I also want to say a postive force in this school is dr greaves ! she is amazing to me. She goes above and beyond her 8-5 job requirements. And with a great positive attitude to set it all off. There are many nights at least 3 outta 5 weekdays that she is at the school or some meeting related to the boards of the district till 6,7,8,pm wow and thank you she is truley passionate about changing this school but needs our help as parents. I wish parents would care more and get more accountable in their childs schooling the school needs alot of help from the parents more than anything ! thank you christy for all that you have been to our family!

The teachers had a genuine interest in trying to see the students succeed, but were not motivating the children to learn why they were studying what it was they were studying. It was emphasized when 2nd and 3rd grade field trips involved going to The Dirt Museum as the kids deemed it. Which was the Museum of Antiquities in Wilmington,DE I believe. For what; we still are not clear on. It was disturbing what sites the Computer Lab teacher was allowing them to go on considering violent games were on one which was disallowed later in the '07 year. All in all a fair school. With a combination of parental involvement and the schools basic curriculum a child can do better than average. But it would be imperative the parents were involved, for the school was not going to fill the gap.

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.
