The school is overcrowded for the number of students enrolled. I understand that a Federal Court Order confines Del Rio to one school district and only one high school. If the district cannot add a second, much-needed high school, then perhaps it should expand the existing campus. Now that it is 2013, about 40 years since the court issued a one-high school mandate to relieve racial discrimination, population in Del Rio has doubled and human relations have evolved. Either way, the current campus offers a chaotic atmosphere that would make academic excellence a dream more than a reality.

Ok, first of all, i'd like you to know that i am actually a student at this school. I currently attend drhs, and if there's one thing i can honestly say, it's that there are no gang problems here. We have excellent teachers here. Do not believe anyone who writes bad reviews. When i read their reviews, they actually made me cry, because they are putting down our school falsely. I am 16 yrs. Old, a junior this year (09-10), and i think this has to be the best school.

Basically if your child has the willingness to learn and push themselves this school provides endless possibilities. I graduated as an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) and there are soooo many other opportunities. Encourage your student to participate in extra curricular activities & Ap/Honors courses. Dual Credit courses are EASILY EASILY EASILY available. (Receive college & high school credit) They saved so much money and time in college. This school was great!!

Very poor at keeping parents informed. They make announcements to the children and expect all information to be relayed to the parents. This is the first of July and I have been waiting for my kids report cards all summer. I finally called and was told that they only mail them if you bring in a self addressed stamped envelope. This is told to the kids but nothing is sent to the parents.

I'm a student here and I would say the teachers are excellent and that we have many clubs and plenty of activities for every kind of person.

As a former student of Del Rio High School, I feel I received the necessary tools for higher education. The faculty and administration staff of SFDRCISD provided me with endless learning opportunities, as well as adopting a student culture rich in camaraderie. I've been involved in athletics all of my life and feel that the athletic program at SFDRCISD is at a level that can compete with all major cities in Texas. General Studies, as well as focal groups aimed at more specific subject matter, is very diverse that gives students options to expand their minds.

Del Rio High School is different from any other. If you are the normal student who goes with the flow, you will get nothing out, hoever, if you challenge yourself and take Ap/Honor classes, and do well on the standarized test you can get into some of the best schools in the nation. Challlenge yourself, ask questions, be involved, get to know teachers, and never accept a no from someone who who does not have the authority to give a no!

Regardless of the large student population DRHS has a level of comradery among students of multi racial and economic backgrounds. The honors classes are well taught and very interpersonal- especially AP classes where in-depth discussion is incouraged. I know little about the non-honors classes offered. Many of the basic courses, especially those taught by athletic coaches, are what one might expect- which is oftentimes mere 'busy-work'. Though there are many extra-carricular activities that range from theater to physics to UIL athletics, parent involvement seems to be at the lower end of the scale and therefore enthusiasm and goal-oriented projects within these 'clubs' are often lacking.

Overcrowded with weak administration leadership. Gangs and poor adherence to dress code. Low TAKS scores, Yet, some occassional successes with graduates attending good colleges.

I am a former student of DeL Rio High School. I also attend the Freshmen Campus And the old 8th grade campus. I would just like to say that I did not think the teachers them selfs were not so educated. I also had trouble in the 8th grade with a bully and yet the former teachers and principals did not do much to help me. I would have to fake being sick so I did not have to attend school. Then when I got to the freshmen campus it still contiued. The only good things about the freshmen campus was my art class and teacher. I was in JROTC and the other members and the instructors were great. I moved away from Del Rio in March of 2004 and I was so happy.
