    "My daughter has transfered from another High school in NY last year and we were very dissapointed. It maby has many programs for students who want to get involoved, but you are pretty much on your own. There clearly is no gudiance, minimum communication, filth and yes fights on daily bases, unsupevised students during concert behaving unpropietly, and the list goed on and on. Quite frankly I am not sure what the guidance counselor is getting paid for. Who in the world would place students that belong in honor math into ESL math. The school is too big for its own sake and even though it has some good and dedicated teachers it is all about crowd controll than anything else. Lock of parental involovement is partially at fault here. My daughter had great grades without much effort but as much trouble I had getting her enrolled here, I am trying even harder to get het into better learning environment. Home shchooling looks much more atractive to us at this point. I just wish this town had vouchers, so finacially challenged families wouldn't feel that they have no better option for their children besides moving out of town."

    "Danbury High School is HORRIBLE for Transfer Students I am a Senior and My Credits From SOPHOMORE YEAR have Still Not been recorded in The System. and Staff isnt Great at all. They Can sometimes be disrespectful towards students who are not only respectful to them but also quiet and the type to stay out of trouble I would recommend ACE or another school danbury High School has Destroyed my Senior Year."

    "I concur with the 2 previous posters. The ratings and scores don't tell the story about DHS. It is an amazing school with wonderfully dedicated teachers. I'll never forget how I got a call the summer before my daughters Freshman year. Two of her core teachers wanted to come visit . In 2 teacher pairs they were visiting all the incoming Freshman assigned to their academy group before school started. Wow - what dedication! We have not faced the all too common clique or "meanness" factor. She has wonderful friends with high standards and values. She has loved the school and most of her teachers. I am confident she is getting a great education and DHS offers so many great opportunities in sports, clubs, music and the arts. If you haven't attended a play or orchestra event at the school you are missing out. Sadly we are moving due to a job relocation. I only hope her next school is as wonderful as DHS."

    "A few years agoMy son switched schools from a town right outside of Danbury right my youngest went to high school.Because of a divorce. Over the years he was bullied and nothing was done. So we decided to use my ex husbands address to let him attend Danbury. and he loves it and I was so prejudice about Danbury. He does theatre and is accepted just because he isn't tough. All parents should send their kids to Danbury High. Don't be afraid about all the rumors about gangs it is amazing experience ]. He has a 4.0 GPA. He rose from C's to A's because of the teachers dedication and helpfulness towards the students education! Now he is attending Yale in the fall, Remember make the change"

    "Diverse student population, lots and lots of different classes available. Helps prepare students for the world more than most schools in the area, mainly in part to the large cultural diversity."
