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.
