I like the fact that they offer Spanish in Kindergarten. My son is learning and picking up on it very quickly. He has above average test scores and he likes his teachers. He is excited to tell me about school. In addition I can call at anytime and speak to someone about his progress if I need to.

Just moved here and my girls are loving this school. Except for my oldest daughter she is having problems with students teasing her. But the school is wonderful and very well disciplined.

The school actually has students from K-5 now, this was the first year. Mrs. Wills is the greatest K teacher I have ever seen.

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.
