This school is the newest in the district, and yet the front office staff is often rude, as if you're bothering them to do their jobs. The Admin is less than savory, but many staff members, and teachers are very dedicated. There are many challenges in this school overall. Their PTA never seems to take off, and has low attendance. Too much blacktop and not enough green area for recess. WE pulled our child out because of the environment. It says something when parents don't feel welcome.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Delaware used the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System (DCAS) to test students in English language arts and math in grades 3 through 10, in social studies in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The DCAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Delaware. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

There are not enough high schools in Delaware for GreatSchools to generate fair Ratings for high schools at this time.
