    "There is a mix of great teachers and a few who don't know what they are doing. Classes vary greatly as to how challenging they are and it really depends on what classes you take and who the teacher is."

    "Acceptance is average and for the most part there is not a lot of diversity. The diversity that is there is generally accepted and negative peer pressure is avoidable. Student involvement is strictly event to event and varies widely."

    "DeForest High School is the perfect size. It's not too little, but it's also not too big. Every athlege tic event has packed bleachers. Our students are all very supportive of one another. My favorite experiences in high school were at sporting events and DECA competitions. DeForest High School is unique because every teacher makes it a point to get to know every student. If I could do it all over again, I would absolutely choose this school. I was given so many great opportunities there and the knowledge I needed to succeed in the future."

    "I loved all of my teachers at DeForest High School. Every teacher took the time to get to know you, whether you were in their class or not. Teachers would say hi to other students during passing time even if they never taught them. Every teacher tries to tailor their teaching styles to what works best for that specific group of kids. The teachers are very knowledgeable and they give teaching their all. It is very clear that the teachers in the DeForest school district care about the future of each and every student."

    "Teachers are very inconsistent; a few great teachers are overshadowed by a terribly inadequate math department. The teaching methods used by the math department are extremely ineffective and do not prepare students well for AP courses or for college. Although some of the teacher are somewhat knowledgeable, overall there is a lack of education regarding how students learn best. Most teacher grade fairly with a few objective teachers who insist on making their class hard. Overall, the teachers are average for all subjects except math."
