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.

Delta High School is a very small, public school in the middle of the desert, in a state with the third lowest school funding across the nation. That being said, the staff of Delta High tries their hardest to use their limited resources to prepare each student for their next step in life, whether that be entering the workforce or going to college. The school has little diversity, but manages to be supportive and accepting of students differences, none the less. An important part of the school's culture is sports and clubs, where the students have the chance to be apart of a family. Overall Delta High is a decent place for quality education, and a solid foundation for a students future to be built upon.
Delta High School is a very small high school with not many students but its not like that small that everyone knows each other, for example me I was your average non-existing Mexican girl there. Going through my whole high school experience kind of invisible and brown it some what sucked. Why well because the teachers and the principles have favorites. For example if you play football, volleyball, or wrestling you were mostly likely be the favorite of either a teacher or a principle and being the favorite comes with some special treatment and that's not okay. That is one major defect that I would love if it changed because they shouldn't treat students differently because she/he likes him/her better then this other person. Trust me they notice, well I surely did, and it makes them feel enraged and even sometimes unwanted. No one should feel like. Other than having favoritism, Delta High School is a very cordial school.
