Del Mar High School Reviews
I have issues with some administration and staff, just like any other school
Any school will have the same issues, always. This school could be better, with the removal of some staff. People who go to work, but don't actually do anything to collect a check. Staff that criticizes students, and makes them feel unworthy of getting an education. Bullies students, and is completely insensitive to students feelings. If anything is reported, the student is retaliated against in some way. Things need to change. There are some staff that are amazing, but unfortunately for them, they do their job and others to undo wrongs and makeup for the lack of in the school.
