Danville Area is my Alma Mater. As far as I know, we have the only high school Graduations where both sexes wear the same color caps and gowns. (If anyone wonders, they're royal violet with orange sashes.) As superficial as this may seem, it shows modern equality in ways that other high schools don't, and it reinforces preparation for colleges. (Most universities don't change cap and gown colors based on sex. It's only that most high schools do.) In addition, a 2007 US News and World Report study rated Danville High among the best 5% of all American public high schools. As an Alumnus of Danville Area (Class of 2008), I see no reason not to be proud to be an Ironman.
We consider ourselves very fortunate, indeed, to live in this school district. I have two children who have been given an excellent education through Danville Schools. Their individual needs were recognized and met, they were challenged and given wonderful learning opportunities. More needs to be done to recognize and embrace diversity. Experts need to be consulted to bring programs to celebrate differences and recognize and address sexism and oppression.
