My two teen boys have greatly improved their grades after moving here from Oklahoma. Some people feel entitled and are giving low ratings but if they fixed their problems at home maybe their children wouldn’t struggle in school.

This school does nothing about bullying: they tell the child being bullied to just ignore it! It’s ridiculous! What a horrible school!

A school full of adults who care about students. The students get out what they put in and if students try and really care about what they're doing academically then the students do great. Learning starts at home so if the kids have a great foundation then they will do great.

I have never been more discussed in my life! Air is broke,roaches everywhere, stinks. Boys talking very disrespectful to girls in a sexual manner and teachers high-fiving laughingwith them! Can't tell the teachers from the students. Very disorganized and unprofessional when having meetings with parents. How did they expect the students to care about their education is when the teachers don't care? Kids selling drugs. My kids are scared to go to school and my kids have never disliked school. This is their first year here and they will not be coming back next year!

I am the parent of a recent graduate and a current senior. Both had good grades (top 10%). DHS has some amazing teachers, but it is ruled by self-proclaimed tenured teachers who bully students, parents, and younger teachers. Most subjects, with the exception of history, are well-taught. Beware of misleading claims made by the IB Programme. Most schools probably give favors to children of district employees, but the favoritism at DHS is noticeable. DHS is a good fit if you cherish academics more than your child's self-concept. You cannot keep your child safe from bullies when bullying starts at the top. I wanted to love DHS, but I would look elsewhere if I had it to do again.
