U.S. News & World Reports - Best High Schools 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015
Principals Real's Message Regarding US News & World Reports Rankings:
Today US News & World Report published their high school rankings for 2015. Once again, DBHS was ranked among the best schools in the state and the nation, receiving gold medal status out of 30,000 US high schools.
Magnet rank: 61st
STEM rank: 87th
I’d like to take a moment to express my gratitude for the community effort it takes to achieve the consistently high rankings that we achieve. Our rankings are a result of a partnership among students, staff, parents, community members, and the district office in supporting the balance provided by our foundations of the four A’s: Academics, Activities, the Arts, and Athletics.
At the center of our foundations is our belief in providing equitable access to opportunities for success to ALL of our students. US News & World Report rankings intend to reflect great high schools that serve all of their students well, not just those who are college bound. These high schools must be able to produce measurable academic outcomes to show how they are successfully educating their student body across a range of performance indicators.

Once again, congratulations to you all on this impressive recognition.
