filled with drugs and gangs and sex. Not a great place at all. I recently moved. But I remember the classes being mostly packets nor teaching. Tons of negativity. Just a terrible place.

My son is a freshman at Denton High. He loves it. He said all of his teachers are nice. He loves playing football and likes all the coaches. So far so good. It's in a great location too. Close by downtown Denton Square, UNT, and TWU.

Fabulous school. During my 4 years at DHS I had some of the best teachers. The school has an amazing fine arts department, though sports definitely lacks in some areas.

DHS is a the oldest most well rooted schools in Texas. 50 years at the same building and some of the best traditions in the nation. Our kids are diverse and unique. Not to mention that we have one of the best physics teachers around... just kidding, but not really!

Our teachers are extremely caring. Our SAT and ACT scores are higher than the state average. Our fine arts program is the best in the area. Our location between two great universities (UNT and TWU) guarantees that our students have access to dual credit opportunities. We have maintained our small ...  Read more

I am a recent graduate of DHS, and have to say that I really enjoyed my experience there. As a student teacher at other schools, I have realized that the policies and programs at Denton are far better than elsewhere in Texas and focus more on the student's learning rather than crazy school board politics. ...  Read more
