Damonte Ranch High School Ratings & Reviews

The problem with a school for the performing arts is that it comes at the cost of everything else. The school has 2 great teachers, Mrs McKibbon for English and Mr Rosenfeld for Ceramics. Excellent caring teachers. Unfortunately, the rest of the school doesn't keep up. My son is moderately intelligent (IQ testing around 120) but in special ed for autism. The solution to any behavioral issues seems to be to pull the student from class and park them in an SSTS class. In March, I told the special ed team that I did not see my son on a path to graduation. I was ignored. At the end of 9th grade, he had credit for 1 year of English, 1 year of ceramics, and 1 semester of Biology. We moved him to Northstar, where he is keeping up with his classes and getting good grades, but unless he takes at least 2 extra classes each year, he will need a 5th year of highschool to have the classes he needs for the Millenium Scholarship and college. I think tht Damonte, ignoing his stated goals of advanced education in the environmental field, simply intended to give him a "special" diploma when he wants and is fully capable of earning an Advanced diploma.

Damonte Ranch has great teachers and a loving staff. They go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure the kids succeed. My son Tevin loves this school and so do I!!!

I am not impressed with this school, The teachers are obviously very one sided and present their own political views. A new school so looks nice but education and support of parents is extremely questionable. The principal, vice principal and counselors do not work well with the parents. My oldest daughter attended this school but I definitely will not send my youngest. Seeking other options right now.

I attended Damonte Ranch the first semester of my freshman year and really just found the place to be nothing more than mediocre. The teachers are overwhelmed with students and often have trouble controlling the class. I took honors courses and all of my classes had anywhere from 30 to 40 students. The school also has too much invested in their athletes. For example, all football players were in honors level classes. and a good portion just contributed to the chaos. Furthermore, I know that the education here is subpar regardless of what they tell you. I've moved around the country my entire life and Damonte doesn't teach what the other high schools do. For example, we spent two months in an honors english class memorizing "words commonly confused". These words include all ready vs. already as well as to vs. too, ect. Overall however, I don't think it's fair to blame all of this on the school it was the kids not caring or applying themselves too. Overall, Damonte has friendly kids and nice teachers class time is mostly spent handling obnoxious kids or reviewing elementary concepts. Scholars, stay away.

Damonte is a good school, I had graduated with the class of 2011 and had been there since 8th grade. All the teachers for the most part were really good teachers, they expected you to try and work for the grade that you earn, if you need extra help they have IC time to go to your class for help, also there was always the counseling office that would help to figuring out problems that I came across. There were also a lot of tutoring sessions available to the students that needed help, and the information and sign up was found through the councilors. Through experience the more involved my parents were with my high school career by calling my counselor if they had questions about what was going on it helped the administration to see who really wanted to be there to learn and who was being there because they had to. Use the resources that this school has available, I mean there is a Career Center for a reason. The CC became my best friend my senior year, also realize that they more respectful that the students are to the teachers the less likely they are to be kicked out. This includes being prepared for binder checks, and any other assignments.
