    "This is an outstanding school with caring teachers and a very invested community. The students at this school are motivated to learn and the staff encourages them to be independent thinkers. Students leave DHS very well prepared for their post-high school plans. Students who have disabilities receive outstanding supports from both special ed. and general ed. teachers."

    "Teachers here are mixed. I've had some great teachers, but some terrible ones. There's a general lack of communication at this school. Parents have no idea that their kid maybe failing a class and when they email a teacher about something sometimes they get nothing, at least that's what's happened to my parents. Another example, you don't know what's going on such as when a certain club is meeting or that club even exists. The class choices here are very limited to other schools around the area. There are a lot of prerequisites and just not as many options in general. It's a very competitive and challenging school, which can be good for some kids, but unnecessarily hard on others. It's very hard to make friends here. It's very cliquey and kids are judgmental, rude, and excluding. The way that a lot of these kids treat each other is cruel and unlike many other schools. Don't send your kids here. They will have a tough time socially and if they're not slightly above average academically-gifted, it will be hard for them academically too."

    "The educational opportunities are great and we love this school! There is something for everyone! Every sport or club you could imagine, approachable teachers, some longer classes that combine two subjects, etc. The reviewer that was upset about their "conservative values" did not mention that there is a large Jewish and Eastern European presence here so intolerance cannot be tolerated, sorry. That being said, The parents have not moved beyond petty one upmanship and sorority/fraternity clique behavior so I dont see how the students will. The cliques are downright abusive to some students. My daughter is smart enough to know that her college future is the important thing and this school is going to be her best bet to be prepared for that. She has a strong social conscience and thinks about real issues so the Barbie thing gets on her nerves. A girl told her she was welcome to hang out with their group because she is pretty. Yeah..."

    "I am a student currently going through DHS and I am constantly amazed by the talented staff, strong administration, challenging classes, and impressive variety of extracurriculars and sports. Students have the opportunity to pursue almost any interest, and there's something for everyone (Student Congress, Mathletes, Cheerleading, Stage Crew, Human Rights club, Student council...) Most of the teachers are very hardworking and understanding, as is the administration. The school's only real failings are its overworked, understaffed counseling department and its somewhat old facilities."

    "I am a graduate with 3 siblings having graduated or attending DHS. The staff was involved, the sports and arts in depth. With a sibling needing accommodations, the school and its staff have been wonderfully supportive and she is currently incredibly successful due to their assistance and care. My other sibling has always been a student that wanted MORE work; she needed more challenge. She has found all the challenge she can at DHS along with expansive opportunities from the professors on a social and interactive level with programs like WYSE, honors and many others. The school has a wonderful college office, writing center and encourage kids to explore and create communities and aggregates of their own choice (like clubs and associations, like OYAD (yearbook), Deerprints (DHS newspaper) and much more), I loved my experience at DHS as an athlete and student. My 3 siblings and parents have as well."
