What is with all of these parent reviews? Shouldn't students be the ones rating the school since they attend the school? I graduated from Dundee Crown in 2007 and think the school is not very good. I suppose it isn't a problem with Dundee Crown itself, but the entire public school system. Don't get me wrong, the people are great, but the education obtained from the school is garbage. IUpon attending a four year university, I had to revamp my entire outlook on school. What I mean is,
I am a former student from Dundee-Crown and have only great experiences from it. The schools diversity sets it a part from any school in the area and gives you life lessons as well as a great education. I am a scholarship athlete at a University and I believe Dundee-Crown was obne of the main reasons I've been so successful!!!
As a 'new' parent of an incoming Freshman, we have only rave reviews and not only from us but our daughter 'loves' her school. DCHS has made the transition into High School so smooth and a very wonderful experience - we would choose DCHS over any other High School in out district! Keep up the great work!
My son has been to Dundee Crown. First impression was not that good. However, the school has got high education standards and takes keen interest in the education of each students by keeping parents in check with the grades and performance.
For motivated students, every opportunity is there at D-CHS to succeed. The teachers are on average out-standing and the principal runs a tight ship. Guidance department is tops but very over-loaded. The key is to plan the four year curriculum up-front. Parents should be involved early and stay involved through out the four years. Many students go on to successful careers from this diverse high school.
I attend this school and its an alright school. there are much better high-schools out there but i wouldn't go anywhere else. I dont know if i'd reccommend this school to anyone i guess you'd have to go there and experience it yourself.
I think Dundee Crown is amazing. My brother went to the other high school(Jacobs) in our district and my parents have been very impressed with DC. I'm involved with poms, 5 different clubs, and the music programs. I feel that if there was anything I was into I would be able to find some kind of group who enjoyed the same things. I also love the diversity because there are so many interesting people and it makes high school more like college and the 'real world'. I disagree with the previous comment, except for our english dept. we also have amazing history and math teachers. Our bands and orchestras are phenominal and the sports teams are well-recognized and are appreciated by the school. Thanks DC for 4 awesome years.
My experience is that this school does not stand by or help it's students or parents. My son was an average student and a excellent athlete. But received no help with college prepration. My son actually thought he didn't excell in sports. Even though he broke several records and holds several. I wished my son would have taken my offer to transfer, but he loved his school. I think they should take a stronger role in helping parents like myself who knows nothing of the system. Not to be totally negative I must also add that the English Dept has one of the best English teachers around. Mrs Ferrel. My son loved her. She is one teacher who cares about her students.
