I agree with the other reviews about this school, I would not recomend this school what so ever, untill a lot of changes are made. The issues with the teachers bullying students has been pushed aside again and again, year after year, however if you contact the school board and have these issues addressed it will help, and the more of you that do so will be helpful for not only yourself but for next years kids as well. The school board takes these issues very seriously.

I am currently a student @ DelandweldonhighSchool. middle school I got bulliedto the point I wanted to die, went to principal for help. Said just miscommunication&bulling got worse. Highschool camegot bullied againexcept this time I didn't go for help cause ofmiddle school triedto run from it now have to repeat second semester cause wontallow me to make for crdits. says you in student handbook course schedall jacked up& half grade back school runned bypopularity,wealthhow well ur parentsthreatenschoolteachersstill "learning" what learned 1 semester @TJ in Decatur dontteach students in way info can be processed, some teachers don't teach n the teacher loses only ur paper 85% of the time.>half the class saw u turn it inno way that any1 go from this high school straight into college&do well. Middle schools more advanced than highschool. I want to get into medicine, but if I don't get to another school that goal is down the drain. At the moment my Mother is not able to move, have me enrolled on an online school, or spend extra to have me in a school out of the district. That is why I might have to file for emancipation because of all the educational and finacilal barriers that I face.

This school is too small and does not offer enough academically. It's too 'political' and children of outspoken parents suffer the consequences. Because of this, we are leaving the school district. Think twice before moving to Deland or Weldon.

Due to its small size, DeLand-Weldon offers outstanding one-on-one attention between it's students and teachers. Academically, their students are performing average or higher compared to other surrounding schools. Morally, this school is greater than any other in the area. DeLand-Weldon offers everything a student needs course wise. They offer all core subjects as well as other minor subjects. If DeLand-Weldon does not offer a sport, they most likely co-op the sport with a surrounding school. Their co-ops include: Football, Baseball, Softball, Golf, and Cross Country. Over all, this is an outstanding school district and community. Everyone in both communities are vary proud of their student's accomplishments.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
