I like the school because of the small town feel and small class sizes. The thing that could change is the amount offered toward education. This would be programs offered, more class options, and more vocational programs.

Danbury High School is a very small 3A school in Danbury, Texas. One thing that's great about this school is each graduating class averages at about 55 students. This means there's around 250 student in the entire high school. Less students means smaller classes which allows more one on one time with teachers. Another great thing about Danbury is the heart. I've never been to a more supportive school other than Danbury. If there's a sporting event going on, everyone's there. If someone's going through a rough time, everyone's trying to figure out what they can do to help. Some disadvantages to a small school like Danbury are that the majority of teachers are only teaching so they can coach. They're more focused on athletics and extracurricular activities than academics. There also isn't much opportunity here which makes it a hard transition from high school to college.
I would say Danbury is only for a certain crowd of people. Most of the school knows each other and would make it hard for new people to come in. Also to improve the teaching staff, so they actually teach us.
