Delavan-Darien High School was opened in 1957 and has undergone several major expansions and renovations since.
Today, more than 750 students are educated by about 90 staffers the facility's the state-of-the-art classrooms.
With the exception of the gymnasium balconies and pool viewing area, the high school is entirely on one level, making it very handicapped accessible.
The school is home to nationally-recognized music programs (including multiple bands, orchestras and choirs); a FAB Lab (complete with the latest 3-D printers and CNC machines); a Project Lead The Way computer lab and creation space; a greenhouse and agricultural sciences center; an art gallery and renovated auditorium; biology, chemistry and physics labs; two gymnasiums complimented by a cardio fitness room, weight room, group workout area, a 24-foot indoor climbing wall and a 25-yard pool.
The RISE program offers an alternative education pathway for students who find that traditional classrooms don't meet their individual learning needs.
Between Advanced Placement Courses and articulated credit agreements with multiple colleges and universities, students have more than 40 options to earn post-secondary credits. We've had students graduate from DDHS who were nearly complete with their sophomore year of college!
On top of all that, each student at Delavan-Darien High School has a Chromebook that can be taken home to enhance studies and bring the vast resources of the Internet to their fingertips.
