D-O High is the best school. Great environment to learn. The Teachers take the time to make sure you understand everything. The Guidance department is wonderful, they take pride in what they do to help students get in the fight classes, keep parents up to part about they child.

I really enjoy attending Denmark-Olar High School. I've learned so much being in the district. I graduated valedictorian, and I can always go back to the school to volunteer, or ask for help which will get done with no problems or hesitation.
I excelled in all of my classes and rarely had issues with staff and other students. However, I'd like to see the school enhance its appearance. Te buildings are older and need improvement.
