    Overall Experience: While the construction was very bothersome, the finished product was worth it! Even if I only got to experience it for my last week there. Still an incredible four years!

    Overall Experience: Went to school there towards the end of my senior year I had to move from Chandler, AZ at the time I was going to Hamilton High School to Orlando, FL to this school in march of 2012. So I didn't know alot of people here and the school was okay.

    Overall Experience: Dr.Phillips has some of the greatest teacher, but the students can be the worst. They have no respect for teachers and fell as if they can say what they want. The faculty also thinks that they are above us, they can treat us how they want and say what's really on their mind. The principal is okay, she has her moments. I think it's because she came from a higher school than us, she enforces her rules a lot more. The education you can reiceve at DPHS is amazing, you just can't fall asleep in class. I wish the faculty wouldn't worry so much about how were sometimes out of dress code, and more about how were doing in our classes. Occasionally ask us if we need more assitance in the subject or give us credit for doing the work.

    Overall Experience: I was in theater. So I spent most of my time on the stage or roaming the halls. You'll learn a lot in this school. There are times you'll feel.alone and than times when you wish you were.
