the solution and show Damonte pride this upcoming school year!

Being at Damonte Ranch High School the past 3 years has been a relatively wonderful experience. Of course with every school there are problems, but my school has very few. This school has amazing teachers who strive everyday to help any student they can ,however a lot of them choose favorites, which make learning harder for some other students. There are clicks like any other school which makes it a little harder to bond with others and clubs are relatively hard to find or get into. There is an enormous student involvement at this school including student tutors available and a large amount of students participate in sporting events (homecoming games are the best at our school). Overall, I would recommend DRHS to any student and with this school you will definitely get a great quality education!
Damonte Ranch High School is an amazing school to attend for your high school experience. Both my older sister and I attended this school for all four years and we each had very positive experiences. Damonte has been around since 2003 and has only grown and gotten better as the years have gone on. They have, what they call the PAC program, or the performing arts center program, where students can audition for and get advanced training/education for dance, drama, band, orchestra, and choir. This program has been running since 2014 and has majorly grown as the years have gone by. I’ve participated in the dance section of this program and I love their drive to not only work with students to be creative in their dance form but also connect as a loyal, strong community together. Overall, the faculty at the school are very intelligent and hard working people/teachers who make sure to help students both in classes and in life. I couldn’t be any happier with attending Damonte.
