This school discipline is out of control. I blame leadership for this. The students are completely out of control. My son says they are very disrespectful to the teachers. There is a fight daily and it is recorded by the students. The students sit up in class and curse like they are adults. They also need to being back uniforms. The students do not look like students going to school. They look like adults. I blame the parents for this. I also blame the district for removing the uniforms. I have seen this wit my own eyes. Duncanville ISD has gone down over the years, and it appears to continue to decline. There needs to be strong and mean very strong leadership at the helm. They need not allow parents to run the school. The parents and students would have to understand that, or find another district to attend. This review is totally on the behavior of the school.

Horrible experience. School is too big to manage students effectively. Dress code is NOT enforced and that makes it very difficult as a parent to get my kid to comply. Subs are in classes more than actual teachers and they "lose" assignments on a regular basis. Can't wait to be done with DHS.

I Don't know why this school is getting bad reviews, my Son went there all four years and never got into any trouble I also think that his teachers were concerned about his education, he graduated in 2013 and is now doing great serving in the US Navy.

My son attends Duncanville High School. I continue to see improvement in the school/staff. The teachers keep you posted on your child's status....communication is a A+. The school offers many opportunities for advancements, but it is up to the student to take advantage and do well.

No one answers the phone. Staff is lazy. Duncanville needs to fire the administrative team. Even though not all of them are bad...But there needs to be a message sent about accountability. I also believe that the failure of this school district needs to fire the superintendent and the assistant superintendents. They are all incompetent. Every teacher needs to re-interview for their job because there is a real issue with the educational culture.
