Delmar has supplied excellent support for our daughter in regards to her learning disabilities. Whether it is making sure her needs are being met in day to day instruction or accommodations for testing. She has had an inclusion teacher with her classes since she entered in 5th grade and everyone of them has been wonderful. They keep communication open in regards to her grades and an difficulty she may be having. The school has helped with getting her appropriate testing to determine where she needs the most help in school. Delmar has been fantastic with her education and assisting with her needs! !
I agree that Delmar puts more focus on athletics than academics. Frequently both of my children come home with no clue on how to complete homework or what is needed for projects because it was not gone over on class first. The teachers strive to do thier best, but with crowded classrooms, it is a struggle for them to reach all of thier students. My main concerns with the school is that they have an anti-bullying policy instituted in their school handbook and do not follow it. The Dean of Students does not take the job seriously and does nothing to protect the students at the school. Unfortunately it is not just the Dean of Students, I would go as far to say that the majority of the administration care more for state numbers than the students. What should be a safe school is no longer safe for our students. This saddens me as I understand Delmar was once an excellent school.
Very dissatisfied at substitutes interjected in middle of the year who do not know the subject matter nor proper teaching/grading methods. Also surprised at hearing that some teachers treat students in a degrading manor at times. But I don't think that this is the only place it happens nor without some cause. But still I would think there would be refrain on part of the teachers. They are setting an example. In fairness to the school, it does have many great and very qualified teachers who definitely uphold the best standards and do their best to convey excellence to all. Visits to the school have been pleasant and all but one or two teachers have been available and interested in giving feedback about their class.
