DCH was truly an obstacle itself. As being a graduate, Detroit Community has its ups and downs. Its ups being that the athletic programs are great and the teachers who taught their prior to my graduation in 2013 were the best. But on the other hand, it is going in the wrong direction with staff members constantly being fired which does not give the students any type of consistency which is necessary for teenagers at this age. As well as the how the school focuses more on petty things like uniform and tardiness rather than letting students go to class to actually get an education. Post graduation in attending a four year institution now, I must say DCH in my ninth & tenth grade years prepared me for college and after that it was downhill. DCH is really a great school but still has a lot of kinks that needs to be worked out. If your willing to work with the school, then it might be a good choice for you or your student.

Detroit Community school has changed over the years, my advise DON'T SEND YOuR CHILD HERE..No good activities, teachers and prinipals (4) being fired throughout the school year, only thing that was looked forward to is the boys basketball team, superintendent and the rest of the administration had bad attitudes, school was safe because of all the hired security staff, but they focus and care more about ur uniform and everything else in the book then your education..bottom line, send your child there yur gonna wish you hadn't..on the bright side there were a lot of teachers on the students side against the administration..and sadly I think that's why they were fired...SCHOOL IS ABOUT NOTHING BUT POLITICS

I,Darkila Knaff was very happy to attend dch school. I like there environment that they have. Also dch is a very impressive of school it's clean and it have beautiful declaration.Sometimes the work may get hard time to time but hea its high school what do you expect it to be.That's why dch have after school tutoring so when you need help take time off and get help so you can improve .I'm so happy that my school dch has actives like, the dance team,cheerleading team in many more actives.That's keeping the student's busy making them stay on track insteady running the street's all the time because,there's nothing out there in them street's but drama in bad action.I,Darkila Knaff can't wait to get in the 10th grade so I can be on the dance team because I love dancing I dance everyday no matter what im doing .

My daughter graduated from dch in May '03. I can't tell you how impressed I was with this learning institution. The teachers, counselors, office personnel, cheerleading coaches, etc. were wonderful. My daughter is about to graduate in May 07' from Duke University. I can truly say that her experience at dch helped prepare her for Duke as well as for the LSAT. She will be starting law school in Sept. 07 Of course, with the school being newly formed, there were a lot of 'kinks', and obstacles to work through. However,the overall experience with dch was wonderful for us. The administration and staff are truly interested and concerned with the students receiving a quality education. They work with the students to ensure that they have every opportunity possible to excell beyound h.s. I would recommend this school to anyone who is thinking about h.s. for their youngster.

The 2004-2005 school year was the first year that my son attended dch. I was very impressed with the effort and time that many of the teachers applied to my child. They were very encouraging with him, and very informative with me.One of the teachers even asked my permission to take my son to henry ford community college to assist us in enrolling him in a few classes to help develope his math skills. Not only was i impressed by the academic staff, but the boys basketball coaches were wonderful also. I would highly suggest dch for parents who are seeking a excellent school within the city of detroit. Prior to attending dch my son had attended dearborn acadamy and the acadamy for bussiness and technology.I thought that i would never find a school within the city that would match their standards, however dch surpassed them.
