Del Norte has a very diverse population of students, the principal, school leadership team, teachers/staff all strive to meet the needs of all students. They offer a wide variety of classes to meet the individual students needs (from non-english learners, special education to the community college to the college bound student) Parents are given every opportunity to become involved in the schools activities, from class offerings to sports etc., but way to many do not take the opportunity to. My child has done exceedlingly well and is very pleased with the majority of his teachers.
My 9th grader , loved it the first day of school and doing very well .
My daughter has really blossomed at this school. The student body is diverse, her teachers have been excellent and the counseling staff has been unbelievable. The track teams has also been great. It's the smallest high school in the city and it was just what my daughter needed. We transfered her from the largest in the city where she just was not doing well, academically or socially.
Del Norte has been an excellent school for us. My son graduated in 2006 & I currently have a son who is the 10th grade. The teachers are excellent and the AP courses are wonderful. Every kind of level of student is helped and educated at this school. It is the most diverse school in Albuquerque. My son who is in college has said he was ready for college and all his peers due to the fact of DN being so diverse in student body. The sports are also there if you want to play and actually be part of a team. Go Knights!
My sons experience at Del Norte 2 1/2yrs has been a sad one, some of the teachers here are great but others are really a sad story, when a teacher tells you 'no matter what you do you are going to fail'. It kind of makes you wonder if they know their job.? They have so many Subs here that students don't learn the assigned subjects, they don't need babysitters they need teachers. School spirit can be important I agree but lets get back to learning, high school is not just a place to spend 7 hours a day socializing with friends.Needless to say he has been put into another school now that concentrates on learning for the future. I mean come on, they are our Future!
Academically the school is great. The population is small and it allows more one-on-one help. Sports and extracurricular activities that are available are wonderful and the teams give everyone a chance to show what they can do, not just play people who will win. Del Norte is so great with the different types of people hanging around one another and the parents are so helpful and devoted to their teenagers.
I love the atmosphere at this school. The size and the students. It is like a home away from home. I feel just as safe at this school as I do at my own home. I know the school spirit is one of the best in America. It's just great and I would highly recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to have open minds and learn and have fun also while having a sense of security.
Del Norte is a very diverse school. It is one of the most unique in Albuquerque! The teachers are excellent and really care about the students. It teaches how to work in an environment from all sorts of people with different backgrounds and races. This school has a wide range of activities and special programs.
