    "I am a freshman and I have a brother who attended here and I went to the orientation. I'd like to defend del Valle because it looked amazing, it was comforting and friendly. And the racial diversity is completely false. There is Hispanic, black and white race and we don't bully or harass each other. We blend in nicely, it's a great social environment and it's a great example to teach students about the real world. I am proud to be here!"

    "The Del Valle district is not for everyone. The DVISD is primarily minority, Hispanic/Latino. As a DVHS graduate, I am very proud my affiliation. Yes, DVHS does have opportunities to fix but which school district is perfect? DVHS does provide an array of organizations and teachers will bend over backwards to provide exponential classroom experiences. I do agree there the lack of strong administration is in result of the lack of parent involvement. But that's due to parents in the community having to work full time. Families in the district come from middle working class, so attending board meetings can be an inconvenience. Over all if you're moving to the area, DVHS is a great school. (Many board members are against adding another HS, due to retention: students drop out to help family financial needs - I myself agree) Every district does have it's flaws and for some reason, DVHS' flaws tend to stick out more. DVHS is ranked among the top 15 5A (2500+) schools in the STATE for the best educational institution for minorities. Del Valle has also met TAKS requirements 6 years in a row. My friends and I all graduated from a major university, so there is college readiness. I"

    "This is the worst school that I've ever been to. I came from the RRISD and, I must admit, coming to DVISD, has really changed my opinon of school, because this school district only has one high school to go to. I am an A+ student, and all the students here,just talk through the period, distracting others, who really want to learn. It's just really sad. All children under the age of 18 are required to go to school, and the way I see it, is that, if we have to go to school, you might as well not waste your time and do what you're supposed to do, so you don't have to waste time and do it over again. I HATE this school, and no i'm not being basis, it's the truth and sometimeas the truth is ugly. Parents all I ask out there is that you do what's best for your kids and get them to a better school. I'm embarrassed to attend this school. I'm thinking about going to another one, but there's just one problem. There's only one school here...."

    "The school is poorly run by the administration, but the biggest problem is the parenting of the kids in this school district. This is clearly evidenced by the number of misspelled words and poor grammar and sentence structure of most of the postings (from parents) on this website and the websites for the other schools in this district. Kids in Del Valle are the worst behaved students I have ever experienced. They cuss teachers out and even throw pens, pencils, paper, and desks at the teachers. They refuse to attempt to learn and have complete disrespect for authority, school property and each other. They are constantly babied by teachers and principals, because they won't do any work without hand holding and/or threats of punishment. All of this horrid behavior stems from poor parenting. A school's staff is there to educate the children academically, not be their babysitters. It is the parents' job to raise their children to act appropriately and this doesn't happen in Del Valle."
