The lower levels (elementary and particularly middle school) have some good to excellent teachers. Once your child gets to the 9th grade however it might be time to start considering other options. The high school offers very little above the basics and the electives (band and art) are far below par. The only foreign language offered is Spanish so even the students who speak Spanish as their first language are stuck taking it. Ridiculous. Perhaps they could at least offer one more option? Maybe that will change soon. To be frank, they have far too many young coaches teaching real classes. While some are good (a top notch coach and veteran teacher is retiring soon), some of the younger ones seem much more interested in the prevent defense than doing a real job. If your child is an excellent student then they will overcome of course but for a child that struggles a bit or has little interest in sports (which they definitely make top priority at the expense of other things), then this might not be the best fit. They do offer some college courses for older students so inclined and that is certainly one bright spot to consider.

Just average and if your student moves to another district with higher education level they may find themselves struggling to keep up. Not much to offer outside of basic academics. High emphasis on sports though. Okay small school atmosphere, friendly environment but not much past that.

Overall, Danbury is a great school. I am currently a freshman and I'm loving every second of it. There are plenty of extracurdicular activities going on all of the time a d our athletics is pretty good. At the moment the school is going through some rather large changes with half of the coaching staff leaving and just as many teachers. At the moment, I find our educational system is a bit above average. While we pass the state tests with flying colors, let's face it. That doesn't mean anything. I would also like to see some other foreign languages to choose from other than Spanish (Latin would be great!) I simply love Danbury because it's a small town with a great community. Everyone knows everyone. Okay, I've said enough!

I have had several children graduate from DISD and overall they received a decent education however I would say they were not as well prepared for college as they needed to be. While there are a few teachers and courses that help prepare them for the next level, overall it is seriously lacking! There is a uniqueness in Danbury that is so wonderful which is lacking in many other schools one of its many, many assets - unfortunately, that alone cannot prepare one for the steps necessary in the next phase of their lives. Great parental involvement at the elementary level but seems to falter as they cross into the secondary level. Extracurricular is great for kids who want to be a part of everything!

Our children have attended Danbury ISD since K, one has graduated and one is a sophomore. We have been very pleased with it. The care the teachers and principals show the kids is very evident. It is a very small school and the teachers get to know the children one on one. One improvement we would like to see would be the curriculum, not enough foreign language or the arts taught. We feel very fortunate to have been able to live in this town so that our children could grow up and attend DISD.
