my school is a small school, everyone knows each other and a lot of my friends parents went to the same school as my parents. A lot of the teachers are past graduates. My school allows for everyone to play more then 1 sport and we have a lot of diversity in students. my education experience at deer river high school is just as good if not better then most. we excel in our reading program and our math/science programs are also very , very good.

The food was great! The service we got was even better. The lunch ladies deserve an award for caring so much.
There are many clubs available. There is something for everyone to participate in.
