Danville Area Senior High School Reviews
Even though Danville Area Senior High School seems to me to have one of the least diverse student bodies, the academics offered at the school are great: numerous AP and honor courses guided by some teachers who truly care about your personal progress in their classes; the same idea applies to the clubs and activities at Danville Area Senior High School as well although it would great if some students did not hold multiple offices across different clubs to give other students a chance to participate in a leadership role. Another big complaint about Danville Area Senior High School is its quality of food; even though I have never bought lunch there, from what I have observed, the food isn't all that great.
I enjoyed attending high school in Danville. The guidance counselors and several teachers were extremely helpful in preparing me for college. I took several AP courses in high school which gave me a feel for college and more credits before my first year. I participated in band and track. Both activities were taken very seriously at Danville high school. The school lacked diversity. This made it difficult to transition from a small high school to a large public university with over 12,000 students. The school also lacked well-rounded teachers. Certain departments like math and english excelled in preparing kids and producing high scores on standardized testing. Other departments like the sciences seemed to fall behind. In all of my science courses over the four years I never felt prepared to discuss or explain the material. Reading textbooks seemed more helpful than the person in front of the chalkboard.
Danville is a close niche town and so is the school. Even if somebody doesn't know your name, they recognize your face. There are a ton of great teachers who are willing to help you in and out of school. Many teachers are also very involved in the school sports. The entire town is a football town and promenade is an event where the town comes out to see all the dressed up high schoolers of the town.
