Appo is a wonderful school. My granddaughter just graduated this month. all thru high school she had wonderful teachers that were there to help whenever she needed it, all she had to do was email them and they got back to her right away. She was always coming home with a story that happened in class that made learning fun.

Appo is a very excellent school and as a freshman i enjoyed my first year, all of my teachers were excellent and I did an amazing job at this school! i had great scored on the state testing. The sports organizations are great and so are the clubs. Our sports fields are AMAZING and I always look forward to going onto the fields! This school is just as good as a top rated private school. APPO JAGS RULE!!!!!

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.
