Delta High School is a school that practices a very high standard of teachers, staff, and students. Not being a very big fan of high school, my teachers, administrators, and counselors made the four years much better by supporting me and many other students academically as well as personally. If I were to change anything about DHS, I would implement a stricter cussing, PDA, and bullying policy throughout the school. I believe that there should be punishment for using immature language, excessive PDA, and verbal bullying which is currently ignored. Other than these issues, Delta High School is a safe environment with good classes, staff, and resources.

This school has always been great to me. The culture is nothing like you've ever seen before, the most magical times where defiantly during the football season. We just won a game and would sing are fight chant to the stands while the student section would always rush the field to sing with us. After getting cleaned up the cheering didn't stop as all our friends and family would wait outside the locker room to greet us. As we said a quick goodbye to our parents everyone would hop into my classic 71' Chevy and cruise main street listening to Springsteen by Eric Church. After the 11 o'clock drive we eventually all met up at sonic and spend hours talking, eating, laughing, about what ever it was we were talking about. Those are moments I will never forget, and to be apart of such a close and tight net work of amazing people is truly a blessing. Delta High will always have my heart forever and ever.
My experience at DHS was absolutely phenomenal! The teachers and staff were all very helpful and attentive to each and every student. The sports program was very successful and fun to be a part of and the overall atmosphere of the school is very friendly and positive. I attended Delta for all four years of high school so I was able to build connections with my teachers, coaches, and classmates that made going to school something I looked forward to and they became one big family for everyone.
