In a front page Albuquerque Journal story, DNHS Principal Jo Sloan and Dean of Students Chris Welsh discussed the school’s improvement from an F to a C over the past year. According to the article, Sloan said she believes the improvement comes down to persistence and hard work. “We are trying to make sure kids are here consistently” she said. “We have to get buy-in,” Welsh said. “School has to be a priority in your life.” He went on to stress that Del Norte teachers and staff are always working very hard, even when they receive a low school grade.
