My Children attend Shortlidge and I must say that I am pleased. We have to work together as a team,,, The school, parents and children to be succesful. I am very involved and if I ever have a question or problem I can go to the right person and see results. So far no complaints from my children or I.

My daughter and I both do not like the class that she was put in. The kids have no discipline and the teacher is limited in her ability to control them. There is no question that my daughter will not be returning to this school next year.

A bit unorganized. Children learn a lot at home with large homework assignments rather than in class. Discipline issues in classroom setting makes it difficult to get through lesson.

My children went to Shortlidge Academy for an a number of years. I rate this school as a ok school. because children that need the most help are some what left behind. when there are after school event it is very unorganized. even though this year performance was good.

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.
