    "I am a student currently going through DHS and I am constantly amazed by the talented staff, strong administration, challenging classes, and impressive variety of extracurriculars and sports. Students have the opportunity to pursue almost any interest, and there's something for everyone (Student Congress, Mathletes, Cheerleading, Stage Crew, Human Rights club, Student council...) Most of the teachers are very hardworking and understanding, as is the administration. The school's only real failings are its overworked, understaffed counseling department and its somewhat old facilities."

    "I am a graduate with 3 siblings having graduated or attending DHS. The staff was involved, the sports and arts in depth. With a sibling needing accommodations, the school and its staff have been wonderfully supportive and she is currently incredibly successful due to their assistance and care. My other sibling has always been a student that wanted MORE work; she needed more challenge. She has found all the challenge she can at DHS along with expansive opportunities from the professors on a social and interactive level with programs like WYSE, honors and many others. The school has a wonderful college office, writing center and encourage kids to explore and create communities and aggregates of their own choice (like clubs and associations, like OYAD (yearbook), Deerprints (DHS newspaper) and much more), I loved my experience at DHS as an athlete and student. My 3 siblings and parents have as well."

    "If you tend to be on the conservative side, this is NOT the school for you! Our daughter graduated in '07. This is a school that prides itself in its "tolerance" yet is tolerant of anything and everything BUT conservative values. My daughter was pushed down stairs by students, harrassed and embarrassed by teachers and ostracized for her beliefs. It was four years of hell for her and us. There are MANY parents/students who have been treated this way. Don't believe us. See for yourself. Google: "Angels In America" Deerfield High School" (which was a horrible book promoted and literally forced on english students until parents spoke up) and just look at District 113s stand in the national spotlight for the recent "ban" of HPS basketball students travelling to the "anti-immigration" zone and how the district defends itself by "protecting students" when it is really promoting it's own political agenda."

    "Amazing teachers with amazing credentials and a very involved administration. Offers more clubs and extracurriculars than I ever imagined. Arts program wonderful - too many classes offered to take. Great building with all the trimings. All sports offered. Be prepared for a libral bias in students and administration - and total preparation for any college. Many students go to Ivy league colleges as well as big ten... Really happy with DHS."

    "They really follow and track the students very well to make sure nobody falls through the cracks. The vast majority of their teachers are excellent."
