    The program of studies of the Hershey High School
    is planned to meet the needs of the youth of the Derry Township School District. A major task of the school is to accommodate learners with divergent needs, goals, capabilities and interests. To this end, an effort is made to nurture individual skills and to satisfy individual needs.
    It is also the responsibility of the school to furnish opportunities for students to participate in cultural activities that may otherwise not be available to them. Extracurricular and enrichment programs are offered to satisfy this aspect.

  • Safe2Say Something Reporting System Now Available

    All schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, including DTSD, have adopted use of the “Safe2Say Something” anonymous tip line as a means of improving campus safety and improving school climate. The tip line is operated and monitored 24/7 by the Office of the Attorney General where tips are reviewed, classified, and forwarded to the appropriate school district. Tips that are found to contain information that may indicate a "life safety" issue are immediately forwarded to the appropriate county emergency dispatch center.

  • January is National School Board Recognition Month

    January is National School Board Recognition Month - a great time to recognize our locally elected community members who selflessly volunteer their time, talents and energy in support of high-quality public education here in Derry Township. The time spent in bi-weekly board meetings represents just a small fraction of the hours DTSD school board members dedicate to their posts. Board members contribute hundreds of hours each year crafting policies, building fiscally responsible budgets, carefully listening to constituent input, along with serving on committees & as delegates to community organizations.
