This is an awful school. If I could give it zero stars I would. When a 5th grade comes out of this school with a 1st or ,at best, 2nd grade education, there is obviously a problem. Please re-evaluate your staff and make sure the current teachers are TEACHING the students. Children NEED to know how to read and write. If you cannot do these things you will not get very far in life. These children are our future. Please get them some help in this school!

I have 2 children here for over 6yrs & now they do not want them attending next yr due to behavior problems. When a child is choiced, they have that right, but this school and my child has gone down hill since 2004. The students and teachers are overwhelmed. Teacher/student ratio is about 22-28 with no para's in any class! This alone leaves room for disruption. Not until a request for a improvement plan to accomodate my child needs was requested did I receive a letter of withdrawal. That tells me a lot about the way things are done here & that they do not have the childrens best interest at heart.

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.
