As a former student, I am very disappointed in the teachers, and the rules. The rules are ALWAYS being broken, some of the teacher have a favorite someone "a class pet". And they never get in trouble. Then there are some teachers that cuss, alow kissing to happen and outragess behaver including sexual commets and fighting. If you ask a teacher to stop someone to stop doing something they won't do anything, there lunches are microwaved and discussing, the only reasons I give it a three is that the school is pretty big and holds lots of grades so you don't have to change schools, the uniforms are "ok" and not too geeky, and the eletvives are great and cool.
As a parent this school is fabulous! My daughter attended a private Christian school for 9 years before coming to this school. She was failing the last 2 years at her old school because she said the teachers didn't care and learning was not fun. Different story at DCHS!! She is now a straight "A" student taking honors and AP courses. She has a lot of friends from all kinds of backgrounds and says this school is by far the BEST!!' This school looks for a lot of parent volunteers which is good...it means we care about our kids lives. For all those that complain about low staff...why don't you volunteer your time or are you looking for a free ride? You have to give to get.
The school building itself is not that bad, however, the staff and teachers lack real motivation. The school is not very safe, a man brought a knife to school last year and this year someone walked right into the school without ever being questioned. Also, the children sit in the stairways and makeout and do god only knows what else. That comes straight from my 9th grade daughter. If we could pull them out, we would. It feels very much like a public school with uncaring teachers.
this is a GREAT school with GREAT teachers and Principle! they have parents who are involved with their children and the school. I feel blessed having both my boys here at DCBS.
Duval Charter has an intense dedication to each student's success. As of 2013-14 school year, it only goes up to grade 11. It won't have a senior class until 2014-15.
