Although Denby still faces some challenges as it is a neighborhood school, the community and culture of the school has changed dramatically for the better. Hallways are clear by the bells and students are in class learning. Teachers seem more connected to the school an surrounding community and have made efforts to get the kids involved in programs that expose them to all of the innovative things happening in Detroit. Denby students are required to do community service and each freshman is required to participate in an elective club. Keep the trend Tars!

Denby has improved a lot since moving from DPS to EAA. With the renovation, new staff and administration, Denby is on the move to be a great school again!

I went there in the late 80's and it was HORRIBLE then I can only imagine the decay of the school and loss of young minds stuck in this Educational vacuum!

I have a ninth grade daughter attending Denby High School, and I must say that I'm disappointed in the DPS system as a whole. The school contains over 2300 students which is the highest student enrollment for all high schools in Detroit, and it shows. The halls are constantly littered with students, the staff is ill equipped to handle these children, and the security guards are no better.
