My child has been a student at POCS for 3 years now and he is doing well. The student to teacher ratio is not as big as in other high schools. Each students get one-on-one treatment, so that individual needs are met.

Our son has ADHD and was doing so bad at his last school. This year his lowest grade is a B- and in english class (his very worst class) he has an A. The teachers really work with the kids and you can track daily online grades and assignments. Our som has always done exceptionally well in math amd has lopved math til last year whne he was at campus community where he got straight C's and all of a sudden hated math. We found this really down heartening and a bit confused since he scored greater than 99% of the kids his grade in the math DSTP. The teachers there didnt seam to care and you couldn't get anything resolved. At positive Outcomes he loves all his classes and is again excited about math. All the teacher you can email or call and get a resonce quiclky.

I love this school. My son has finally found a place where he wants to do to school. The teachers bring life to the subjects. My son has a hard time picking a favorite teacher. And the rest of the staff is extremely supportive. I have never been to a school before this one that actually call you to say 'Your son is doing very well in class and I just wanted to thank you.'

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.
