Before doing so, we took a closer look at Sir Francis Drake (SFD), and can only say that I am thankful that ...  Read more

My daughter is thriving in this thought provocing environment, has a kind, go-getter group of friends, and the balance between academics, sports and extracurricular activities is well balanced. There always seems to be enough time to accomplish Drake's requirements. ...  Read more

Drake is the greatest because the staff and students sing and laugh and enjoy being there. We work hard and have fun. All students are respected; no one is bullied and it is definitely not cool to use slurs.

Everyone I have met here at Drake, both staff and students, is kind, respectful, and cares about learning. Students in our community are taught the values of tolerance and community service. Most people here seem genuinely happy to be here learning, and that is a wonderful thing.

The teachers care about the students. The community cares about the school. The students are open-minded and take risks. I think the students that come from this school will make a difference in the world.

Drake High School was a great experience for me because of the great teachers in all subjects. They give their students time, attention and the opportunity to succeed. Their classes prepared me to get 'A's in college. The only thing that needs work at Drake is the unhelpful counseling dept. (Responding ...  Read more
