Deland High School is overall an incredible school and environment. The teachers I have learned from are very dedicated and the administration does an excellent job at keeping the students and other faculty safe. The environment at this school is also not as intimidating as other high schools in the area. One thing I would like to see improve is the efficiency in the scheduling process of switching in and out of courses. The process of changing my schedule to be enrolled in the classes necessary for graduation was a longer process than expected. But as that is the only inconvenience i have experienced, this school has been nothing but a great experience and learning environment!

What I love about DeLand High School is how everyone comes together during event and even crisis. We are like one big family especially when it comes to our support in our sport teams and extra activity’s such as homecoming and the parade. Also, when we had that shooting and someone vandalized our school, we all came together with support for one another. My high school experience at DeLand high has been a great one and I recommend that school for everyone. Not because it’s “the best school” but because it’s like your new family. Even the teachers become a big part of your life and help you and encourage you when you need it the most. I’m dual enrolled now and don’t have many classes at the high school but I still go and visit my teachers from past years because of how much I love them! Some of them I actually consider to be my second mom. The experience has just been amazing and I’m so excited for my little sister to experience it in a year!
When I first went to Deland high as a freshman I was for sure excited.Of course being nervous was normal and they let us know that.I remember when they let the Freshmans come only to see the school and they gave us a shirt to wear and and we took our class picture,(Im class of 2021)But after I got use to seeing how high school is I got the hang of it.What I liked a lot was the fact they'd have fun activities during lunch,whether it was allowing students to dance while they'd played music or have the Navy come and let students bust out some pull ups.It was a fun experience and the sportsmanship of people was great! I went and decided to join ROTC and honestly that was one of the best choices I've made in my life.ROTC definitely changed some things about me especially when it comes to bettering my mindset.Every Friday we'd do personal fitness and they'd push us to do more as a motivation.I like how the school was with ROTC as well.It was a fun experience and still is.
