20 Parent Reviews for Deer Crossing Elementary School

I feel compelled to respond to the review written on July 30th. It's obvious this parent is completely out of touch with the school itself. The school itself does not do any fundraising. Fundraising is only done by the PTA and the funds raised by the PTA are used to pay for school wide assemblies, ...  Read more

Nice building. I wish it was full of people who cared about teaching. teachers wear sweat pants on Teacher Parent conference day. Teachers don't care and spend more time on fund raising. The principal is just the worst. It's like dealing with a spoiled brat. You can't win here folks.,

Deer Crossing is a very caring and professional environment in my opinion. The staff are very warm and helpful.

This is a great school if your child is a typical learner. For children who might need a little extra help, but don't fall into the special ed category, it's mediocre. "extra help" is often given by parent volunteers, which is better than nothing, but doesn't quite cut it. I was also shocked to see how ...  Read more

Very rude staff. The front office is as customer friendly as the Obamacare website. I would go private or home school if you are in this district. Or sell your house and move. It's that bad.

Much room for improvement. D.C. public schools could teach this location a thing or two. This would explain home schooling's rise in Frederick county to be the highest per capita in the state of Maryland.

This school is not a place to send your child. The literally "teach the test" rather than educating the children. The leadership is lacking at this institution. If you want to put your child's imagination to sleep you have come to the right place. Frederick county has charter schools and many other options ...  Read more

Our teacher this year allowed my child to fall behind and forced all the classwork that was not completed on us. School did not take our concerns seriously. Deer Crossing is a lot like the MVA when it comes to customer service.
