Deerfield Beach has many activities and programs that are for all kinds of students. It offers a variety of foreign languages such as French, Japanese, and Spanish. Deerfield also offers programs like the International Baccalaureate program and Communication Broadcasting Arts. However, with all of these good things come some bad, the campus isn't always the cleanest due to students making a mess. Key club volunteers to do a campus clean-up after school at least once a quarter. Administration tries their best to enforce the rules but sometimes it feels as though they don't listen to the students.

I love the structure of the school itself. As you walk into the Main Entrance it's gated & secure. The resourses you need is so conveniently mapped so that if you the library, or a principal, a bathroom, the cafeteria, or a guidance counselor, or just simply pick your child up or drop them off, it's a parent/student friendly vice school. I'm really impressed so see the support of Alumni dedication to give back to students. They give students a sense of Pride to want to come to school. Most of the teachers show concern despite their work load. The guidance counselors, Ms. Tracey Cerra such an asset really work hard to get to know each students goals & place them accordingly as well as Mrs. Michelle Scott whose a deck of All trades... And Mrs. Philpart whose stern, but operates in the spirit of Excellence.. I'm so glad I transferred my Twin boys to Deerfield Beach High.
One thing I like about Deerfield Beach High School is the CBA program. The hallway is very welcoming, and the classes they offer there have a lot of variety and diversity. Kids who are in the program will learn about film, animation, journalism, photoshop, etc. Also, people who like to play football are lucky because we have one of the best football teams there. However, this school could do better by fixing the hallways and getting it cleaned up here and there.
