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 High School is full of diversity. There is a wide range of people seen in this school of 2000 but luckily, many bond well. The school is prided on it's excellent academics and sports. Teachers and administrators are very friendly and always ready to help when they can. There is plenty of school spirit and it brings us together as a family. The only thing I would change is the lunches. The school does not have much control over this aspect.
