I completed a practicum at this school. The teachers and rest of the staff were excellent and trying to do their best in teaching the type of students they are given. I couldn't help feeling like I was in a third world country somewhere in Latin America while I was there. I also felt a sense that the school was a little overcrowded...

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.
