Downriver High School Ratings & Reviews
I have taught in other schools in the area and I know that Carlson High School is a leader in academics, extracurricular activities, and sports. For the last 7 years I have had the pleasure of teaching Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Forensic Science at Carlson High School. In all of my classes, I emphasize the importance of learning science in order to be prepared to study many of the science and medical fields in college which in turn lead to interesting high-paying careers. I often explain the scientific concepts that the students learn in class and how it is related to my former career as a Medical Technologist in hospital laboratories, and to the careers of my husband, two daughters, and son-in-law. (Chemist, Doctorate of Pharmacy, Nurse Practitioner, and Mechanical Engineer.) Carlson High School is a well organized high school that instills the importance of self-discipline and good behavior which is necessary for students to be able to learn effectively.
I attended this school from 2001 to 2004, and it went through a lot of growth and progress at that time, a after visiting recently, I see that that progress not only continues but has exponentially grown. This is a great environment for teens that for whatever reason had trouble attending their "regular" school. The teachers and office staff are warm and committed to their jobs, and committed to encouraging kids to show their best side, by working not only on school subjects, but also on character, community, and responsibility. The sense I get from this school is that it will only get better. I'm really proud to have gone to this school. My parents had reservations about the program, but if I hadn't have gone to DHS I wouldn't have finished high school, and contrary to my parent's fears, I had no problems getting into a private college after I was done. Great Place.
Our family became involved wih DHS two years one of our daughter's graduated in 09, We also have our youngest daughter who will graduate with the class of 2011 at the age of 16. Both our daughters chose to join the DHS family, I'm so proud of the choice they made it was a lesson to me, Never judge until you see with your own eyes. What makes DHS a success?? 2 word THE STAFF. If you want your child to get the most out of their education send them to DHS you won't ever regret it. I will always support DHS even long after our daughter graduates in June. I hope one person with doubts reads this and has their child check out the school and the staff they will find no place with staff so wonderful. Better yet join us for Graduation ans see the success for yourself you'll be amazed. HATS OFF TO ALL AT DHS YOU ROCK
I wish there would be more dedicated principals and teachers in this world like at DHS. The Principal and the teachers give truly-from their heart and knowledge- back to the Community.They make these teenagers to succeed in life while giving them the self assurance they need so badly.This is what real dedication and real "pedagogy" is all about. My greatest respect, appreciation to the entire staff at DHS. My daughter is graduating and we thank you for it.Best wishes and continued success to all of you.
children a chance to have a better life a chance to finish school and go one to bigger and better things! There wasn't a day that went by that I didn't see a teacher pop there head into the daycare to say hi to the babies! I miss DHS and everyone there and I will be there soon to visit!!! <333
