Derby High School Ratings & Reviews

From the time I enrolled my child in the Derby school district in 6th grade, neither him and I were never accepted. Once those teachers put a “label” on a child, it sticks with him/her throughout the rest of their years in the Derby school district.

Concerning the band program, I have seen no instances of favoritism in my four years of marching band and Wind Ensemble. For example, my friend didn't make marching band her freshman year and remained in concert band the entire year, but by her junior year she was sitting first chair in Wind Ensemble, the best band in the school. DeVault, the band director, provides equal opportunities that every band student is able to utilize. Further, the marching band audition process is necessary to the well-being of the band. The marching band is comprised of 170 students, and through a rigorous rehearsal schedule we are able to produce a quality half-time show every year. In fact, in the 2013 season we received straight Superior ratings at the K-State festival and we were named Grand Champions of the Neewollah Marching Festival in Independence. The band program has taught me a lot about myself, given me the opportunity to make new friends, and it has by far been the best experience I have had at this school since my freshman year. Please do not get discouraged by some of the accusations in these reviews; I definitely would recommend joining the band to anyone.

I had three children go to this school from 9th to 12th. Two have graduated so far. I feel that for the most part it has been a good experience. I agree with most that has been said good on here, but also agree with the one negative. That is favoritism, especially in band-choir-and sports. All three of my children have talents that they pursued, but students with a certain name do tend to land in parts regardless of talent. One student could not block for nothing (well known family), but never got pulled from the game---ever. One in Madrigals (my son was in this too) who absolutely could not sing or dance. This is pretty typical but sad. Other than that...great school.

Derby High School is definitely a great school. Being military and close to retirement, we chose to stay here to keep our teens in this school. My only problem that I have seen is favoritism in the marching band. I have always been a large supporter of the marching band telling everyone I know to come and watch this amazing band. However, the band has now changed and it does not seem for the better. They lost a few competitions last year and now instead of anyone who wants to be in marching band can join, you have to audition and a lot of it is favoritism. It seems punish the masses for the few. I will still support this school and tell anyone I know to come, give this school a try. However, they have now lost a supporter with the marching band.

Over crowded student to teacher ratio to high. easy for a kid to get lost because of the size. The school district will not split schools to better the education because it might affect the quality of the sports. There are many better options around Derby for a quality education.
