    "My school has more diversity and flexible areas than other school. I am so happy for my children to be with faculty and students."

    "My son is the 11th grade Summary: * Teachers:"F". They are horrible. Very lazy and absolutely no motivation to give the minimal effort. The only reason school's scores are competitive is because students work hard in spite of the poor teachers. The system is set up so that if students get high AP scores, then it must be because of the great teachers, right? Well, not quite. My son had a teacher tell the kids to leave the classroom so he could make a personal call for the whole class period. Another would scream and yell at students all the time. While yet another didn't know how to do the math problems so would work out the easiest one in the chapter and assign all the rest without teaching the content. Administration: "D". Principal doesn't want to document infractions against teachers, etc. As a result, they tolerate poor teachers. Many schools sponsor lots of academic competitions to promote high achievement. This school has AP, IB, and that is pretty much it. We asked them to promote the different olympiads and they weren't interested. We asked them to administer other AP tests (not offered at the school). The teacher did not want to come in to administer a test."

    "There is good and there is bad. However, there's actually more bad than good. GOOD: DBHS is highly regarded, has high test scores, relatively clean campus, and open doors for lots and lots of opportunities. Students are hard-working, dedicated, but it can be a little extreme. With a award-winning music program, world-class calculus classes, CIF wins in many sports, and a ridiculously high API score of 895 (2013), DBHS is regal. BAD: There are bad teachers for more difficult subjects, and social status and wealth dictates your social standing, which in the end dooms your high school life. Music program "requires" donations, and shuns peers that are less talented and active. The presumptuous majority of students are snobbish, judgmental, and die-hard-study-or-become-worthless thinkers. This is sad, because far too many students think that good grades mean college. Classrooms can be overcrowded, and lack of racial diversity interaction makes a social hierarchy, with the majority race standing on top. The popularity and success of a student in DBHS is dictated by their social standing, or wealth. Kids with money tend to be more "privileged", such as United Student Body (Leadership)."

    "Terrible. How did this school get a 4 stars this place sucked. Only a few of the teachers were really good like the math ones. That's about it."

    "This is hilarious, reading all of these comments bashing this school, Im sorry, but those who did likely did not work hard or worked at all. This is a great school with great teachers and amazing opportunities, its competitive as heck and thats the brilliance of it. Its as real world as you get, so many people complain that its so hard but thats only because they dont understand how hard life is. As a student who has taken nothing but the most rigorous schedule (we're talking all AP/IB) every year, I have to say that you wont find a better school. The people you meet here are great and will move you forward, a good rule of thumb is to be friends with those smarter than or as smart as you from day one. I will admit, around 100 of the people in my class are likely stoners but that was their choice. In summary, make good choices and actually care about school, do both and you will be great. Also, at the comment that all the smart kids go to tutors or something- thats completely false, not to sound snooty, but if you understood the material you wouldn't need to be tutored, and all the people here who care about and work at their classes deserve their hard earned grades."
