Deer Park High School Ratings & Reviews
I am a 2002 graduate who went on to have a great college experience at Iona College in New Rochelle NY. While at DPHS I was a member of the Lacrosse team, learned to drive, participated in every Home Coming event (even was the homecoming king), attended all sorts of sporting events, played on the varsity roller hockey team, made great relationships with the teachers and created countless bonds with friends. My parents still reside in Deer Park with a few of my friends as well, I love being able to call DP and DPHS my home. Anytime I visit and end up driving past DPHS, I can't help the hundreds of memories that flood my mind. Both my parents and my sister are alum of DPHS, I feel that I'm lucky in that though years apart, all 4 of us have very similiar memories.
The teachers are wonderful throughout the district. Teachers are willing to put the time and effort to help the students to get extra mile for the students. DPHS offers a wide range of class choices as well as multiple advanced courses. As a parent, I really happy with the school.
I SEE SOME PEOPLE BLAME PARENT PARTICIPATION.ALOT OF DO PARENTS WORK,YOU MAY NOT SEE THEM AT PTA;S HOWEVER PARENT PARTICIPATION STARTS .HOMIE..I CAN SAY THAT IN THE 50 YRS PLUS ,PARENTS HAVE BEEN TOTALLY ACTIVE. AS FOR THE PERSON THAT WROTE ATHLETICS GOOD BE BETTER.WELL DP HAS PUT OUT PROFESSIONAL ATHLETICS.ITS WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT THAT GOES FOR THE STUDENT AND THE PARENTS.DP ALSO HAS HAS ALOT OF STUDENTS GO TO IVORY LEAGUE SCHOOLS NOT BECAUSE OF HOW MUCH THE FAMILY HAD AND WHO THEY KNOW ,BECAUSE DP MADE IT POSS. FOR THOSE THAT WERE TRULY DESERVING OF THAT EDUCATION.DP IS A GREAT TOWN AND SCHOOLS TO GO WITH IT.ONE MORE MENTION,FOR THE STUDENT THAT SAID LOW INCOME,DO YOU HAVE A CLUE WHAT LOW INCOME IS???
The arts program in this district is amazing. Students can get involved with chorus, band, orchestra, musical theatre, fine arts, fashion, etc. The teachers are wonderful throughout the district.
I am a student attending Deer Park High School. I moved from one of the best school districts in Long Island : Half Hollow High School East . Coming from there I soon found out that there was an intense rivalry. I made lots of friends quickly. Which was a plus. But you also get judged very quickly. I'm an A+ student and in all honesty I have to say I never started having problems until I started going to this school. They offer great classes & academic activities to participate in, but they fail to keep fighting and bullying under control. Drug use is definitely average in this school. I knew people in 8th grade using weed or other substances daily. Drinking too. This school IS a good school. But this school can also be a TERRIBLE school if you're child gets influenced easily and has a hard time focusing. The bad path is very clear while becoming successful takes more effort.
