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.
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.
