I love the small town community. I think that the school should tighten up! I have many great memories and would recommend raising your kid here. The only thing I would change is the students, but nothing can be done about them. ;)

DeKalb High School is a great school that prepares students for their future. For instance, this school offers many college classes that students can have access too. However, there are some things this school could change. For example, the cafeteria could have more or different food.
My school has good qualified trained and experienced teachers that provide you with the best education possible. I believe De Kalb High School is a wonderful school in East Texas. We are a small 3A school with different ethnicities, but we come together as a family. We also have a magnificent athletics program we’re are coaches want us to strive to do better.
