Deer Park Independent School District Reviews

Deer Park is a great school district. The amount of pride my school has is immense. The academics here are very good and the AP courses challenge you and prepare you for college well. The only aspect about DPISD I would change is the poor diversity the district maintains. I am one of only miniscule amount Asians in my high school. However, the district has great teachers that administrators. I would personally give DPISD an overall rating of 4 and a half stars!

Deer Park ISD is a very good school district. Academics wise, the district is very fair and enriches students. They have very good classes and programs such as GT, dual credit, AP classes, PALS, co-op, and FFA. They are very political though when it comes to sports. You have better opportunities if your parents are heavily involved with the city or district. They are pretty diverse culturally. They have a good variety of clubs as well and give students the opportunity to participate in a variety of things.
My experience at this district was good academic wise, but lacked socially until high school. In elementary and junior high, I never felt like I was ok. The school didn't help much on bullying and I was forced to be an outcast and was often in trouble because i wasn't able to adjust to school schedules and how they thought I should have behaved. Although, I had gotten better over time without medication and on my own. I think the school should help kids adjust instead of using medication and disciplinary actions to correct habits and behaviors of kids who have trouble in a school setting.
