I like how nice the environment is in the school. All of the teachers are very nice and can teach the students well. I would like to see change in technology. De Smet High School is behind on it. Great school!

De Smet High School is a great school. They prepare us very well for college. The building is great. The only problem with this school is the sports because some of the coaches favor students if they personally know them. Overall, it is a great school.
I graduated a few years back and overall I had an okay experience. Most of the teachers try their best to get students ready for college. But the one negative thing I have is that the bullying there can get pretty bad if you drive from a different town to attend there.
