14 Parent Reviews for Dripping Springs High School

Very guilty of prioritizing the wrong things. Grades are more important than physical or mental health, and football and band are more important than grades. I always got the impression that coming to school sick was preferable to gaining one horrific absence. This school may be better than some other ...  Read more

its ok. wish there was more diversity. its an 'old school' district trying to grow up into the new millenium.

I noticed that the class sizes are a little larger than the state average (very surprising). However, the district's students are more well behaved and more acdemically focused than most of the schools in Texas. We moved here because of the exemplary rating and state standing for academics.

I love this school and this district. I feel like, because of the great quality of teachers and student around me, I know where I'm going with my life. I am a freshman at this high school and this year has been great. In 6th grade I was recognized as a "Gifted and Talented" english student and the class ...  Read more

The staff is friendly. The teachers seem to be dedicated to doing the best that they can despite the large class sizes. The school board is excellent. The excellent band program resulted in state championship for marching bands. Parent involvement is very high for a public school.

My other big problem with the high school is its location. The district is very spread out and as far away from the city ...  Read more

This school puts obstacles in front of the kids and calls it 'rigor.' Do not try to have a conversation with a teacher, especially if you have a question - the teachers are always right and the students always lie. Principal is weak. I would not send any more of my children here, and pulled out the ...  Read more

As a former student of DSHS, I had great experiences throughout my career in school. The sports program is average in terms of performance in the district, but the teaching is at a high level. The advanced programs prepared me well for both college and graduate school. Of the top 10% of my graduating ...  Read more
