I have been in the same district all my life and I don’t think I have ever been introduced to anything better! Deer Park high school for me has its ups and downs, but I wouldn’t rather go to any other school. I am in the Early College program at my school and I was in the gist group to be apart of it at my high school. I love the fact that I am able to have this opportunity and also that I am able to speak with my counselor whenever I need to. Whether they are helping me out with the program or just some problems I may be having in my day to day life. I also want to mention that the staff and teachers are amazing! They really care about their students and what they will become in the future.

Deer Park High School is great in many regards, there's a top-level athletics program and it's also extremely academically competitive. They offer wonderful advanced learning courses and many different clubs for all different types of students. However, that being said, there are a few not-so-great things about the school. For instance, the majority of the school's funding goes directly to the varsity athletics teams, and not the the other organizations that are in need, such as JROTC, or Robotics. It's not to say that they're barely staying alive, but they aren't doing as well as they could be.
My experience at Deer Park High School was wonderful! I always felt safe, the teachers genuinly cared about the students success. I was always able to get help from them. But one thing I would like to see improve was the councilors help.
