Deer Lakes School District Reviews

I have been in the Deer Lakes school district since kindergarten and have completely enjoyed my experience. The teachers and staff are always helpful and pushing their students to the best of their abilities. I can honestly say that without all of my encouraging and motivating teachers, I would not be where I am today. It is an overall welcoming environment, full of success and pride. The one thing I would like to see a change in is the amount of opportunities presented to the students. I feel as though there could be more extracurricular activities offered by the school. Other than that, Deer Lakes has been a wonderful place to attend school, allowing me to make great memories and receive an outstanding education.

Deer Lakes School District has provided me with an excellent education. The teachers I have had are incredibly passionate about their students. They are constantly aiding us in our college searches and supporting us in our future en-devours. They have been a huge amount of help to me in my entire high school career, and for that I am forever grateful. Deer Lakes High School teachers go above and beyond for their students.
One of the greatest small school districts in all of the Pittsburgh area. Teachers display a true passion for their work. Athletics taken very seriously, lots of time and money devoted to them. Lots of school spirit and a warm community of people.
