Completely disgraceful when I went there. Bullies in students and teachers. Hardly any decent programs including sports and very disgusting display of children building gun racks as activities. This school and area is notorious for bomb threats.

I am a former graduate of DA in the mid 90's. The education provided a solid base for college (I graduated from a private college). DA provides incentive for higher education with their Kellogg scholarship reimbursements.

i have had two children attend the school. One graduated and one could not take the intimidation so she went to live with her brother out of state and graduated from another school. The one who graduated returned to substitute for one year and then was hired as a "provisional" special-ed teacher. After four years with no complaints and a stellar coaching career, he summarily dismissed b/c he was up for tenure. This same thing has happened to many other teachers in this District. My 11th grade grandson has considered going elsewhere for his senior year also and our 12th grade granddaughter left last year to graduate from another school also. The administration rules by "good old boy" principles and the staff who are not part of the network tell me they regularly feel ostracized. It's the same way with parents. If you and your child are in the clique, then all is well for you, but heaven help the family on the margins.

Way to sports oriented,especially for the football team.Students are actually taken out of class to assemble in the gym for constant pep rallies while the school football team stand center court soaking up the attention.There is hardly any attention paid to students that excel in math,science or any other subject.Plenty of funding for sports and busing around the state.But if your child needs summer school you are on your own...25 miles one way. It's a safe school and over all not bad,but very 'clicky'.Tolerance of even slight difficulties with students greatly depends on the student and/or who the parents are.
