Delta High School Ratings & Reviews

March 03, 2018 Submitted by a student
This school is a nightmare. They have shiny brochures and an ugly real life. Their idea of perfection is a bunch of cookie cutter kids with no creativity. Forget any after school activities, sports, drama, art or even a library. They have like 3 clubs. They offer no personal career counseling, no personal college advice, just generic one size fits all. You will have no choice about the classes you take, and you will not be able to voice any issues, frustrations or concerns to any adult at the school. You will hate it, do not go!

First of all, this is a public school - not private. It calls itself a STEM school, but academics are lax and there are no class choices. Also, extracurricular activities are limited. Principal does horrible job with discipline. School has problem with drugs, fights, bullying.

I’m going to be honest: Delta High School is not much of a STEM school. Firstly, their academics are not STEM rigorous — it essentially feels like you are going to a regular high school. Secondly, their technology is not the quality you would expect from a STEM school. The laptops are old and in poor condition with awful battery life. There have been times when you have to go without a laptop (despite needing one for the class period) because they are all either broken or not charged. At a traditional high school, you have dances, sports, bands, theater, and many clubs to choose from. You also have a wide range of electives and classes. At Delta, there is not any of those fun options (except for a small number of clubs) and everybody takes the same classes. While you are allowed to be a part of a sports team or band at your home high school despite going to Delta, this is quite inconvenient if you and your parents have busy schedules since you have to go back and forth. You will also have to go to the dances at your home high school since it is not unheard of for Delta’s socials to be cancelled due to low turnout. An issue with Delta is the lack of separation between standard, Honors, and AP classes. As a result, students of varying academic abilities are in the same classrooms. Students with less academic experience fall behind, and students with academic excellence are held back. This causes frustration within the classrooms, causing the students to act out. This is not a positive, efficient learning environment.One thing that astounds me is the lack of respect students have for each other and for faculty. Drama, foul language, and even bullying are not too uncommon. Since students who require special assistance share the same classrooms as the rest of the student body, there are sometimes rude, insensitive remarks directed towards them. From my experience, the administration does not have an effective policy in place for dealing with disciplinary issues. As a result, there are few repercussions for their poor behavior, allowing the cycle to continue.With only several hundred students total, you would expect the class sizes to be small. They are not — there is about 30 kids per classroom. Delta, in theory, is an excellent idea. The program has promise, but in its current state I would highly recommend going to a traditional school instead.

"Delta High School is a STEM school, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) yet, the school hardly feels different compared to an actual school, sure our schedule is in blocks (A block, B block, etc) and those blocks do change in order each day, however that isn't the point. Even our grading system, which instead of A's and B's is actually based on a, what I like to call the ""Counting"" system, we are graded on numbers 0-4, a 4 being a 100% or A+, and a 3 being proficient at a 75% grade. The school provides alright food at lunch and like a lot of high schools we have our fair share of questionable teachers and staff. But as a student of the school I've gotten some insight into whether or not I can recommend this school, that's a definite no. Over the past years that I've attended there is virtually no anti-bullying or harassment system in place at this school that I have seen, in the entirety that Delta has come to being, only 1 student that I know of has EVER been fully expelled. If your being harassed, the only thing you can do is go down to the office, discuss your complaint, and receive the same simple answer of, ""We're aware of the issue and we're doing what we can to improve it."" That statement means absolutely nothing to me and I have not seen any improvement in various disrupters, some teachers will shut it down if there are bullying going on, but there are also those that only make it worse and even cause arguments with those students.Overall, the academic system and potential for students at this school is average in my opinion, I do not feel like I have very great advantages here compared to other high schools and I'm sure being swayed by the whole social experience that I've had here. There is less of a presence of ""cliques"" however there is still the presence of students with disruptive tendencies who wouldn't survive at their home high school.Do I recommend this school in terms of grabbing an education? Sure.But do I recommend this school if your looking to have a great experience with the students and teaching environment? Depending on the blocks that you share with certain people, probably not."

Ignore all the negative reviews: they don't know anything. Sure some of the teachers are a pain but that's what happens at almost every single school. One review from 2012 said the building was too small but in fact we have since moved to a brand new much more spacious building in Pasco. It is a good school for anyone interested in pursuing a career in a STEM field but as someone not interested in a STEM career I personally like that it's not a big school and that I at least know everyone in my class. The staff who aren't lazy or rude due genuinely care about the students so don't let a few bad (and some rotten) apples put you off. They keep on employing better and better staff after the bad ones give up and find jobs elsewhere. It's a good school! Even if you're not sure about Delta just apply for the lottery and if you're accepted then you can make a decision.
