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.

My personal favorite extracurricular activities and clubs would have to be; FFA, Theater Arts, Ag Mechanics Ag Architectural Design, Welding and 4-H. These clubs and activities are supported highly from the schools administrators and parents of the community. These clubs teachers and advisors are highly committed to teaching and inspiring the students to achieve highly.
The school I currently attend is a wonderful place I have many great moments in it, from Ag shop and FFA events, to school functions such as prep rallies. These very events showed me the authenticity of this school, it showed me that to me it was more of a home and the students and staff family. If I could go back and start over I would in a heart beat. I would repeat the very experiences I have had through my current and present moments in this school.
