. The building is so outdated that it will cost as much to repair it as it would to build a new state of the art school. The great teachers and staff are doing the best they can with the old, outdated building but the County loses some of their best over the controversy. There is a great effort to build a new school so if you're reading this and live in Davie County - be sure and vote YES when the bond vote comes up this spring. The students, teachers, property values and future of Davie County depends on it!
This school is the best school in the state are test scores are the highest in the state. There is nothing wrong with the building a new school is not going to solve the problem.the school is very nice are schools in davie county are the best.
Davie County H.S is in such a sad state! Overcrowded, under-valued teachers, highly political arena, poor education, outdated equipment&campus. I had 2 children go thru DCHS & they both 'got by' doing the minimum...no motivation to do more (despite our nagging). Teachers were too overworked/shuffled around to follow up if kids didn't do work so kids learn quick they can hand stuff in whenever & still get credit for it. Students are suffering due to lack of county commitment to update/build a new school. Would rather waste money on everything else but education in the county. I will NOT be sending child #3 there. It's a waste of a building. Bulldoze it!
Zero stars no good! DC is a bottem of the poles. The school system claims to be so great well, my daughter has a field trip coming up and their doing background checks. Makes no sense. Im not giving anyone my ssn#.
Davie High is a great school but its not perfect, no school is, but I believe God sent Mr Wallace to DHS and I know he's made a difference.Alot of the students lack respect for others and themselves.Praise God if they learn how to speak to adults and follow rules, thats something they should have been taught when they were 5.Mr Wallace is a blessing to me!
Davie High is a great school filled with incredible teachers. The sports teams and bands are great. The main reason we moved here is because of the schools! We aren't disappointed in Davie High.
My child currently attends this public high school, and I am not happy with its structure, Davie High School, I believe, is very unsanitary. Such as: bathrooms, cafe' room, and class rooms.
I have had good experiences with the Guidance Counselers, (Mr. McKnight)...I do feel the school is overcrowded and a new high school is needed in a growing Davie County.
Very disappointed in the leadership of administrators in this district. A lot of political motivation precedes academic needs of buildings and students. Preferrential treatment of athletes supercedes academics. My child had a teacher for a whole year who was not highly qualified to even teach that subject.
Good school overall; however, I perceive that priority is given to sports over academics, i.e: lighter workload during sports season. Good after school programs.
Leadership lacks due to increased discipline problems and low moral. Students do not have a a true seasoned high school leader at the helm. Davie is not as prestigious as it once was when I and other family members attended. Students and parents are accommodated in every fashion even when it goes against policy. Sorry, I know many of you don't want to realize this.
An outstanding school hosting a very caring and committed faculty in all areas of the students'lives: academics, the arts, leadership, community involvment, and sports. Overall good student interaction with each other. Strong leadership will continue to keep this school one of the best in the state.
The administration and faculty at Davie High are strongly committed to its students. The teachers work hard to challenge the students and prepare them for life after high school. The extracurricular activities are extensive including the arts, leadership activities, academic competitive teams as well as athletics. The community support of this school is incredible!
Its a great school. Alot of County involvement only having 1 High school. My husband and myself and both my children attended there as well as my brothers and sisters. Great Academically as well as athletically. Great teachers!
A great school with good teachers, great academics and good sports teams.
