My experience at DCHS was phenomenal. The administration, faculty, staff, counselors, and teacher''s were top notch. The academics were challenging and rigorous with many class choices and options. There were many clubs and organizations available, i.e. (FCA). The sport programs were outstanding at all levels. I loved the school campus. The band room, auditorium, commons, library, weight room etc. were all remodeled, clean and spacious. The field house is huge and impressive with locker rooms. We were provided updated lab and computer equipment along with current learning material and software. My experiences at DCHS were full of activities, fun, but most of all, my education prepared and equipped me for college and my future! The school is well-rounded in culture and diversity! Proud Eagle!!!
