Danville Area Senior High School Reviews
The time I have spent here so far was fairly positive. I enjoyed most of my classes and teachers and felt like I was appropriately challenged in them. School functions were always fun to attend and to be a part of. I just wish there was more overall communication. I never feel like I know and understand fully the policies or actions my administrators are implementing. I know that it isn't my place to know everything that is going on, but when it is something that directly affects me, I feel as if it I deserve to know the details. Especially when it involves my own money and it practically disappears after I hand it over for a purchase and never receive my order.
The Danville HS is a wonderful learning environment suited perfectly for students planning to attend college/ further education or get a job after graduation. The array of classes in all departments are taught by a passionate and knowledgeable facility. Tools for the future, such as technical skills and resume writing are integrated into the core curriculum. Academic and Art related departments are diverse enough to shape everyone into a different person, not just a duplicate of each other. The Administrative team is composed of individuals who truly care about each students' success and not the school reputation.
Danville Area Senior High school is a wonderful place to attend. All of the teachers are very nice and you can go up to them at any time, and they will help you out with anything that you are having trouble with. There are also a variety of clubs and sports that you can sign up for. The school is also very up to date, and the art room has a great kiln for the pottery that the students make. The high school also just got a turf field with a new track, that all the sports can play on. The school also just got a new auditorium and tennis courts put in for future students to use.
