Duarte High School 3

If your child is a diligent student, Duarte High School is an excellent school with great programs and enthusiastic teachers. They have an excellent science program, and numerous extracurricular activities. If your child is less than diligent, or apathetic, then DHS is not the place for you. The lower level classes are overfull and teachers have a hard time working with those students. Regardles, with few exceptions, staff and teachers don't respond unless you show up at school requesting a meeting. The parents who participate give 110%. The PTSA has been improving in recent years, and there are always parents who attend games and events. However, the percentage of parents who actually help out is exceedingly low.

I could not be more pleased with the Teachers & Administrators at Duarte High School. Our Son is receiving a quality education. We are very involved parents and are hoping that more parents step up to the plate. It takes a village. Parental presents really makes a different at all grade levels. Please join your PTA's/PTSA s and School Site Councils when given the opportunity.

The early college program is terrific! The staff and the instructors a very attentive to the students needs. This school is a hidden gem. Dont be fooled, the Administration has done a great job to make the environment one focused on education.. good work!

How is the discipline related to what grades students earn? If anything, DHS needs more parents to help their kids do the right thing and stop making excuses for bad behavior--I think there is always room for improvement but the staff is on the right track--join PTSA or school site council and help-don't just complain

completely unfair with students in the cases of disaplen. Which then makes them turn against the school, these results in lower grade scores!

This school won the California Distinguished School award for 2007. A lot of money was spent to improve the school grounds and it is now a beautiful, award winning school.
