    "The educational opportunities are great and we love this school! There is something for everyone! Every sport or club you could imagine, approachable teachers, some longer classes that combine two subjects, etc. The reviewer that was upset about their "conservative values" did not mention that there is a large Jewish and Eastern European presence here so intolerance cannot be tolerated, sorry. That being said, The parents have not moved beyond petty one upmanship and sorority/fraternity clique behavior so I dont see how the students will. The cliques are downright abusive to some students. My daughter is smart enough to know that her college future is the important thing and this school is going to be her best bet to be prepared for that. She has a strong social conscience and thinks about real issues so the Barbie thing gets on her nerves. A girl told her she was welcome to hang out with their group because she is pretty. Yeah..."

    "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."
