DSISD has a great academic base with teachers dedicated to many diverse honors and AP classes. The school has a small population of unique individuals who seek challenge beyond what an average traditional high school can offer. The classes are relevant to today's society with advancing technology in computer science and engineering. The teachers are extremely kind and understanding. Overall a great school.
Competency and project-based learning system is very nice, unique school. Communication kinda sucks. Good idea for a school, kinda poorly implementEd.
