    "The students interact pretty well together. The teachers are very helpful and very supportive. The guidance office staff and office staff along with the principal and vice principal are always there for whatever it is students need. The only thing that needs changed and cracked down on some more would be the bullying and rumors between students."

    "I enjoyed going to Derry Area High school, overall the teachers were there for the students but the classes offered and clubs weren't that diverse. Although there wasn't a large diversity, there were good programs in agriculture and a tech school to go to if the students so choose. If they decide to go into the tech school, they spend 3/4 of the school day at the tech school taking courses in the field they choose(ex. mechanics, graphic design, cosmetology, etc...). There's many other things about the school that i enjoyed but i feel like this has gone on too long already but feel free to look up the school website!"

    "I couldn't have asked for a better school or district. Though it may not seem like the biggest or nicest, it is the faculty that makes all of the difference. People beyond high school never mention old experiences with teachers. I can though. The stories and characters are surreal. Everyone cares about their jobs and about how well they are teaching the students. It's hard to find that in most schools. The teachers open up your world to new experiences and opportunities that other places just cannot offer. I would never ask to grow up in a different school. Most people are happy to get out of school, but I often wish I hadn't. The only reason that I want to teach others is because of the great experiences I had in Derry Area High School and the School District as a whole."

    "Throughout my last four years in Derry Area High School I have had so much fun. All the teachers get to know you on a personal level. They all offer so much help, and will give up their time to help you. The school is all very close with each other and I always felt safe. I hope in the future Derry High School can upgrade their technology to make it more useful for the kids."

    "Just like any high school, it doesn't prepare you well for the after high school world, i.e. taxes, house/ car payments. However, they do offer a required class that is supposed to help you with this endeavor. Several agreements are in place for students to take college classes while still in high school. The athletic department suffers with the exceptions of, volleyball, wrestling and men's soccer."
