Calloway (Cab) School of the Arts5

Cab Calloway has been a great school for both of my children. Both of my children started in 6th grade and have grown since they have been there. They have grown academically as well as through the arts. The teachers have developed independence and confidence in them and have encouraged them to stretch themselves in both areas. I feel very lucky to have a school that I can depend on and trust my children are safe every day. The communication from the staff and administration is outstanding. I always know what is happening in the building and the opportunities out there for them. The individual teachers send e-mails regularly as well as keep the own web sites for the students up to date. I will quote the middle school band director, Dr. Cannon, and say "What a great school!"
Cab is the perfect school for the student who is motivated to learn, but also is interested in making a focus on a discipline in one of the Arts, a larger part of their middle / high school experience. My son was struggling with finding the right middle school fit for him and CAB has been the perfect choice for him and his education. It is invaluable that we have options like Cab Calloway and Charter in the greater Wilmington area. For us, it has been a very unique experience at CAB, where you can find teachers that truly want to teach and students that are truly focused on learning and getting a broader educational experience.
great school all around. Hands down to the principal and the building chief working together to appeal children from all over the state. the staff members are super friendly and the kids at cab and charter are amazing, extreemly respectfull and mature for thier age. The chief operator over there does alot to keep the building clean and safe for the children. I wouldnt even question sending my child to cab calloway or charter for middle and senior high school. I personally have seen what its like at other public schools and this one is far different and one of a kind. keep up the great work!
I have a daughter who attends this school. The academics in the school is outstanding. They have a very nice way to impart education, and it is working. My child's vocabulary has improved tremendously. The teachers are more goal oriented and do give a lot of leg room for assignments including accepting them for late evaluation , without being excessively penalizing about it. No problem about bullying or other non sense that happens in many schools. Good children very motivated to learn. They do place you in an appropriate learning group to complement your interests. No doubt that they have the best art program in the state but do not be fooled by its title as an art school. They share the same building with another great school, charter school of wilmington and they do a lot of co-ordinated programs together, including band and sports. Cab and charter compliment each other with their great programs and the students benefit from the great talent of teachers and students. Cafeteria offers wide menu including vegan and vegetarian for the palate . Admission to the school is restricted by audition to 2 art form and hence they are selective in who gets admitted.
