The teachers are warm, loving and strong educators. The reading levels are above standards and continue to grow. The school is full of color and very welcoming. I am honored to be a parent of a Carrcroft student!

I think that overall the school is great however I feel that my child has not been challenged enough. She needs to have more homework to prepare her for 4th grade. I feel that she is going to get overwhelmed with the work in the next school.

My sons love Carrcroft. The environment is safe, friendly, and conducive to learning. The teachers are great.

We're going into our third year and second child at Carrcroft and it has been a great experience. Teachers are very involved with the parents who want to be involved. They help the students who are falling behind and challenge the students who show excellence. They want the children to succeed and do everything they can to make this happen. Teaching respect for oneself and others is an obvious lesson at Carrcroft as well. The students always say hello to you, they hold doors, and are very polite. The music program is phenomenal! (Immpossible to sum up in less than 150 words.) Suffice it to say my son is very excited about any chance to sing and it's all due to Mr. Peters. Any issues with bullies or discipline I know will be resolved swiftly and fairly. Its a place I feel safe and secure about sending my children.

Two of my daughters attend Carrcroft, I attended when I was a child as well, I cannot say enough good things about this school, all teachers and staff are extremely caring and attentive, they care about where your child is going in the future academically. If you are having a problem with anything it is addressed immediately and rectified in a sufficient manner.

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.
