John Deere is a unique school as its beauty and a combination of new and old blend so well. I found the teachers to be very friendly overall and while there is a larger diverse population at the school the kids seem to love it there. The auditorium is one of the best in the nation and the cafeteria offers a wonderful and balanced menu for all including those in the assisted program for any low income. Its location says volumes for many from the lovliest to the wonderfully diverse neighborhoods in the city. I found with the right discipline and a combination of similar rules for all classes they do better. The kids respond to kindness and challenge and have one of the best Lights on Learning programs around as well as science teachers that have taken the classes to national science fairs. The teachers are very dedicated as is the administration..... There is a warmth around the school as well between students and teachers. The kids can be very very caring as can the teachers.
