This school is absolutely horrid! My son has been constantly bullied and harrassed and the administration has done nothing but try to turn it around on him in an attempt to make it appear that he is provoking the incidents of bullying. First of all, they won't do anything about bullying unless the child comes into the office and writes a written statement of bullying. Second, when the child reports the bullying, they take the bully's word that the victim did something to provoke them! It is absolutely sickening!!!!! Also, there are very few teachers here who actually show that they care about the students. God forbid that your kid struggles with a subject, they will not get the help that they need because there are no programs to help them.

I've sent two children to this school and have refused to send the third due to the poor performance of this 'teaching' institution. If you have any questions, just read all the posts made by their students. Few can write a correct sentence. If you actually want your child to have an education, I recommend you look else where.

School last year was alot better. The quality of teachers has gone down with the removal of techers. I miss gettin extra help from Mrs. Holmes, Mrs. Herbst, Mr. Anderson, Ms. Thompson, and all of the others who left or were replaced because of budget cuts. I wish volusia county gave more to its schools. At a middle school in Sandfrod the have pre-law studies, pre i.b. and about 3-5 languages taught.

My child enjoys going to most of her classes and is going to 8th grade in August. The teachers are dedicated and work hard. The schools principal is okay.

My son has had difficulties with this school from day one. The bulling and cursing at this school is horrible. He has come home from school more then once upset about the way he or his friends have been treated. When I go to the school to report the problem I get the same old generic answer 'we'll look into it'. We will not allow my son to go back next year.

Deland Middle has an outstanding after school program and very caring teachers. I have found that they are very willing to help when asked. I am confident that my student is getting a quality education there. The principal is also helpful and active in daily concerns.

Academically I have found there is not much concern for helping a struggling student until it is well into the marking period. Almost too late. Unless one signs up the year before, and even then, chances are that the child doesnt get their first or 2nd choice. It's disappointing. Parents can be involved they say, but they only care if it's a kid who causes trouble.

The teachers at Deland Middle School give there children 110% of them-selves. The principal has a tendancy not to stand behind his teachers when they have a suggestion or comment that would improve the learning. Cut the teachers some slack, and allow them to teach the way they think .
