    My son is a new student at Deep River Elementary. I have been extremely impressed with our experience with both the teaching faculty and the administration here. They truly are student centered.

    I am looking to move back to Sanford N.C. and looking for information for this school. Test scores and just over all reviews. Thank you

    This school puts way too much emphasis on their dress code. This is a public school not a private school. I would like to see more concern with academics and less on the clothes.

    My son is in the first grade at Deep River Elem. In my opinion he attends one of the best elem. schools in Lee Co. He has enjoyed all of his teachers the librarians and the principal Mr. Gary Moore. I am pleased with the progress he has made in the two years he has been a student at Deep River. I know that teachers do not always get the recognition that they truly deserve but to all of you at Deep River you are appreciated. Thanks for all the work you do to help our children.
