Detroit High School is a great small town country school. It's amazing how a small community works around a school like this. The academics obviously aren't as great or thorough as a bigger school districts is. Detroit has teachers come and go a lot, as well as coaches. Overall though, it's a great little school.

I like the science curriculum. I learned a lot in all my science based classes. However, I would like to see a wider availability of higher level classes.
I rate the athletic opportunities a bad rate. I wasn't involved in any of the sports at this school. Their wasn't enough variety, if you ask me. Volleyball and football, and baseball and softball. I love volleyball but i wasn't excepted because I registered to school late. So to tell you the truth I didn't have any involvement with the sports at this school. The volleyball girls didn't except me for who i was. I was an outsider to this school.
