Danville Area Senior High School Reviews
I really liked the academic challenges I was put against in Danville. I think the school offers a wide range of courses that are beneficial to college. However, now that I am in college I wish I would've had a couple more classes to expand my knowledge. I have found myself wishing there was a "biology 2" class in Danville to make my current college biology class less difficult. I also wish there was an "Anatomy and Physiology 2" class to better prepare students who are planning on going into a medical profession.
High school is a big change for students coming from middle school. One thing I’ll never forget is that my first day of high school was so scary for me. I quickly learned I had nothing to be scared off, however, as the teachers were incredibly understanding and many older peers were willing to help me find my way to a class, the locker room, etc. It only took me one day to realize that the staff was extremely friendly and that high school wasn’t going to be so bad.
Danville High School was a great learning environment. The teachers are very active in the lives of the students and really do care for their well being. The education criteria is strong. I felt very prepared when coming to college. The school expects a lot which is why they have the results they do. I think something that could change though is the involvement of the guidance councilors with the kids. I barely knew mine and although I never really needed to talk with her about things it would be beneficial for someone that is struggling with someone to be comfortable with the person that they are supposed to be talking to. Getting to know the guidance councilors as soon as the student enters freshman year would be helpful.
