My school is outstanding in the way that the teachers and staff try their hardest to educate the future of our society. The only problem I have is that some policies are too strict and learning isn't as rigorous as I need. I have been accepted into the IB Program this year that they have been running for a few years now and am very excited for my future in learning, hopefully it will be more challenging.

I would say overall this experience we have had as a parent of a freshman at Sussex Central has been great. Coming from another state in the fifth grade his teachers worked with him on the new curriculum and encouraged a health eductional relationship. I like the team spirit of the teachers and look forward too four more successful years for my child and even more for my grandchildren soon entering the district.

Sussex Cemtral is a excellent school. I went there when I was younger and now my child goes there. This is her first year and they just moved in there new building. The teaching is great and the teachers are very helpful and they offer a lot of time to help the students one on one.

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.
