I dont care about Home work right now, D.H. Conley is excessively cruel when it comes to a child being late and its partly their fault when the system they have calls for a person to wait in line for 15 to 20 minutes once you arrive just to let your Child out of the Car to go into the school, Please give me a break!!!!
My 10th grade student Son started at D.H. Conley High this year 2016, He has had 4 tardy's (as they call it) 2 of which were my fault due to the 15 to 20 minute wait you have to go thru when you arrive at the Schools drive thru, My thing is this, Responsibility is good for kids but DON'T TREAT Them like Adults, Giving a Child a days suspension for missing one of the tardy's is excessive for a 15 yr old, From what I thought D.H. Conley is a good school but treating kids like adults is cruel, And they need a much much better system with the traffic situation when you drive your child to School, IT IS RIDICULOUS!!
I am a student that is highly involved and proud to be a viking. I would like to commend our teachers on their willingness to be helpful. All you have to do is ask and they are there to help you succeed. Especially the math department, as there is usually at least 1 day a week for afterschool tutoring. We have tons of school spirit and the Conley Crazies definately help drive that. There are some teachers that are strict and hateful at times, they really are trying to prepare you for the next level. One bad thing is the fact that our school isn't very clean. The new building looks good, but there are many classrooms in the old part that are gross, not to mention the disgusting trailers.
I am the parent of a student taking 3 Advanced Placement courses at D.H. Conley. I want to take a moment to commend his A.P. United States history teacher, Mrs. Susan Pearce, in doing such a marvelous job with her students. My son comes home almost daily and raves about the knowledge this woman has and how brilliant she is. She is very challenging, but that is the nature of an A.P. course. Thank you, Mrs. Pearce, for doing such a fine job with your students. Overall, I think Conley is a fine school. It also has a great deal of school spirit.
This is my son's first year at Conley. The teacher support for all students is great! You don't have to qualify through testing or be low to get after school tutoring. The teachers welcome parental invlovement. From the first day I walked in counselors and teachers are helpful.
