I have been at DII since freshman year and it has been a wonderful experience! I have made life long friends and teachers who I can always email and visit. I have been here for four years and it was the best decision I ever made. DII has prepared me for the real world and taught me to be independent, as well as logical. I have had many opportunities at DII and I cannot express the gratitude I have for it. I have created a mark at DII with my academics and involvement in the school. I appreciate the neighborhood and the willingness to strive for success!

The counselors are amazing and go out of their way to help students to the best of their ability.
There’s little to no clubs.
There’s not a lot of classes to take at this school.
My experience at this school has been completely different every year. There has been schedule changes, the loss of many teachers and in consequence, a loss in lots of classes. This school only offers regular and AP classes now. No honors. No IB. The AP classes can be very difficult, which isn’t bad for the students that can handle it but for those that are in between, honors classes are highly needed.
There’s a new learning program called Summit and I’ve only heard bad things from the students who are in it. Which is understandable because they are learning from a computer instead of the actual teachers.
In conclusion, I was in love with this school my freshman year (2015-2016) but with everything that has changed, let’s just say I’m really looking forward to graduating.
Throughout my four years at Disney II Magnet High School, I have seen such a close community. The school is approximately less than 700 students, which makes sense why the school is connected and almost everyone gets along. There are several AP courses offered, but there’s not enough for those students who want to be challenged. I think that the community is very diverse where people who go there have several background origins and it’s very intriguing to hear their different stories. Overall, Disney II is an average school trying to rise in academics.
