My 3 kids have attended many schools in several different states. DCS has been fantastic! 2 of my kids are autistic and the special ed. department has been the best out of any school I have had them in. They really work with you to make sure your child's IEP is the best it can be. My boys have made more progress in one year at DCS than have in the last 5 years of being on IEPs at other schools.
I have 3 grandchildren attending DCS and they love to go to school each day ~ they are being challenged academically and having fun at the same time. The teachers, staff & administration are wonderful, caring people who really take an interest in the children in their care.
Deerfield Community School not only promotes education but gives back to the community. During crisis the school steps forward to offer shelter, support and comfort. The school is a great place to send students to learn, work and visit. As a parent of two students and employee for 9 years, I can't imagine a better environment for my children or myself to work in.
DCS is a great school! The community is what makes it so special. The students are friendly and conscientious; the parents are supportive; the staff is hard-working and caring. It is just a nice place to be.
I have two children at DCS. One of my children is at the top of the class, couldn't ask for more academically. The other was struggling. The staff noticed within the first week of school and got the extra help needed. Both are doing wonderful now. Like any school, there are some teachers who are better than others but most teachers I've encountered have a lot to give and true pride and feelings for the kids. Deerfield is a loving community consisting mainly of parents and teachers alike who really do care. If more extracurricular activities are needed than that parent should suggest some. If anyone can say anything about Deerfield, it is that complaints are heard and measures taken. The student who's being bullied should go to their guidance counselor. I saw No Bullying posters in every hallway. No that's not enough but your not being ignored and forgotten.
