Most of the teachers I have had in Deer Park High School, I have loved! Most teachers are fun, approachable, and have interesting lessons. In fact, sometimes I skip lunch to hang out with some of my favorites. Deer Park High School is known for our awesome teachers, we (the students) boast about them all the time. Teaching skills and styles are fantastic, if a student does not understand something, teachers 9/10 times try to help the student out. I "live" at my school. My schoolmates and teachers are a second family to me. Teachers are always there to comfort children. Of course there will always one teacher every year that makes one regret taking their class. But overall, teachers in DPHS are awesome!

Administration recognized students who were athletes more than those that were academic achievers. Teachers were more likely to engage in conversation and special treatment of their popular students. Inappropriate referral to students to those that couldn't meet achieving standards. I had a teacher that told another student "that one isn't too bright" because I struggled in an AP class. Teachers were more likely to change stories about their child's behaviors and treatment at parent teacher conferences depending on the type of parent.
Deer Park High School is a relatively small high school. From my time in it, it seems as though everyone got along together pretty well. The food here is very limited. There are only 3 decent options. A perk is going out for lunch as a senior which is very generous. The teachers for honors and AP are very good in pretty much all subjects. The resources such as guidance and the library are average but get the job done. Sports here are not the best in terms of performance overall, but it does get a lot of students involved both athletes and fans. A very good thing about this high school is the multitude of things to be involved with in terms of clubs and activities.
