It's an average school, could provide better food, and more interaction between teachers on understanding the subject being taught. Cleanliness is not prioritized to what it could. We need more experienced teachers who have a good technique of teaching, or at well prepared for the school year. Safety could be improved.

Lunch food! Definitely one of the low lights of high school. Our food was okay but some foods needed some flavor because most of the food there is flavorless. Not everything was bad. I did get homecoming princess my freshman year and that was such an uplifting, amazing year for me. Not only did I get it freshman year, but I also got it my junior year of high school. I did cheerleading and that was such an awesome experience. What makes my school unique is that even though it is a small school, our basketball team is really good and I think that's really spectacular. I wouldn't change to go to any other school, because my schools size is great and the people there are nice and great as well.
Del Norte Highschool has been an average school for me . The people there are very generous and I haven’t seen any signs of bullying so far, but the teachers could be better. I believe some teachers at Del Norte High don’t teach as well as they could or should.
