Donna High School is actually a great school. The work is incredibly rigorous and the teachers are amazing in every way. Everyone at DHS is committed to helping the student learn and ultimately graduate and attend a university or college. Donna High is a great school regardless of the bad media and reputation that people associate with it. The school is really disciplined and responsible and will ensure success. Also, the school has a great deal of spirit and traditions that just reinforce a great high school education and atmosphere. DHS is the place to be.

Donna High School is a truly great school. Sure it may be on the local news often, but every school has it's flaws. I am a transfer student from Sharyland High School and when I arrived, it was not what I expected. It is not all easy work and easy grades. You do have to pursue what you want, in this case, academic achievement. There are numerous students that I have met, and there are a large number that are exceptionally talented. You can't just judge our school by what you see on the news, you have to experience it first hand and then come up with your conclusion.

I am an alumni and all I have to say is that Im proud from graduating from Donna. The teacher's are caring and very determined to make sure you graduate and get into a good school. Altough the counselors didn't help much if you weren't top 20, they did still help. I wasn't top 20 but if i wanted to graduate in the top area i had to do things myself, which was good at the end cause kids these days want things to be given to them. We can't just depend on the counselors to call for us, we have to learn to take things in on our hands. Which isn't bad but some students might feel neglected if you aren't in the top 20 or an athlete. Donna is like any normal school and I would recommend it to any one.

I am currently attending Donna High School and I have to say that it has expanded my mind in a thousand ways, I passed the TAKS tests in all areas, I have really caring teachers, they are all well prepared and I can't complain. The staff is working hard to help us the students, and I am thankful for that. I go to UIL competitions and our team does very well.

Having one son graduated from Donna High and a daughter currently attending as a sophomore, I have to admit that I have no problems with this school whatsoever. My children have never had any problems passing the TAKS, they have even scored on a commended performance level in almost every area each time. That to me proves the education quality is there and it's up to the individual student to want to learn. Parents need to stop blaming the educational system in Donna and start being more responsible for raising good kids who are expected to learn.

It's not as bad as they make it to be. I strongly disagree with some of the policies (like dress code)to some extent, but there's some really caring teachers and pleasant students there. They have a pretty good variety of extracurricular and academic programs to choose from. The problem is that most students don't really know about them. It's a decent school.

It is clear that sports are important in the valley, mainly because the options there for kids is minimal. However, just because that is where the focus lies does not mean parents have to buy into that. Have your child join UIL, get involved, create a PTA. It is best to take action instead of complain. There are some really great teachers at DISD, they need your support as well.

The academic in Donna High is very minimal. Graduating from there, I know that they only work with a few people (jocks) the average student, like myself had to struggle to recieve my diploma. The band was a very good. They have gone to state and is very recognized. Paretns are involed mainly during football season, it's usually the fans and band fans.
