Looking for Extra Help in Your Classes?

Here at Deer Lakes High School, there are various options for students to get assistance in their classes. We always encourage students and their parents/guardians to reach out to the teacher first if they are struggling in a specific class. However, we are aware that sometimes students need more support. 
Below are some options that we are aware of. (The Deer Lakes School District does not endorse any of these courses or tutors. This list is provided for informational purposes.)
