    "I'm in the International Baccalaureate Programme at DeLand High, so my teachers are qualified to teach tougher material than most. That said, the IB class is often small across the grades, thus many IB teachers also teach high-academic classes such as AP and Dual Enrollment. All of my teachers have done what they could possibly do to teach me, and my peers, everything we could know in order to prepare us not only for tests but for life. The life lessons and the fun comments we share in our class-teacher relationship is great. The boundaries and the "time for things" are always known and teachers try to work around other teachers's schedules so that students are not swamped by multiple tests on the same day. The teachers shape you from a silly ninth grader into a responsible adult in only four years. Many have had more personal relationships, that is when I felt depressed and had personal issues, my teachers were always there and supportive and knew when it was best in my interests in consult administration for guidance."

    "1 - Teachers are great. No need to be more specific. 2 - Students, besides the higher-coursed peers, are often arrogant and willfully ignorant. The will to learn and the respect for teachers, themselves and administration is often appalling. Student behavior has proudly, sadly, represented the city and the school for poor academic scores. 3 - Administration is a joke. We've a lot of rules and regulations, established by the county and the school itself, but many rules are willfully ignored. Dress code is one of them. One of the rules is super-short booty shorts should not be worn at school. I see girls all the time wearing them. Girls are not allowed to wear spaghetti-strapped clothing. I see that too. Guys just as bad: I see them with hats and tank tops. The administration changed its policy on hats just to stop having to "call" kids out. The enforcement of rules is often shady and teachers are often targeted for student behavior. Many teachers lack respect for the administrative members simply because the administration does not deserve it. The principal, I will say, has tried often to negotiate terms with teachers and is a presence in the school. He speaks with kids and teachers just as any teacher would. He's a good guy. 4 - Vandalism and Health are horrible. DeLand High School failed a health inspection three times. The only building that passed was the cafeteria, only because the chief has her crew clean the place themselves. Can't trust the custodians to do it. Can't trust the custodians to do anything right, really. Can't blame them though, not too much: they don't get paid nearly enough and are extremely over stretched as it is. Plus they sometimes do stupid things like erase a teacher's whole whiteboard when there was important information on, or touch teachers's things on their desks. I even heard of theft in some instances. 5 - DeLand High School is a school. No more, they're not "Ivy League." Teachers make this place tolerable."

    "There are a lot of good things about this school, but I would most definitely change some things about it."

    "I had a wonderful time while I attended DeLand High, it was full of spirit and had a vigorous learning environment which helped nurture me into the person I am today."
