I was raised to beleive that Sussex Tech was the only route for me; Laurel High School was for degenerates and those who do not value their education. Unfortunately, Tech required nothing less than a B average at the time, and I was no shining student in middle school. I had not been raised in an encouraging enviroment, so I felt that my grades- truly- were that best that I could do. The staff at Laurel Senior Highschool helped my realize that I did have potential! I did not become an A student overnight, but I certainly felt pride, when I started engaging the workload. I am so very thankful for that they did for me. This girl, an AP student? No way! 2003-2007

I have a child that attends Laurel high, she has had sum issues in the past few years and Laurels teachers have been a great deal of help for and helping her get through it all. I just want to say thanks for being there for her. This school is a great. The teachers are very helpful when the students need it.

As a student I can honestly say that Mr. Ivory, the school principal has done wonders in his short time at Laurel High. He is what our high school needed. He has made many positive changes.

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.
