My son is in his second year and has had a great experience so far.

glasgow's academic programs could be a little better. they should have different academic programs that fit each student. Some of the teachers could be a little better. also glasgow cant really function because of the lack of money they have. they need to do some type of fundrasieing or get some help. But overall it is a fair school to send your child to.

The quality of academic programs is fair. Glasgow needs to work on providing scholarship information for the students; call them down to the guidance office twice a year and discuss their goals and what they need to do to make it a reality. Glasgow sports and art program is good. The level of parent involvement is poor.More home work/class work is needed. A homework line is needed.

glasgow is a great school for the right student. Opportunities for success are plentiful, but there is a large culture of unsupported, underachieving students who could be a distraction. If your child is motivated and not easily influenced by peers, this is an excellent school. the teachers are compassionate and enthusiastic, and the administration has the right idea. there are some negatives, such as a lack of financial stability in the school district and the flight of top students to private schools in this area, but GHS has produced two national merit scholars and countless award-winning writers in the past five years. take the time to know your child before you send them to GHS, but if they are motivated to succeed, this is a great school for them.

Good faculty members. Students should be more challanged by the teacher. Classroom behaviour should be improved.

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.
