Incredible teachers make this school a warm, loving, and exceptional school!! I have 2 children there now and couldn't be happier. The teachers truly care about the students and the administration is welcoming and approachable to parents. Wonderful school!

This school is terrible and definitely not a 10. My children have been to different schools and I have never had an experience like the one I've had with Deretchin. My child takes the test (benchmarks/Staar) and always scores above average on everything, yet barely seems to pass the class. Homework grades ...  Read more

We have been in the school district for eight years. The Woodlands schools are pretty good as far as test scores and where ranking academics are concerned. Deretchin is the worst elementary school if you have kids with any learning disability including, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, or just minor issues such ...  Read more

I have been very impressed by the teachers at Deretchin. I have 3 children there, and the improvements I have seen in them after coming from another distict have been astonishing.

My child has completed kindergarten and first grade at Deretchin. As a parent, I have had only positive experiences with this school. The teachers we have had, the front office staff, nurse, principals and other staff members have made our time there exceptional. My child is thriving at Deretchin and ...  Read more

My daughter only attended the 6th grade here and maybe coming from Katy school district I was a bit harsh, but I did not care for this elementary And had several teachers quit during her year here so I don't know if the principal is the best or not...

This school is rated a 10 by great schools only due to their high test scores. High test scores often come at a great price to the children. My child had a difficult time dealing with all the rigidity and excessive homework and testing for early elementary school. My child became unhappy here because ...  Read more
