Danville High School Reviews
Danville High School is full of adversity and learning but also violence and crime. At Danville, we have a little bit of everything as far as academics go. We have many AP classes to offer from chemistry to psychology to economics. We also have a wide variety of fuel enrollment courses, honors classes and classes adapted for special needs. We also have many great teachers who are ready to teach and love to be there. They are willing to stay after school to help any student in need. I’m all of these aspects, the high school is amazing. However, you are also likely to hear about or see a fight almost every day. We have had many cases of police coming to the school in order to arrest one of our students. The school does not always feel very safe because of all this crime and chaos. All in all, DHS is a great school for learning and achieving great things but the safety factor there is lacking.
I’ve been attending Danville High School for the past 4 years and overall it’s a pretty average school. It’s extremely diverse and the lunches are above average which is amazing considering how low our funds are. One downside would have to be how some teachers act, though. Some of them seem to not care about their job or their students which makes things harder at times but besides that I’d recommend this school to anyone in town.
For the most part, I have enjoyed my experience at Danville High School. I would like to see more student safety measures adopted. I would also like to see more clubs introduced to cater to those with different interests. The food in the cafeteria is surprisingly good!
