Christiana High School 1

I graduated from this school after four truly miserable years. Most of the teachers are there to simply collect a paycheck, and care little for the students they were hired to teach. But then the students are so disruptive and unruly that the place feels more like a juvenile detention center than high school. Looking back, I can say that the worst day of my life was when my parents enrolled me there.

The school is a very inadequate learning environment for students who want to learn. Very few teachers are able to control their students; resulting in unruly classrooms with lenient at best rules. The ending announcements have to preface not to do drugs in the bathroom or not to make bad choices resulting in the students downfall. There are few consequences for one's actions and many other students have realized this and merely take the slap on the wrist and keep doing the thing that got them "punished". Gang violence happens in the background often ending in fights around one through three fights weekly depending on the moods of the children participating. Worst of all many students are not proficient in math and or English, along with bad test scores and a low graduation rate over four years and a dropout rate nearly triple the national average its hard to say that this school should be anything you might want to send your kid to. Get out if you can; if not good-luck kiddo.

Few of my classes even give out homework and if they do it is dispatched with haste within class or at lunch.

I am incredibly impressed with the great things that are happening at Christiana High School. Students are engaged and involved in amazing activities. The school has a feeling of community now that is apparent the minute you walk in the door. Christiana recently won the DIAA Sportsmanship Award and that says it all-- this is a school that has strong, positive values, where students are accepted and can be themselves, and where adults take an interest in their students' success. I see only great things on the horizon for Christiana High School in the future.

This school consistenly fails to achieve state benchmarks and they have consistently lost students to charter/private schools to the point they are close to losing federal funding. My neice was transferred to a charter school this year where she thrived & received better education and attention from the teachers. Now the state board of education has closed the charter school & require students to go back to public schools (which will increase their attendence so federal funding is not threatened). I can't understand why CHS remains open when they have far more problems than charter schools.
