I made a ton of memories with all the teachers and staff members. Everyone there was great! There was always a teacher or an administrator who was always there to help you with whatever was needed. The Brace Adviser there is absolutely great. She always made sure she was available to all the seniors who needed anything regarding college and future careers.

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.
My experience here was neither good or bad, it was just very unmemorable. The education offered here is not very good. I found it rare to have a teacher who knows what they're doing and actually teaches the material in a way that students understand. I have had really bad experiences with my science teachers, so many of them are not teaching in areas that they studied in college and are just teaching whatever position was available. There's also a lack of extracurriculars and clubs in comparison to neighboring schools.
