Welcome to the Denfeld Guidance Department

About Denfeld High School.....Denfeld High School is located in Duluth, Minnesota next to the shores of Lake Superior.  With a population of almost 85,000, the city of Duluth provides diversified business, professional and industrial services to northeastern Minnesota.  Denfeld High School serves approximately the western half of the city and has been in existence since 1905.


Denfeld has a long tradition of excellence and demonstrates these standards in its classrooms.  This is evident in that three quarters of our students go on to some form of further education or training.  Approximately 34% of graduating seniors go on to four year colleges or universities and 37% go on to two year schools.  The remaining students enter the military or the work force.
