    "I am a student attending Deer Park High School. I moved from one of the best school districts in Long Island : Half Hollow High School East . Coming from there I soon found out that there was an intense rivalry. I made lots of friends quickly. Which was a plus. But you also get judged very quickly. I'm an A+ student and in all honesty I have to say I never started having problems until I started going to this school. They offer great classes & academic activities to participate in, but they fail to keep fighting and bullying under control. Drug use is definitely average in this school. I knew people in 8th grade using weed or other substances daily. Drinking too. This school IS a good school. But this school can also be a TERRIBLE school if you're child gets influenced easily and has a hard time focusing. The bad path is very clear while becoming successful takes more effort."

    "I graduated from DPHS back in 2007 and believe it is a great school district. I think a lot of is what you make of it, if you re willing to put the time and effort in the teachers will go the extra mile for you. I graduated in the top 20% of my class, graduated from a university with my bachelors degree in Finance in just 3 years and moved on to work at one of the leading insurance firms in the world. DPHS was my starting foundation for all of this. You can t go to a school and expect to come out very well educated without putting effort into things yourself. DPHS offers a wide range of class choices as well as multiple advanced courses."

    "I am a 1979 graduate who attended a top university and also two top tier conservatories. DP schools provided me with an excellent academic foundation, especially in science, math, music, and extracurricular activities. All of this helped me become a well-rounded and well-spoken graduate and I am always pleased to be able to say the same about my fellow graduates, many of whom I simply run into on Facebook. DP has always been a low-to-middle class blue collar town. That does not mean that a good education is hard to get. My parents were motivated to make sure I took advantage of the many diverse offerings DP schools offered. You can lead some to water but you can't make them drink. Parents, if you want your kids to succeed, you MUST be involved in their lives."
