My concern regarding Stubbs is that students are not well prepared to move to the next grade level. When behavior is not under control, students that are trying to do the right thing are the ones that suffer. This school has the potential for great things, however, they need to get better control of supporting teachers and students in the process.

Please i beg you PLEASE PLEASE do not send your child to this school!! The First semester my kids were attending here my daughter got BUILLIED!!! The So called teacher never did anything about it!! it's was to the point where she was scared to attend school! I steped in of course and got assure that it's not going to happen again but it did!! The teachers are useless... always on the phone not giving the attention to the kids as they need it. My son still don't understand that Maths and is not reading like he suppose too! Some of the kids carry on like they are grown up! VERY SAD!!! Presently looking for a good elementary and middle school for them

Please Please Please do not send your child here. They do not have qualified teachers teaching our children. The Principal and all the administrators are useless. My child didntdo anything but color. Principal admitted that there are problems but said she could not do anything to fix them now.....WOW. I was blown away. Choice your child to another school for a quality education. I would not even give this school 1 star.

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.
