I'm a junior at DHS. I'm a cheerleader, member of the band and drama club, and student council as well as National Honor Society. So, you could say that I participate in just about everything. Honestly, Daingerfield is a good school and they're very dedicated to their sports program. It's the kids that are starting to get lazy and not care. The children only care about going out and partying and getting high. The grades are slipping terribly. And it's not because the teachers aren't teaching well, it's because of the students lack the motivation to do good in school. The students here have great potential, they just need that push to see that they can be better and get a better reputation for our school.

DHS has a great atheletics program but thats all people focus on. I am a senior in band of this school and I can honestly say that if it wasn't for our principle the arts would be lost. Our community never cheer our band on nor care about any other art programs. Also If we had more teachers that wouldn't take so much bad behavior from our many unruly students this place would be a lot better.

I think that the teachers are trying but they should find more creative ways to teach the kids. Try to relate to something in their lives, and work on that. Most of the students are busy or worried about something in their own lives rather than school. My son is a very smart kid but unless you challenge him with something that he is interested in you would not really see it. It has to be fun or interesting to him in order for him to really get in to it.

I am a Jr. at Daingerfield High School. I think that our school has a very good athletic program. but they care way to much about it. I also think that because of this TAKS test the teachers push and push so much stuff in so little time on us. If they made it fun than maybe we would pass every time. i think Daingerfield is an ok school i guess.

Daingerfield is a very outstanding school. If the the kids are not passing it's bc their parents are not getting involved. The teachers are teaching the best they possibly can.

DHS does have an outstanding sports program, but our academics is not as poor as some of the previous reviews report. We have an active group of about 50-70 students who participate in UIL academic contests and a number who have advanced beyond district. We have a superb math team with great roots from junior high competition. Our school has an active Business Professionals of America (BPA) chapter that competes at the regional and state levels every year and has had national qualifiers for at least the last 3 years. Our FFA chapter participates in all of the academic contests offered by its organization, like Parliamentary Procedure, Quiz Team, Skills, Public Relations, and so on. We also have a Health Occupations club, a Spanish Club, and an FCCLA club who all compete in academic contests pertaining to their respective fields.

I am a parent of a sophmore student. She is being well prepared for college and life in her classes. She has been very successful in several extracurricular activities - not sports. She does not let the few unruly students interfere with her education.

I am a former DHS student, and the quality of this High School is below average to say the least. The faculty is mostly new and not very good. They interact very little with the students. Most of the older teachers have retired due to the nature of the students. The bad kids make it very hard for the good students to learn. The school has enforced very strict discipline policies that make DHS like a jail rather than a high school. All the school cares about is their sports programs. DHS does not stand for academics. I would not recommend sending anyone to this high school to receive a quality education.

I am a former student of dhs (class of 2007) and I would under no circumstances recommend daingerfield high school. My freshman year was not so bad, but as my senior year rolled around I was begging to leave. There needs to be a big change.

I am a very concerned parent of a DHS student. The high school has failed TAKS overall. How very sad! The school puts too much emphasis on sports and NOT enough on academics. We are moving out of this school district because my child deserves a good education. The administration is not strong enough to lead this school to be great. It's mediocre at best!

I go to Daingerfield HS and believe that it is a different experience. I enjoyed the first two years at the school, but last year was an experience all-right. There are now too many trouble makers that don't follow the rules and guidelines set out by the staff. This next year will be my senior year, and I am dreading some of it because most of the good and nice teachers resigned or are going to different schools because there are too many problem children to deal with. It isn't the schools fault, it's just that the kids are incorigable. They have no faith in themselves most of the time, and they don't try to do their very best. I would give the school an A for effort, but a C for the students behavior because they don't listen to anything worth- while the teachers have to say.

My kids go to School in Daingerfield. I give Daingerfield School B+ everyone is so nice and the teachers talk to you about your kids problems and what to do to help. They have a great sports and music departments and good parent involvement in all levels.

If your looking for a school for minority children, this is it. Academic programs I'd give a 2 on a scale of 1-5. No music programs that I'm aware of but if you like sports, this school has gone to state numerous times. I've took my son out for his senior year because it was so bad. I'd give Daingerfield High School a C-.
