The teachers are very understanding and helpful. There is a lot of cultural diversity and all of the people are wonderful and nice. The only thing wrong or on the downside about the school is that they are not getting enough funding to improve programs, however that is not really in their control so besides that, it is an amazing school

Going into Delavan-Darien High School I wasn't sure what to expect, but what I found was great. The food, while not five star quality, remained very good throughout my four years of attendance. Most of the teachers were very like-able and most students had a friendship with at least one or two teachers. However, the only downside was that the rules kept getting more and more strict. While I understand the need to protect students and maintain order, Installing cameras throughout the school seemed a bit much.
At Delavan Darien High School I had the opportunity to gain many experiences and had a chance to be involved in many clubs. Though out my 4 years at Delavan I was able to be part of the football team and the school FFA. Though both programs I really had a chance to see what this school is about. During football season it was amazing seeing the fans in the stands and the fans all made up by all of your friends and family that you see every day. having the people you are so close to supporting you like that is a feeling that is indescribable. In FFA I got the chance to see that heart of Delavan and the hard-working people in this community. Coming from Chicago I never had a chance to see what farming is all about. and what I got to see and experience in that program is something I will never forget and I will always cherish. None of these experiences would not have been possible if it were not for the people and the community of Delavan.
