Durango HS is an amazing school! Most of the population is spirited and the teachers are great . I graduated this year (2014) and I am extremely proud to say I graduated from Durango hs, I wouldn't want to go to any other high school. I went to Durango for 3 years , my freshmen year I attended spring valley which personally I don't recommend. The children have attitude and are belligerent. The school is not spirited at all and I hated my teachers. I came to Durango my sophomore year and have loved this school all 3 years, I loved the assemblies , the spirit days , the sports , the pep rallies , everything ! But the most important learning! Teachers made my days worthwhile. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone ! Hs is a fun experience if you enjoy and get involved ! If your child is not involved then they probably won't have much fun , but if they go to Durango maybe other students can convince them to ! My high school experience at Durango was awesome and I'm so thankful I attended this school ! Go trailblazers !

Great school, great staff. One of the best schools in Las Vegas. Teachers are outstanding and seem to care about the kids.

Durango High School is a fantastic place for students to learn academically, socially, and grow emotionally. The majority of the teaching staff consistently goes above and beyond to ensure maxmium care and attention is provided to all.

It doesn't like a school, but club. Staffs were not acting professional. How you expect all the teenage students to be nice??? I guess that's what the principal likes.

staff was inpatient and rude to me. I was very disappointed as I gave my feedback to the secretary of principal regarding their staff, and she ignored and didn't want to listen.

It is one of the terrible school. staff is rude and helpless. the secretary of principal acts like a watch dog and wouldn't let me give my feedback to principal. I would never let my kid go to this school if I have had other choices.

Durango is a school like all others that struggles with discipline at times. Some kids misbehave and some do not - and that's life. However, the school has many excellent teachers, great students and involved parents. Schools are only as good as their administration, teachers, kids and parents, and my children have been very satisfied with this school - and grandkids will go there too!

Its not the schools responsiblilty to teach kids english in HS or any other school. These parents that get upset are down right ridiculous...do you think if I took my family to Mexico my kids would get taught in there native language? that would be a big fat no! We transfered to Durango this year after being in a Private School for 11 yrs and have been pleasantly surprised. The only class my child has is the one that the teacher doesnt speak Enlish!

Are you parents delusional? It is not the school's fault that some students are out of control, fight everyday and destroy the campus. Obviously they are out of control at home - and bring that same behavior to school. And why can't your child speak English if they are in High School? Again, it is not the school's responsibility to teach English to a Las Vegas high school student. Do your job parents - and you will make it much easier for the school to do theirs! Durango is just like every other high school, you expect a miracle without doing your job first. My daughter is an Honors student and doing well. She learned how to cope and how to succeed at home. . .

first of all if its education u want take them out of state. Nevada is ranked 49 state in all of U.S. Durango, in my opinion is average. I've seen schools much worse than Durango. The Faculty is amazing for those who take honors and A.P. but for those who take regular, well the teachers are a little worn out with the ridiculous kids. I would like to talk their parents. The parents are ridiculous for not do anything about their childs behavior. Its not the school i concerned with; its the students. The teachers are awesome and teach well. Overall i would recomend Durango for those who do not on moving out of las vegas any time soon. By the way the teachers are not allowed to do anything to the students or otherwise they get fired. So its up to the parents to control their children not the teachers.

I am a parent of two children @ durango and i believe it could be a much better place for me to have to send my children to. 50% (Or more) of the staff there could care less, or don't have the knowledge to care enough. The violence is unexceptable. At least 3 times p/wk a child is sent to emergency rm for being jumped. They have absolutely no control over the students or the surrounding area. It is terrifying every day to send my kids there.
