    "The student involvement is usually not a problem. Students work together to get things done. Peer pressure could be an issue though, concerning behaviors have happened before because of peer pressure. Students usually accept other students, theres different cliques in this school like other high schools. Theres groups that support that LGBT community. I have seen other students stand up for bullied students."

    "As someone who is very open-minded and accepting, it is hard to definitively say that this school is diverse and accepting without a hint of bias. However, many staff and student members are greatly involved and accepting."

    "The teachers at DeKalb High School are phenomenal. Whether I'm in need of some one-on-one help outside of school hours or someone to help me with college applications, I have so many willing and ready resources and teachers available. These teachers are truly passionate about teaching, making us as students passionate about learning."

    "My experience at DeKalb High School has been okay. I love going to the football games and cheerleading competitions. I'm a cheerleader myself. DHS has a program that lets us use Google Chromebooks, 1 to 1 technology. To me, that's very unique because not all schools get that opportunity. I would choose this school because it's a nice learning environment and the teachers are very understanding."

    "My high school has done a great job in creating a community of very passionate people. My favorite thing about DHS is how it works with our SOAL program, the program for special ed students. As students, we have opportunities to take classes working with students from the program, and we also have activities that we do with them throughout the year. We've developed so many close relationships by this. It makes me so proud of our school."
