Posted February 5, 2014

My grandaughter was recently transferred to this school. So far they seem to be providing all the services she needs. She is happy to go to school and has made some progress in the 17 days she has attended this school. The teachers communicate with my daughter and they seem help her help my grandaughter. I really like this school as the school she came from Southern Delaware School of the Arts did not even follow her iep.

This school is wonderful! The speak program needed to be honored. They took my friends son who was in a school that was too restrictive for him in another school district and turned him into a honor role student. They gave him a chance when no one would. The special education program is outstanding the staff is wonderful. We miss this school so badly we love them!!!!

I won't send my child to this school. Although most of the staff seem to be trying their best with the undedicated students and their distant parents, there are too many discipline issues that get in the way of instruction.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted July 27, 2008

This school's administration does not seem concerned about children unless it is a disciplinary issue. There are no programs for exceptional K-2nd graders. Many programs for children falling behind or having trouble with classwork.

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.
