I would have to say that Dekalb High School has made enormous improvements over the years! As a former student I can tell you that Dekalb has come very far from what it used to be. I considered sending my children to a different school at first... But believe me when I say that Dekalb Central Schools ...  Read more

I was recently very disappointed when my son's teacher did not keep his grade up-to-date on Power School. When we finally found out he was missing several assignments, it was too late for him to make up the work. My other son complains that, for example in Spanish (a dual-credit class), they waste a ...  Read more

I am a current student at DeKalb and I actually like it very much. I am currently enrolled into the DeKalb New Tech program, which gets bad mouthed a lot.

As a student I believe Dekalb is a great school if you want to be a great student; To get any success you must have the money and effort for it.

Poor test scores and blissful ignorance abound. As someone has already mentioned, school staff members mostly look the other way when it comes to bullying, especially if the students doing the bullying are members of some athletic team. Education: subpar. Teachers are very hit-or-miss, with mostly misses. ...  Read more

I do not believe that this school is sub par! I also do not know where people are thinking that it is "in style" to be pregnant! I would call a teenager getting pregnant "bad parenting." I do not see how you can blame the teachers for these teenagers actions. They are only at school for a short period ...  Read more

This school is sub par. The faculty glorifies the students who are involved with drinking and drugs and sexually active. Being pregnant is "in style" and the athletes are the biggest offenders and only get slaps on the wrists and are allowed to continue to participate. Sends a very negative message to ...  Read more
