Mission of Deerfield Beach High School

The mission of Deerfield Beach High School is to provide our students the best education in a safe and positive environment, conducive to their social, emotional, and academic growth.

Philosophy and Goals

We the administration, faculty & staff of Deerfield Beach High School, believe that educating students is teaching students how to learn. In providing students with thinking and learning skills, we enable them to become productive, self-sufficient, and responsible citizens. Deerfield Beach High School is fortunate to have students diverse in ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We believe that composition of our student body provides an excellent resource to teach an appreciation for differences of people within a spirit of cooperation

We believe that education must address the “whole person”, that the social, intellectual, and physical needs can not be separated. This holistic approach to education results in an integrated curriculum rich knowledge and experiences.
