David Crockett High School Ratings & Reviews
I have grandchildren attending DCHS. I pick my grandson up as a car rider in the afternoon. It is so nice to see him smile and see the excitement he has about going to school. No arguments about getting homework and he is excited about going back to school the next day. He talks about things he did during the day in the car going home. He tells me about discussions they have in the classroom. He likes school. DCHS is doing something right.
Reading these comments somewhat upset me until I realized how outdated they were. Crockett has undergone some much needed changes, and the school as a whole is better. Crockett offers many AP and Jumpstart opportunities along with teachers that not only academically challenge a student, but actually commit things to their long-term memory. I am a current student at Crockett, and I have to say that the extracurricular activities offered are excellent. The FFA is nationally ranked as a three star chapter, which is the highest ranking on a national level, the HOSA is well known for its blood droves and community involvement, and many more of the schools clubs are nationally and locally recognized. I believe that Crockett has fulfilled all of my expectations as far as education and overall discipline go. I would recommend Crockett to anyone looking for a school in the area.
I am sad to say that I am very unhappy with our experience with Crockett. I think that there are several wonderful teachers there, but unfortunately they were severely limited in their ability to give a good education, Students should not be allowed to turn in late work and get full credit. All that the student gets from that is the impression that slacking is acceptable, and why bother. What happens after high school?! The teachers are "forced" to do this in order that everyone passes. Attendance issues are ignored until totally out of control, and then the parents are still not notified! "We don't have the staff and have bigger discipline issues." If the attendence problem is nipped in the bud, they may find they won't have nearly the amount of "bigger" issues! Athletics, especially football, are implied to be more important than school work.
Crockett High is a great school with an awesome physical fitness program. They also have a great band! Most teachers will help each student before school if they need help in any subject. The parents can get involved in most events by going to the school website! Enjoy Crockett.
Most of the teachers are cool but the guidance teachers are awful except Ms. Story. I think other than that, its a great school. Just Hire some Guidance teachers that care!
