The new principal Mr. Vladu seems to be truly committed to making sure that all students have a safe, productive, learning environment. Many of the teachers are DHS Alumni and have a vested interested in the success of the ...  Read more

I'm senior at Denbigh and this school year has actually been the best out of all the others. The teachers are beginning to care more about the students education and our new principal is doing his best to stay on top of things. Problems in Denbigh have really calmed down since they got rid of all the ...  Read more

I have been really impressed by many of the things that have happened at Denbigh since Mr. Cromartie came as principal. The school now places education first and has fare fewer issues with discipline. School spirit is better, but needs more. Denbigh parents should better support the school and the ...  Read more

There's far more negatives than postives with this school, bottomline. If you want your child to go somewhere where education is serious, you are definetly at the wrrng school and perhaps the wrong city.

I've been employed at Denbigh for 9 years in a support capacity. The students are divided into two extreme catagories: the very best and the very worst. The troubled kids behavior is largely ignored and allowed. I have been told on several occasions by security and administrators that there are children ...  Read more

Its not all bad. Part of the problem with the school now is they don't enforce the rules. The administrators choose sides and favor some over others. The school just went downhill recently because they over crowed the sschool with previous gang rivals when they rezoned everyone into passage middle school. ...  Read more

I am a 2005 graduate of Denbigh and for me it was a learning experience. Denbigh has its problems, it has many problems but its not all on the teachers. I participated in the ROTC for 4yrs and that in itself was the most rewarding experience the teachers in the department were the mst involved I have ...  Read more

If you dont go there you cant really make a judgement. I have attended Denbigh ever since the 9th grade.Just like any school, you ...  Read more

Well, the school isn't exactly perfect. Some of the teachers are nice, some aren't. It's about half and half. Discipline at this school is almost pitiful. The principal's a good guy. He tries to keep stuff in order, but as most principals are, he's on the business side of things. This school is dirty ...  Read more
