Deer Park Union Free School District Reviews

As a student in the Deer Park Union Free School District, my experience was very good overall. This school district has many courses which have helped me realize the career field which I would like to go into. I have taken many courses on marketing and management, both regular and college, which have shown me that I would like to go into that field in the future. Also, my success in the AP and college classes that I have taken shows that the teaching staff has done a great job. Also, one more thing that I love about the Deer Park Union Free School District is that our school is extremely diverse. Many other school districts are heavily populated with a certain race or culture but since ours is extremely diverse, it shapes us into people with a much better understanding of the world that we live in.

My daughter recently completed the Kindergarten program. Her teacher was amazing, they offer a ton of push in services for all of the students not just those who are falling behind. JQA truly feels like a family. Very excited for 1st grade!
I thought that this school was both involved but unsafe. The amount of problems among the children in the school continue to grow. When children should be in class they roam around the hallways. The teachers try their best however the children will not listen. Most teachers teach very well their especially in the math and sciece departments, however all teachers have different ways of teaching their children and some students may find a certain way unbeneficial to them. The thing I would love to see change at this school is definitely the safety of children. They shouldn't be able to cut class whenever they want and get a warning card. This should be taken very seriously however other than that the school was amazing and pushed me to work harder and better myself for the future.
