  • The primary goal of the 9th Grade Academy is to increase our students’ achievement level by helping them realize they CAN and WILL succeed.

    The 9th Grade Academy has been set up to help students obtain knowledge in their pursuit of a bright future. Our Academy provides guidance on helping students set their short and long-term goals, stresses the importance of school, and provides positive feedback to our students and staff. This will lay the groundwork for success. Frequent recognition of students and staff, in and out of the classroom, is a vital part of improving student achievement.

    The vision of the 9th Grade Academy is to share in the joys and challenges students face everyday at Deerfield Beach High School. We look forward to working with all the students. We are optimistic that the time we spend together will enable students to enjoy their high school experience, and an experience students will remember for a lifetime!
