Moved to the area after growing up in the Brandywine School District. My eldest son has attended Mote his entire school life and is now in 4th grade and my other son is in the Pre -K program. The school is amazing and all of the staff is great. The newest principal is not the most pleasant man and pales in comparison to his predecessor but I suppose he is doing his job or he would have been fired by now. I have never had any issues with teachers or other staff and my children absolutely love going to school! Excellent school by my standards.

We moved from Maryland to Delaware and we are in the district. The office staff took 2 weeks to get my child enrolled. It was so bad that the Maryland school had to send a threatening letter stating that they are denying my child access to an education. The front office staff are incompetent and degrading and rude. My child has been there for two months now. The teacher is extremely un-professional and sends rude notes home almost daily. My child has never had such a hard time in school with a teacher but this teacher is not capable of education my child properly. My child has always received high marks but now is constantly getting low marks at this school. My child comes home saying the teacher just yells all day. If I had any other viable option, my child would not attend this school.

The moment I walked into Mote for a Choice Open House, I felt welcome. Academically, the teachers are always looking for ways to supplement the children's education. My son is in the first grade, therefore I am not aware of all the activites available, but he does participate in the Chess Club, which he absolutely loves. Parents in Mote are always willing to step up to do what is needed to make Mote the best school possible.

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.
