As a former student of l.E.Dieruff, I was inadequately prepared for college. The education was subaverage, due to the lack of administrative interest, teacher burnout, and the overall quality of the student body. I would never send my child to any school in the asd!

Although there is potential in Dieruff, it has gone down hill with the loss of academies and does not hold strong academic standards. The staff is wonderful and caring but is obviously loosing faith in the deminishing prospects at the high school.

this school is not academically challenging and you will not leave prepared for college.

The principal is nonexistent. The school administration is narrow minded.

The academic programs have come along way, but still do not measue to other schools. There are many extracurricular activities, however, the school budget does not allow these programs to become competitive. Parent involvement is turning around, but still low.
