I have three Graduates from Deer Valley High School and One Junior. It seems that every time I go into the school and am addressed by the Receptionist I feel as if I have been sent back to 9th grade. There is NO service skills they speak to an adult like they are a child. I am absolutely discussed every time I leave that building. I can be picking up early or signing in it never changes always leave there feeling degraded.

The teachers are excellent. The students are well behaved and respectful. The administrators are hard working and caring. The staff are friendly and wonderfully kind.

Deer Valley high school is a wonderful school with great teachers and a diversity of students. The school is extremely family oriented as many of the current teachers went to Deer Valley themselves. AP and duel credit programs are offered as a head start to achieving college credits and a variety of clubs and artistic classes are offered. I'm a sophomore this year.

We are thinking of buying a house here and would like to know if there are gates or metal detectors at the entrance of the schools?

I have spent a total of two years so far at this school, and I don't regret it one bit. Teachers give so much of their spare time to make sure their students are understanding the lessons and nearly all of them help with a sport or sponsor a club. Fellow students treat each other nicely, and there are never any fights. In comparison to the other schools in the district, this school has no drug problems. Except all of my peers are slackers, so the only way to get a class that is guaranteed to be focused for learning is an honors class. Nothing against the teachers, though. I can't wait to come back as a junior next year.

I have to say that when it comes to children with disabilities they are not very helpful or knowledgeable unless you go in with a great team who knows the in an outs of what your child or childern are intitled to or not intitled to you are pretty much thrown under the bus literally...so i got myself a great IEP team and had my childern get what they deserve.

I have 3 kids that are either going or have graduated from this school, all with a wide range of abilities... Special Ed., Reg. Ed and Advance. I truly feel confident about this school and their main focus, teaching our kids. I have a sports child and one, well not so much. The sports kept my daughter focused on her grades and the teachers helped out wonderfully. My son is having a different take in high school and has gotten into a little trouble. Both issues were resolved in a manner appropriate to the issue and with true concern from the staff. While not all teachers are the best (one spanish teacher just needs to retire), the majority of the teachers are there is to aid in my childs success. I have been very happy with DVHS from all aspects.

This school has some amazing teachers and some of the worst teachers I have ever seen. As in most high schools athletics rule the campus. The staff can be rude at times and not very helpful. The quality of education depends on the teacher. I would think twice about sending your kids to this school.

Deer Valley High School should be a model to all High Schools in the valley. Academics are strong, extra activities are amazing and very well organized. Dicipline is conducted in a positve way that will help our teens become more productive and educated. The overall experience has been nothing but wonderful for my daughter. Please visit this school and feel the incredibly awesome atmosphere.

In the next school year (09-10) I am going to be attending DVHS as a Junior, and thus far I am extremely happy with the experience I've had there. In the area that I live, students either go to Mountain Ridge HS or to Deer Valley, due to zoning. I know many people who chose to go to Ridge over DV, because 'it's newer, prettier, richer' etc. Sure DV is an older campus (it opened in 1980), and so it shows a bit of wear and tear, and yes, the DV tax base is not the white collared workers that surround Ridge, but Deer Valley has phenomonal teachers, administration, counsellors and programs, that are all given equal credence. We have Honors and AP programs that are taught by highly qualified teachers, dual-enrollment courses through Rio Solado, and, frankly, our regular classes aren't half bad either. I highly reccomend DV.

Deer Valley High is an excellent school. They have a strong academic program, great teachers, and excellent leadership in Principal Dobbs.

We have found Deer Valley to be a great school in many ways. The key is to be actively involved as a student, and stay in communication as a parent. The basic classes (non honors, non AP) tend to lack challenge - which may leave college bound kids a bit unprepared.

This is a large school and deals with the normal issues a large school is faced with. I am happy with the quality of the education and the staff. As with any school some teachers are better than others. Parental involvement is always the key! Any issues that I have had have always been resolved to my satisfaction.
