20 Parent Reviews for Daniel Hand High School

This school provides rigorous learning and excellent learning environment. However, I do want everyone to know that teachers do tend to be biased and show favoritism. Also, the school does not offer a hell many courses, but there are enough to make everyone happy. People here are really nice and use ...  Read more

The best steroids for student athletes in the state. Particularly the football program. A1 ranking well deserved.

Two of my children attended the Madison Schools and I can definitely say that they do an adequate job educating students. In other words, there is nothing special happening here, despite the excessive and shameless self-promotion engaged in by school officials and residents alike. Two of my other children ...  Read more

Daniel Hand High School provides an atmosphere only enriches students. The stereo type that all Madison kids are rich or that they think they are better than everyone else in the state is a total falsehood. The student body is open to all new and incoming students as I have first hand experienced this. ...  Read more

Having sent my oldest here for one year, I was not impressed with the school. The average student gets lost in the cracks, with no assistance or follow through from the guidance dept. Sports are ultra competitive with many students quitting after years of playing due to the coaches. The student body ...  Read more

If there is a 'weak link' in the chain ...  Read more

This school is not all so great. I went there for all four years and the admin only cares about their ratings and very little about the students.

Great facility, curriculum, and food. Terrible student body, and there's too much pressure put on the kids. Also, the 'mester' schedule makes it nearly impossible to fully learn anything. The administration is getting better, but, to their credit, they only get kids escorted off their property for refusing ...  Read more

I've had 2 children go through schools in Madison. Ghastly experience. Children must perform busy work in lockstep for the most part. Creativity and humor are treated as threatening behaviors. Bad attitude hits you the minute you walk into DHHS. The teachers are not supported by the administration.

Excellent school. The teachers walk the students hand by hand and lead them to success. The test scores and prep are fantastic at this school! I would highly suggest this school over other schools, such as Cheshire or Hamden.
