Derby School District Reviews
Small community, small town home town pride. Teachers are always there to support you and push you to do better. I was able to take honors and AP courses to help further my academic career. I always felt a sense of comfort knowing I was in smaller classes and teachers knew my personality my traits. I enjoyed partaking in two sport teams being captain for both. I was on the class act council which promotes students to help others and help the community.
What I would like to see the change in Derby High School is the involvement of students in class work and class time. Most students in this school do not care about the work they do. They are mostly on their phones and do not pay attention in class. In all honesty, it not their fault. There is no motivation in this school. Half of the teachers in this school just let the students do as they want and focus more on the students who want to learn and let the other students fall deeper into the cracks.
My overall experience with Derby School District is not a good one. I have been going to school in the Derby district for my whole life and I have been 'force passed' in the middle school and had to repeat in Milford district just to understand the curriculum that the teachers were teaching. After my year in Milford, I came back to the Derby district and it was not the same at all. I almost failed my freshman year. I have had to complain multiple times to the faculty and staff.
