This is definitely not a school that I would ever recommend to anyone. Homework is an insane amount of busywork that is poorly structured and confusing, and faculty fails to deal with its students mental health problems and worries effectively. Teachers are half and half, some care about the students learning and comprehension of the material, while others are obviously only teaching as a side-gig so that they can coach a sport.
This school is actually terrible. The teachers are sub-par and often lose students assignments and then claim that they never received them. Also students are never treated as though they have something important to say unless it involves football. There is so much competition here that students who learn differently or who aren't as motivated end up completely discarded by the system or treated as though they will never amount to anything more than a job at McDonalds. I LITERALLY WATCHED A TEACHER KICK A STUDENT OUT OF CLASS FOR HAVING A DIFFERENT OPINION. This school was a prison that I could not wait to get out of. Mental health is completely undervalued and depression is rampant here because no one cares at all about health and happiness. There is so much hatred here. Don't send your kid here. They will suffer and regret ever coming here.
My daughter graduated in 2016 from DSHS. She is so well prepared for college. The teachers are excellent and the over all campus feel is amazing! I should know because I have been working on the campus as a substitute teacher for several years. I love this school and have other children in the district that are excelling in their classes. I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else.
I could not be more disappointed with this school. The problem with these small town schools is they are very narrow minded, and are very judge mental to people who are diverse or different. There is a lot of bullying that occurs at this school not a specific group everyone bullies everyone. And besides the social aspect of this school their academics aren't too great either. They focus more on athletics more than academics. Athletes get a lot of leeway compared to non athletes. A good majority of their teachers are coaches who know nothing about the subject they are teaching. Would not recommend this school there are better options in the Austin area.
