I am the parent of an African American female who is a Freshman at Downers South. We have lived in this area for about six years and I looked forward to my daughter attending DGS. I heard great things about the school. Unfortunately, my daughter has not had a positive experience going into high school. I do not agree with some of the policies at the school. In my experience I feel that the communication between parent/faculty is not that great at all. Also, the curriculum, as far as history for African Americans is needed and should be added to the curriculum. I have offered my services to the PTA and have not been called upon to assist with any programs since being a resident in this area. I will agree with the previous parent that the band/chorus concerts have been great!
I am the parent of a graduating Senior here at Downers South. He has had a positive experience there and I wanted to let others know that we have caring and professional teachers. We have been at DGS for only 2 years and they have been great. The teachers took an intrest in my son and his couselor was on her toes when it came to transferring into the school. I feel he has been challange in his AP courses as well as his other classes by teachers who want to see their students succeed. The band department is wonderful and I have truly enjoyed the concerts. The english department went above the call of duty when approached, proving they were there for the benefit of the students and their academic success. Thank you from a proud parent.
