Deer Park grade school is wonderful. The staff is friendly, professional. My daughter has an amazing teacher and the school offers more leaning programs than the former school my daughter attended. So happy that we transferred her to Deer Park. The children are well behaved, show manners and respect for each other. My daughter has made many friends since we transferred her. Her grades have improved wonderfully and her self esteem has returned that she loves going to school everyday. It is so refreshing to have parents that will wave and smile at you when they see you. This is one of the best schools in our area and I am very happy to make the decision to transfer her to a school that offers so much more than her previous school.

This is a wonderful school. The classes may be small, but that is what makes this school. Test scores prove this school has an excellent education program. The best part is the environment for your kids - they are shown that people really care about them and that they are very important. Great school - Great kids. They also have a preschool program and a teacher who has all the qualifications one loves in a teacher. The program is $125.00 a month but it is well worth it and the price is very competitive for area private pay preschool programs.

As a former student and now a parent of children at Deer Park, I am greatly pleased with the level of academics at Deer Park! The ratio of students and teachers is a great plus. The teachers care about the students and make sure that each one receives the level of education that he/she needs. It is like having a private school with no tuition. Deer Park has a nice athletic program; however, due to the low number of students, we do not have an organized band program, or other extra classes like art. The involvement of parents at Deer Park is exceptional! They are always willing to help. Overall, I think Deer Park is a wonderful school and will continue to be. I would recommend it to all who have the opportunity to send your children there.
