Miss.Lee's is the best. My son did ok in Kindergarten, but since moving to first grade with Miss. Lees he has improved so much with behavior, and getting his work done. Shes a wonderful, loving and positive teacher. She has great communication with parents. We love her!!!

I Really Like This School. They Are Helpful For Those Who Need More Education And Make's Sure That Everyone Is On Track. I Love The Be Kind Program To! Helping Kids Being Kind Like Josh Stevens.I Dont Get How Others Hate This School.

My three sons go to Derfelt, one will start 5th, one will start 2nd and our youngest starts Kindergarten this year. The staff have always been excellent, friendly and Mr. Mingo knows all the kids by name. My son that is going in 5th grade can't walk by a teacher without them all knowing his name. It makes me happy that they always acknowledge the kids by name. Great school.

My daughter had Ms. Hawkins for kindergarden 2013-2014 and she loved her teacher and her class SO much ! I admire and respect the way Ms . Hawkins runs her classroom. She is wonderful with the children and her teaching methods work amazingly well. My favorite thing about Ms. Hawkins is she teaches the kids how to spell words with songs, songs that spell the words out and give examples of the word. Also I love the projects that were assigned. They were a great way for the kids to express themselves and their interests in a fun creative way. Last, I loved the way the homework was assigned, it made it mandatory for parents to take time to help their children and see what subjects they are strong and weak in. I noticed that Ms. Hawkins knew everything about every individual child, which is amazing considering how many little ones she had in one class. My first parent teacher meeting with Ms Hawkins I was so happy and impressed, The principal is also very involved and great with the kids ! Love this school and the staff !!

My daughter started Derfelt January 2014. She is in the 2nd grade. Her teachers Mrs Dahlky and Mrs Fisher are awesome. My daughter speaks very highly of them. Every time i go to the school I am warmly greeted by all staff. Recently my daughter had to take off of school for 3 weeks. I was very worried about my daughters grade going down but they made sure to keep her on track. I love this school and very glad my daughter goes here.
