    This school has been giving me nothing but problems. I hate this school! They claim to be "supportive" but the guidance counselor is never in his office and TEACHERS NEVER REPLY TO YOUR EMAILS. WORST SCHOOL... Don't send your child here. I am an active student here and I am very disappointed in this school. I repeatedly have to call the superintendent for help. EEWWWWW

    This school is terrible! I had two kids attend school here for their freshman year they both had to be homeschooled their Sophmore year & luckily we have moved away from that district for their Junior. Terrible teachers (except the cross country coach he's amazing and cares. My daughter got bullied from the Cheer squad for being the only "white girl" which was awful because she's an amazing gymnast and loved cheer prior to that. Admin was horrible too always whining in the office. I don't recommend this school to anyone!

    My eldest son attends this Deerfield Beach High School....unfortunately. He went into this school gifted and essentially labeled as brilliant now his weighted GPA is <1.0. Granted he chose to be a "normal" kid his freshman year (meaning he did not want to participate in the IB program). I hear nothing but horror stories about this school!!! The teachers and staff are lacking to say the least. The level of academic motivation is extremely minimal and it seems to me the teachers do not care. I refused to make the same mistake twice and I placed my next son into a different school. It will be worth driving him daily just knowing he will not be in this school.

    I went to this school for a short amount of time but I didn't have the best experience in this school. I came from New York to a Florida school district. It was tough. These teachers don't care. They let the kids do whatever they want. I had a problem with a teacher. I have over heard her once talking about me behind my back to the class. I have tried to report her but the school took her side. They dont really help there students.

    It's a pretty darn good school ! People will get a good education if they pick challenging classes and show their interest in learning. Honestly teachers only slack off when students disregard their efforts of the teacher trying to teach them. Attend this school and you WILL get a great education and you WILL get into a great college..I did ( Also the Butler scholarship is a great bonus to the students attending DBHS. I had an amzing four years at this school.

    Dude I attend this school and it's not all that good. Teachers slack off all the time and play favorites all the time. And don't get me started on securtiy. Seriously they do not do their job. If you want to breeze through high school come here but don't expect to learn much.

    The I.B. program offers great education to prepare a child for college. I have one son graduated I.B. and did great in college and two more children currently doing well in the program to prepare for college in the next few years. The butler scholarship is a great bonus for the school. Deerfield I.B. guidance I.B. teachers and the program is one of the best in the Florida.

    Deerfield Beach High offers an incredible array of programs suitable for all level of students. It has just become a Total Magnet High School where students can explore 'majors' through 22 career Pathways. Career counseling is of utmost importance at Deerfield exposing students to both college-based and technical-based careers. This allows students (and parents) to become acquainted with many high-paying careers that do not necessarily require a college education. Students are taught about finances and the realities of what they need to know once they graduate. The opportunities are boundless at Deerfield. Sports Academics and special programs abound. Deerfield is unique in that it offers a scholarship to every graduate regardless of whether they choose to go to College or a Certificated Trade school. The teachers are excellent and they devote much time to each student's individual needs. Deerfield is a super High School.

    My problem is they don't seem to care. My daughter has some problems and they are just letting her fall through the cracks. And I let them know about this when I enrolled her.

    Some of our teachers do not care about the students. Their record keeping on attendance is inaccurate. They do not care about solving problems just making their numbers look good which by the way doesn't look good still.
