The school is good overall. However parent cliques dictate student placement with best teachers. If your not involved with the school get involved otherwise your child may not end up with best.

My son went to the school for 2 years and I am really satisfied with his academic result and over all developments.

Parents with spec ed students do your homework. Delaware schools are by far the worst with limited resources and they love to dance around the issues. Words of advice document, due process and lawyer. Good luck.

School provides very limited resources to students with disabilities. Disciplinary issues are not addressed until out of hand.

I love this school, the staff and parent involvment is phenomenal! There is a lot of parent volunteers, which really shows the children how important their education is to everyone around them.

Overall, I am happy with Cedar Lane. The only occurences that I was concerned with was when I felt they did not handle discipline issues fairly or appropriately, or when there was not effective communication from the teacher. Both of which can be resolved if you are an active, involved and persistent parent. I feel that the quality of the education is excellent and I will be sending my other children to Cedar Lane.

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.
