This school takes in a mix of students from varied backgrounds and abilities. Your child will receive a well rounded learning experience in a supportive enviroment. The communication between school and parents is good. There are many activities and sports offered.

Redding has been doing more with less for years. They could use this money.

The staff are supportive of parents and students. Overall, our child has had a good experience at the school. I would recommend it to other parents.

My daughter moved to this school in her seventh grade year. I was extremely impressed with the teachers, staff and especially the principal. They all work well together and truly have the students best interest at heart. They worked hard to help my daughter 'find her place' in the school. The staff know her by name, and they seem to know all the other students as well. The teachers all go above and beyond for the welfare of their students. I could not ask for better. The principal is outstanding. Safety is not an issue at this school. I am looking forward to sending my younger children there as well. Sports intramural could be improved but great music and arts programs. Lots of clubs and activities. Great parent involvement.

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.
