Deer Creek High School Reviews

It really isn’t the best place to go, the teachers let the kids get away with things easily and the same goes for what the what they do amongst themselves. The school cares more about the sports then they do academically. The cleanliness is absolutely horrible! The bathrooms are so disgusting and same with the cafeteria and just about any other place in the school! I don’t know how many times I’ve gotten food from the cafeteria and something has been wrong with it. The way they treat support staff is bad too!I could go on and on about all the bad things there. I think the only good thing is that some of the teachers do generally care and try to help students out.

The thing with Deer Creek is that it is full of self-righteous, ungrateful rich kids. Unless you own Lulu Lemon and drive a BMW, you don't fit in. Kids whose parents donate to the school and participate in Deer Creek's number one money maker, sports, are heavily favored. The art program has no funding, forcing students to buy their own supplies. Want to go into any art industry? The counselors have zero resources to help you. For as good of a reputation as they have for the success rates of their students, teachers give lots of extra credit, making it extremely easy to get an A in any class. The requirements for being Valedictorian are so low that there are 50 graduating Valedictorians this year, some who are only in the top 40% of the class. There is little tolerance for self-expression and heavy pressure to conform to the Deer Creek society. I still rank my experience 3 stars, however, because I'm not sure the Oklahoma public educational system is better at any other school.
A stressful environment of harmful AP-culture, however this is somewhat remedied by the amount of excellent and supportive teachers. Yet, because of the limited salary and opportunities for teachers in this district, many of them leave much too soon. Sadly, the student population is growing at an exponential rate without the staff or facilities to support it.
