As parents, we are very happy with the education our son is receiving at Maple Lane Elementary. The Principal and Assistant Principal's involvement with the children is noteworthy.

Both of my children attend Maple Lane and we couldn't be happier. We actually pulled our oldest out of private school and placed her here as we felt like it was home from the moment we toured. Both girls were admitted to Brandywine's gifted program as well but we couldn't leave the family feeling at Maple Lane. When we have questions we are listened to, our suggestions and ideas are considered and we couldn't be more pleased with how involved, we as parents, are allowed to be. The teachers really care and have gone above and beyond to answer questions regarding curriculum or challenging our girls. On top of it all the balanced calendar is a wonderful way for the girls to make friends in other grades. I really can't say enough good things. I am proud to send my girls here.

Worst school ever. My child comes home every night crying because of the other kids pick on her and make fun of her. I talked to the school and they blamed my child. I also know three other parents who took their children out of this school because of bullying problem and the school did nothing.

Maple Lane is an amazing school! I have two children there and I must say that I have not one complaint about this establishment. Every teacher has been amazing and dedicated to their students. Maple Lane makes you feel like you're a part of their family and when my children leave to go to middle school it is going to be a sad bitter sweet day. That school will truly be missed!

Maple Lane is a wonderful school. The school is led by a smart, caring and effective principal. The school uses positive reinforcement and a reward system that motivates the children to excel both academically and as a person. The school is very clean and has a surprisingly attractive interior. The classrooms are clean, comfortable and inviting to the students. The PTA is led by some very committed parents, who keep all PTA activities on track and progressing.

Great school, excellent teachers, principal that cares and is involved in everyday life of the school. I was worried first about the balanced calendar, but now we like it, my child loves the intersessions.

Maple Lane is a very well rounded academic institution. My daughter loves it there and her teachers so far have been excellent to work with from a parents perspective. The school environment is conducive to learning and has the children's well being in mind in all they do. As a parent, I am very happy to have my child attend.

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.
