My child just completed a year of Pre K here. She LOVED school, did a lot of good art and music projects, and did more academics than I expected, by which I was pleasantly surprised.

No real good segregation of advanced students. My child was performing tasks that were well beneath he/she, in my opinion.

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.
