Deretchin Elementary School Reviews
If you want your child to go to a school that only cares about your child doing well on the TAKS test, then this is the school for you. Deritchen is focused on the “Exemplary School” banner to hang on the wall so they teach the test, the whole test, and nothing but the test. The TAKS tests may be important to the teachers and staff when it comes to their yearly wage increase but a school that doesn’t seem to care about teaching children how to think, how to reason, and how to imagine, has their priorities mixed up. If you just want your kids to get on a bus in the morning and not have to think about them until they get home in the afternoon, then this is the school for you because believe me, they don’t want any input from the parents on what is best for the child. The Administration and Staff at the school are unprofessional and even appear to be untrained in their duties. They really should review the school district’s policies when dealing with issues.
