Poor teaching where your child won't get the education to graduate university. Poor athletics in the lowest division in the state with little to no opportunity for athletic scholarships. Racism in every aspect of student and community life. Illicit drugs are abundant and expensive.

Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

Their education is usually exactly the same as their students will have: poor. This is opinion

Amount of homework: Too much
June 03, 2015
So much homework is given to the point where people don't do it. School is meant to educate but not challenge to the point where students spend every day of the week on homework from dawn til dusk. Most skip it and never get into a decent university except for the top 3%. Universities don't let these kids in.

Develops respect: Strongly disagree

They don't respect anyone except for their small cliques and even display hatred toward people labelled as outcasts in their own race.

Develops empathy: Strongly disagree

Punishment for minorities is greater but it affects all people negatively. They learn to turn a blind eye.

Develops honesty: Strongly disagree
June 03, 2015
No because of the racism in social school teams basically everywhere. They dont get into university or drop out and they're not prepared for adult life

Well, it's 2009 and I'm a student at SDHS. I like it here but I think we are spending money on stuff that realy wasn't needed and could be spent on a more useful area. It's still nice but if you want to learn here be ready to work.

I'm not a parent but I am a student at SDHS. I will be a senior this year and have really enjoyed the past three years at this school. SDHS is a building that holds many great and talented teachers and staff. They have truely made an impact on our lives whether we tell them or not. Our school has a great edu. system, though the time crunch for SOL's is very difficult and our school is in dire need for remodeling. I do have to say that the condition our school is in does actually distract us from learning. I love SDHS and I hope you will to!

The first of 3 children has just graduated from SDHS. I am very pleased with the education she received. She was accepted to every college she applied. The guidance dept. is fantastic. Use their Website,it's very helpful! Our second daughter is a junior this year. She has chosen not to attend the Governor's school, they are keeping her on a challenging course load. She will be able to compete for her space in College as well. The buliding is in need of repair (ESP the restrooms!) The girls wished for more dances! Overall, I look forward to each of our children to graduate from SDHS and be successful in life.

I highly disagree that this school 'holds diverse students back in favor of others'. I find it to be a school that embraces all students and the staff works very hard for the success of each and every child.

Overall a good school, but if you are a minority, this schools environment will not be conducive to your education. There is absolutely no diversity and the school system does not try to train it's personnel in diversity. There are a lot of 'old school politics' ingrained in this school and community. Therefore, deserving and bright students are often held back to further others with 'connections'.
