Teachers dont teach class very well. Its a very unsafe school. 0 diversity. Hardly any college readiness. School is poorly managed. Administration is horrible. Mold and Asbestos everywhere! Roach and rat problem. When it rains it floods and ceiling pieces fall on the floor. Electrical problems. There were terrorist threats and electrical fires. Security sucks. Overall this school district is trash money is spent on useless things and DRHS IS A HELL HOLE.

Del Rio High School (DRHS) is a school that really cares about students’ attendance. The principal works with students to keep them motivated to attend school. That’s one thing that is good about DRHS. However, it could do a lot to improve its education. DRHS offers classes but they are limited to certain periods. This static form of scheduling classes does not allow for students to take the classes they desire, leaving them with “filler” classes that may be boring and pointless. Additionally, the restrooms at DRHS are outdated and dirty. They should be remodeled to be more modern and kept more sanitary.
