Great school, exceptional staff. They go the extra mile to make sure your children are well taught and cared for.

I am VERY happy with the staff and general appearance of the school. However, I am disappointed w/ the school boards decision about making Chinese a Special. My children have to split Computer and Library time so Chineses can be a full special. In Library they check out books and color - what happened to learning how to use a library, card catalogs and parts of a book? This is much more useful than any foriegn language! KUDOS to the staff for caring through with a smile even though the board and Dr. Kelly do not truely have the childrens best interest in mind!

Milton Elementary has proved to me as a parent that I do not need to send my child to a private school. The teachers and the principle are so involved with the children and even call the parents frequently to give updates. True parent participation also makes a for a better school. I give Milton 5 stars!

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.
