OMG, thank goodness my daughter was only in this school for two months. They are anal about non important things, the receptionist permanently has PMS and is the rudest person I've ever met. first impressions people. The councillor is a complete moron, and seems so incompetent. My daughter is gifted, and this women didn't seem to understand explanations, because she was so stuck on rules, and kept on wanting to give my daughter classes she already did. After a huge fight we got her into the science program, which this woman said my daughter would never be able to pass, and she got 98%. We moved and my daughter is currently attending Mount Carmel high school. Difference is day and night. An experienced school with staff that actually has braincells!! I pity the poor kids that have to go to Del norte, unless they are fitting into a box of mediocrity and don't mind never being challenged.
