Delta County Joint School District No. 50 Reviews

I love the teachers and the academics but the overall culture and diversity in the district could be improved. Our teachers interact with each student individually and are always happy to help outside of class. We are able to come in early before school, stay in during lunch, and stay after school to receive extra help from teachers. For being such a small school we have an impressively wide range of classes available for all levels. Between all of the schools in the district, we offer almost every AP class and a wide range of college-level dual enrolment courses. The one thing that our district could improve is its level of diversity. The atmosphere isn't socially and culturally diverse. We only have a few clubs and organizations and while they aren't selective to who can participate it would be nice to have more organizations focussed on diversity.

Delta County is a great, tight knit community. The members put in great effort to keep it up and running to its fullest potential. The schools are all wonderful, and the athletics are all very competitive yet inclusive to all that want and do participate. The community plays such a huge role because of their wonderful donations and support to the schools. Its a wonderful place with many small shops and local businesses. I only wish that the community businesses could stay in business longer. The economy takes a large toll on the county and the schools, and it is difficult to provide all the necessary items schools need. However, thats where the communities donations come in to handy!
As a student of this district, I felt apart of a welcoming school and community who had my best interest in mind. I was assisted with college readiness planning and having the opportunity to take high-level courses to lessen the financial burden. However, being such a small town with a small budget leaves things such as cleanliness of bathrooms, locker rooms, etc. low and hard to compete with other bigger schools around us.
