This is one interesting/exciting place to be. Students of dance can be seen performing in their English classes-a dance response to a piece of literature. Other students might paint murals on the walls for a Spanish teacher as a extension of their cultural learning. The high school science teachers are so good that their students often win awards in the Science Olympiads and the middle school math program is one of the best in DE. Who would expect such things from an Arts High School? The drama productions are first class, as are the instrumental programs, visual arts, and voice. Communication majors learn things most students don't learn until college. If is a fun place with great A.P. courses, and creativity showing up all over. The Math/Science Charter School upstairs offers some advanced classes that Cab doesn't have, but Cabbies can take coursework there too. The older building needs work however.
I wrote the previous recommendation saying the school was great.Well we are on our second year in middle school and I feel totally opposite. My son is being left to fall through the cracks. We received no warning that he was failing math or struggling. He says the only teacher who cares is the science teacher. He is having a hard time staying organized because the classes are spread so far apart, he spends most of the time rushing from one class to another. My opinion is the middle school suffers because they share space and time with Cab Calloway high school. The teachers are overwhelmed because they are required to teach a high school class. If I could afford to put him somewhere else I would pull him out immediately. This is a student who had honors in elementary school.
I love this school so much. Being a 6th grader this year and the youngest in the whole school is hard i am not going to lie. But the way everything works is amazing. I'll call my friend and tell her what happeden in school and she will tell me her day was average and boring when mine was sanguine and exciting (wall word) i love everyone there and everyone is super nice. I plan on staying at cab and being a cabbie untill i graduate high school! i love you annie and lizzie!
After coming from a private school, my mind was so set as to how school was: everyone had their own cliques and I would be the odd one out. As a seventh grader here, these two years have been the best of my life. The teachers are amazing and they really are focused on getting you that 'A.' After recommending this school to my elementary school friends, three people have joined me in this journey at Cab. This school is so different because the kids that attend here WANT to be here. They enjoy their art and can finally expand and excel in what they do. This school has not only helped me grow Vocal skills, but as an individual. My mind is finally open to new things! You are allowed to be creative! Everyone loves it! Even the teachers, they admire what these kids have to offer.I found my place.
My three teenagers have all attended Cab Calloway. It is a remarkable school that I would highly recommended to everyone, especially those with children with talents, whether it be writing, drawing or any talent in which your child can continue to grow with and bloosom in. The teaching staff are some of the best in our district and the office staff are always very helpful and informative.
I feel that this school represents exactly what a good school should be. This school not only has great teachers but is a good environment for the artistically gifted child. When you enter this school you get a feeling of warmth and closeness amongst the studnets. You see them happy and at their best when you enter any classroom whether it be an art class or an academic class. The teachers always go the extra mile to help the students and to ensure they understand the material being taught. This school is all this and score highest in the State in Reading and English on their DSTP's. So that shows that the students and the teachers hard work is paying off.
I'm a Cab Calloway Alumni, one of the 8 students to go through grades 6-12 first. This school is remarkable. There is such a great follow ship and a high sense of school sprit. Being a 'Cabbie' is something that is envied by other students, and the education that I received has helped me though out my college days. Sometimes when I have a problem with a certain class, I can call my old teachers at Cab Calloway, and they are more than happy to help me through it, even though I graduated 2 years ago. In short, this school is definitely a school to consider.
My child has so 'blossomed' at Cab. She is a very smart girl, yet has been one of those kids who didn't always apply herself as she could have. Since entering Cab, she really cares about her grades, her teachers opinions of her efforts, and her work habits. THis will be her Junior year, and she is taking mostly honors and advanced placement course. I'm so proud of her, and grateful to have Cab in her life.
