Posted November 13, 2010

I was a substitute teacher at all the Seaford Elementary Schools school , but not for very long. I wasn't fond of the behavior by most of the students in this district and the attitudes by some of the teachers. When I subbed, I dreaded this school the most. I live in the Seaford School District and after subbing here I decided to put my son in a private school when it was time for him to go off to school.


Posted April 28, 2006

Good school all in all, but the enrichment programs could be better. The school needs ti improve its writing curriculum. My son is now in Middle School and the teacher there said he has many kids coming from FDE (and Seaford Elementary schools in general) that are failing his writing class. Other than that this school is very good, my son loved it there.

This is now a k-5 school with an outstanding staff. Nothing but pure dedication to the students of the Seaford School district

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.
