There is so much about Donna High School that I, as well as many of my school-mates, would love to see change. For starters, if students were supplied with proper resources that have been updated to at least this decade, then that would be a huge win. The Fine Arts Department is full of amazingly talented students, but is ridiculously underfunded, with mold growing in the ceiling (at least the classes that have a ceiling), and poor security. Meanwhile the Athletic Department gets pumped with funds so players can have expensive equipment and a statue built in the name of an alumni. Not to mention the food is more than often preposterous. I am grateful for the staff that come in early and leave late in order to maintain the school grounds. The administration's care for the school reflects in the way it cares about it's students. There are more than a handful of faculty that deserve praise and recognition because they believe in our potential.

From the beginning of my attendance at Donna High School it has been nothing but a welcoming, diverse, and spontaneous experience. I will have to admit that due to judgement at first sight many don't view this school the same. Due to a small town idiotic reputation others view it in a bad manner. However, through my personal experience the staff in incredibly helpful into pushing every student among a greater future, the cooking staff is always kind and make our free meals the best among what they are given , budget wise the district doesn't have much but for what it counts they definitely use it wisely. This school has given me the best memories with friends, a steady education, a safe
zone to gain knowledge , among all the counselors getting you college ready, and teachers not allowing you to stay behind but to acquire higher standards. As, for sports and activities they highlight the point that within hard work comes success so always push for greatness.
The fascinating thing about Donna High School is the way the school opens the eyes of it’s students towards excellence. Although some students don’t take education as seriously, there are others, such as myself, who try with the best of their ability to achieve success. It’s great, but it’s difficult to do so when there aren’t students who disrupt your education instruction time. The problem should be assessed.
