    Our children have been in Deibler for four years now and we have always been and are very happy with the teachers and the entire school administration. It is an excellent school where everyone cares and provides continues support to children

    Sending our children to this school was the worst mistake of our lives. Teacher quality is mixed. Some of the teachers are excellent whereas others don't care AT ALL about the kids. If your child is perceived as someone who needs any help with their learning they are immediately labeled and pushed out of the class. Why? As to not lower Deibler's PSSA scores. Forget the learning needs of the child - all focus is on the all power test. Also bullying is a huge issue here with no support from teachers or the principal. We took our kids out immediately after spending one year there. If you are looking to buy a home in this school district please please be careful. We are back in the Central Bucks School District and could not be more thankful - yes the homes are more expensive and we'll be driving the same old cars for many years it is worth it all to have our children out of a school where one was negatively labeled and the other was continually bullied with no support from teachers or the principal. Ironically at their new school the "negatively labeled" child has been tested and is in the gifted program and the child that was bullied has made many new friends.

    Caring staff that provide safe environment for kids to thrive. Excellent music program. Academically not terribly rigorous.

    The PTO is so supportive for the children's education. The staff provides a caring and secure environment for the students. It is a such a family atmosphere.

    I've had a fairly positive experence with this school. Three of my children have attended this school at some point and as far as public schools go this one is pretty good. They offer many programs to help kids who are struggling.
