Love this school teachers are great just watch out for the subs they can be a bit cranky but other than that the school is amazing football is also fun hope this helps
I'm a seventh grade girl and I go to Derby Middle school. All my teachers are great and I love my classes. Sports such as football, track, volleyball, basketball, tennis and cheer are available throughout the year. There is a drama club called Bulldoggers that meets several times a week. The facilities are quite old. The air conditioning/heating sometimes does not work and the lockers are a pain but overall I really like the school.
