Del Norte High School Reviews
Review Del Norte High School
There is admirable inclusiveness within the students on campus. The teachers are willing to do as much as they can to help the students succeed, even if that means staying in at lunch or after school. The school provides many other ways for students to get help with after school tutorial times to further ask your teachers questions and offer peer tutoring aid. The students are encouraged to discover their strengths and weaknesses on their own and learn how to get the academic help they need by themselves, in preparation for college and the future. There are numerous ways to stay connected with others through means of extracurricular activities, such as clubs, sports, drama and choir. The school classrooms are not huge, leading to more one-on-one time with students and teachers. The library contains books, computers, printers, and study rooms which you can reserve for group projects or a quiet work space.
Being ranked 39th statewide, Del Norte is great in terms of staff and their interactions with their students. The trimester system here is great, and allows you to fit more classes in the year and spend more time with your teachers, compared to the semester system. Although they are very limited in classes that provide life necessities such as home economics and personal finance, they focus a lot on Advance Placement classes. The overall environment is friendly and welcoming, and even for a new student like me, I found my time her enjoyable.
My experience at Del Norte was unreal; my whole work ethic changed because of this school. I lived in Kentucky for middle school and moved to California for high school. The culture at Del Norte integrated not only academics but also sports and community service. The atmosphere of this school pushed me to work even harder and maintain a well- rounded lifestyle. The faculty encouraged us to work hard and concentrate on learning the material rather than focus on the grade. With their encouragement, I was able to balance sports, school, and other volunteering projects.
