We have 3 girls, and although we are a military family that have seen our fair share of schools, we have always done everything to have our girls in middle and high school here in Derby, Ks. This is one of the best schools in the nation, hands down. Starting with the 6th grade center, helping children adjust to middle school. The middle school only has 7th and 8th graders, and allows children to grow with peers closer to their own age and interests. The high school 9th , 10th, 11th and 12th, has excellent programs everything from ROTC, to weight-trainning. It promotes health, education, and family/student involvement. They also offer multiple fashion classes, airbrusing, clay, woodworking, broadcasting, forensic, mech drafting, and the list goes on. Panter pride runs deep here, and for anyone thinking about school systems in kansas. This is the best choice to make!!!
