I'd like it if parental involvement was more welcomed in this school. Few teachers return completed work for the student to review what they missed.

I don't feel like I learned as much in Denison High School as others did in their high schools. Denison High School is so focused on the state assessment tests! That is all I learned the four years I was there. How to take the assessment tests, study the practice assessment tests, be drilled by teachers on what the assessment tests will have on them, assessment test this, assessment test that... I understand the testing is important to determine if the school is doing its job. But it's not doing its job if that's all it teaches. That's all I learned. After my first year of college, I know I am ill equipped. I should have been taught so much more in HS. Sure Denison is nationally ranked because of its high scores on assessment tests, but at the cost of me being given a proper education. I will need to take some remedial courses to catch up on what I wasn't taught.
