Principal is pleasant, but will always back-up her staff even when their methods are suspect.

Brandywood Elementary School is an exceptional school with an outstanding principal and knowledgeable and effective teachers. The school is an asset to the community as children are taught well and molded into well-rounded young people. Mrs. Wilkie has done a remarkable job leading the school!!

My son had a great year at Brandywood. The school had a highly qualified curriculum. Our family moved here from Philadelphia and my son attended the third grade at Brandywood. He had homework on a regular basis. We are going to miss the Brandywood family as my son progresses to 4th grade.

This is school is great my son has achieved a lot in the first grade. I wish all schools and teachers cared this much!

My older daughter attended Brandywood and I was very happy with it. Unfortunately, there's now a new principal who doesn't have the experience or leadership that the school needs, so I'm not so sure my younger daughter will get the same quality education. I'm paying close attention to how Mrs. Wilke ends up impacting the school.

I really love Brandywood. I have been with the school for the last 4 years and will be there for the next 2 years and wish I had another child to put in there. I really feel the school is a great asset to the comunity and my daughters really feel comfortable being there and love the principal. She is a very pleasant and caring authority figure for this age group. I could not have found a better school. Brandywood Rocks!

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.
