I think that the school as a whole is beautiful and they have some of the best staff ever. The guidance department is what got me through my years at DHS. I loved the teachers and adults that helped pave the way for me!

Danvers High School has a lot of benefits. The teachers are very helpful and allow you to ask any questions and they will answer them. The classrooms and whole school is cleaned and always has a cleaning maintenance. The school work is challenging but there are people to always help any students. Sports are also very well constructed and coaches are previously experienced with the sport. Anyone can play sports too!
I love the community of Danvers, and the high school is an extension of that community. I play on the high school soccer team, and it feels like the whole town comes out to support the team, all of our teams in fact. I love the teachers at the high school, they genuinely care if we understand what is being taught and they go out of their way to make sure that we are doing well. I have had great teachers throughout my entire education here in Danvers and feel very lucky and confident to now move on to college.
