My experience in Delano High School is exceptionally good. The teachers are very helpful to students and sacrifice their time after school for the students to study at their classroom. The school offers AP classes and Dual Enrollment classes, which are an advantage for students when they go to college. The students are very nice and I never had any problems to other students, which is good. I only have arguments with other students when we do a debate for American Government, Calculus, and English, and the debates were fun to begin with as we increase our knowledge and learning for us. Delano High School is one of the best schools in the US and I would recommend students to go there!

The culture and tradition at Delano High School is exemplary! The teachers are passionate about their students, and the staff is extremely helpful and devoted to the kids attending Delano High. The diversity Delano High contains show the true devotion and passion they offer for a variety of students.
Delano High School offers many opportunities to students in order to help them graduate and succeed in life. The school has resources and prorams that other schools may not such as the Dual-enrollment program, which gives students the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit through the college level classes taught by qualified teachers. I personally took advantage of this program, which significantly helped and pushed me towards the top of my class. The only problems I find is that I find that some lower-level students are misunderstood and not given as many opportunities than higher-level ones, so they consequently may not feel inspired to go to college. There is a visible difference between the way low and high level teachers are. Many teachers who teach the lower level classes are not as passionate and willing to go out of their way to help their students as compared to teachers of higher level classes.
