Derby Middle School Ratings & Reviews

Having seen a number of school districts i have to say this is the weakest I’ve come across, oddly it’s in the most expensive district we’ve lived. Unfortunately we should have picked Troy for our kids sake.

My children attend Derby, their Teachers and Staff do a wonderful job. They address issues when necessary, and I feel the no bullying policy is effective.

"The Derby community is safe and nice, however there academics are weak. The district treats you like an criminal trying to ""sneak into their schools."" My child enjoying going to Derby because of the movies, parties and not having to study."

As a parent I liked the Derby family. As students, my children liked many of their teachers and classmates. They are pretty well rounded kids. They made friends here and learned from largely good teachers. I think they felt supported by the staff who knew them by name. Birmingham is an excellent district. In spite of state wide budget cuts in all Michigan schools Derby continues to offer classes and programs other schools and districts have been forced to cut. I'd recommend sending your middle schooler here if you live in the area! If you are looking to relocate, this school is definitely a plus for the area. Schools sell real estate. Moving to the Birmingham district has distinct advantages for resale value. Good school.

"Though I had many great experiences at Derby, I would not give it five stars because of the social problems there. There were many classes to choose from, and I could even take advanced classes for one subject but get exceptional help from a teacher in a different subject. But I always felt as though many of my friends didn't support me, and the staff did little to help solve problems with bullying or ""drama."" I also felt judged by clothes that I wore to school. Many kids would wear expensive designer clothes and would judge me because my parents wouldn't let me get an iPhone until the 8th grade. There were also many cyber-bullying instances that I heard about. Though there were some teachers who taught very poorly, most of the staff were amazingly caring, kind, concerned in their students academic progress. There were many teachers I will never forget because of the great learning experiences! The only thing I would want Derby to improve on is how they handled inappropriate behavior in both girls and boys alike; some of the teachers seemed very wishy-washy when it came to rule enforcement. Overall, I enjoyed Derby academically and I would recommend it. -A former student"
