My daughter is in the CIS Magnet and taking AP classes. It's a tough curriculum but it's preparing her for college and beyond. She's the poster child for "you get what you put in". I'm surprised that DPHS was rated a 5. As a parent, I think it's the best high school in SW Orlando.

Most of the teachers my son has had have been very effective. There have been only 2 or 3 that he struggled with.

There are days when it is too much to balance with the other activities of life.

We have had the best experience at DPHS these last 4 years. My son's Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Kelly, is the best !!!!

Administration is so biased its disheartening. This is my first year here and I'm definitely making sure its my last. Never have I felt more emotionally unsafe in a school and this is my 5th highschool. Teachers are so quick to dress code girls for showing a little bit of skin and worry more about that than found their job. Don't be fooled when people say "this is the best highschool in Orlando" I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to have to attend this school. They offer absolutely no help, you're always on your own, emotionally and even with academics. I asked my counselor to switch me out of a class I was struggling with and she refused to even when I brought my mom to a conference. Once I started here, I was offered absolutely no information about those "magnificent" programs everyone talks about even though I'm a sophmore and its my last opportunity to join a magnet. If you love your child, do not make them suffer by sending them here.
