My children got a very good education at Derby High School. They were prepared for the next step of their life. Some things that I did not like were that there was a lot of money poured into sports and band. The students who were not athletic but into the performing arts did not see as much support as those in sports, especially football. I also wish the class size was a little smaller.
Derby is a very united district. We care for one another and support each other through everything. Weather its through sports or academics people are always there for you. The teachers are great and care very much so for you future athletically and educationally.
