I think this is an excellent school , teachers are really helpful and make learning fun, you can ask teachers anything about how your kids are doing and if there is any problems teachers are glad to help, my daughter graduated from 8th grade this year (2013) and I think is a really good school ( I will recommend this school to any parent)

The other (2) two reviews are not up to date so I would probably think that AI Dupont Middle School was a better school back then. I am a parent that knows the importance of education so I try to be as flexible as possible when it comes to my children. I do not find that the Administration includes the parents when situations come up. They wait until a matter has escalated before they obtain parent involvement and fail to hand out warnings, as well. This school is more reactive than proactive. Many people believe that the name "Dupont" makes a difference but that is so untrue. The bottom line is, "I would not recommend sending your children at AI Dupont Middle School"! Let me also add that I am also an Administrator at another school district so I am well aware of the dynamics when it comes to a single school culture.

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.
