Donovan Senior High School Reviews
Overall, I have had a really good experience at this high school. I have been allowed to participate in all the clubs and organizations. Having these opportunities has helped me to establish who I am and what I believe in. I know what I love to do and I am able to take part in doing so at this school. The only improvement would have to be the need to keep teachers at the school. There have been far too many new teachers in the short period that I have been here.
Our extracurricular activities are very small in options. But, the school tries to do what it can with such a small amount of students and faculty. Our track team has been close to being cancelled due to the small amount interested, but the coach was able to convince enough for a group of 6 so that one student advanced to State two years ago. Sports and the musical takes up the majority of after-school practices throughout the year. The administration has always encouraged all of the organizations and clubs we have been able to participate in. If you can get enough students to have a club and and teacher, you are all set!
I like my school as a whole. There are less than 200 in the 7th-12th grade building, so it feels like a family. Like a family, it can be dis-functional with everyone knowing everyone else's lives, but most seem to try to help out each other. The only difficulty I have is the small amount of classes to choose from due to the reduced size of students in each class. I love the ability to really produce a relationship with my teachers though. I am the only student in my calculus class, and it's like I have a personal tutor! I would go her again in a heart beat!
