I recently graduated from Woodbridge, and I have to say, i appreciate the teachers there. They seemd to really care about teaching. Woodbridge is not perfect, the uniform policy is stupid, but for a public school, I feel the teachers made the difference! I was part of the football team and it was a great experience. I will miss my friends and those teachers who spent extra time helping me on my studies.

I attended Woodbridge for 9 years. I then transfered to Sussex Technical High School and it is a world of a difference. I am ashamed to say that i ever went to woodbridge, the academics there are absolutly horrible. When I transfered to Sussex Tech, I was so far behind, which is how all Woodbridge students are. I feel as though the doors to Woodbridge need to be closed until they learn how to properly educate thier students.

This school is really bad. They are making us students wear uniforms. During the winter they plan to cut back on the heat and they are telling us to make sure that we wear warm clothing. The weird thing about this is that they just bought the old police department in bridgeville for a dollor. Which I am for they are building an ag building. All of this is going to cost a whole lot of money. Why cant they just wait untill the summer to do this and use that money to heat the school.

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.
