We had problems with teachers and the principal retuning e-mails. When my child had trouble in math we found the teacher was willing to complain to us but not willing to listen or respond to us when we talked to her. We asked another of my childs teachers to not give her candy but was ignored. It also seemed that the teachers taught the DCAS test and put a great deal of pressure on students to do very well instead of trying their best. I admit, the school was overcrowded. The district is building a new school to relive this problem. After the superior experience that we had with our child's elementry school, this school was a serious disappointment.

This school is wonderful! We moved here from Louisiana and of course our child was a little behind the other students, but he caught up with the help of his teachers. The sixth grade offers extra help after school for the students who need it and that was a big help to us. Extracurricular activities are great and the classes go on excellent field trips. The teachers keep the parents updated on the student's progress either through e-mail, phone, or through conferences.

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.
