This is school is simply amazing!!! I love the way the teachers treat the students. The teachers are great with communicating via email which is always a big help for busy individuals. The teachers make learning fun and exciting. My child does not like missing school for anything. I can easily say job well done.

This is a fantastic school that offers a great start to education by offering full day kindergarten where the students learn to read, write, problem solve, have physical education twice a week, art and music weekly, and are introduced to foreign language through music class. The school is VERY organized with friendly staff and wonderful parent child school functions.

The teachers at Mark DeLay are incredible! The curriculum is second to none! I am a teacher at another school and am extremely impressed with the programs that are offered at Mark DeLay.

Mark DeLay is such a remarkable school. The teachers are very caring and responsive to the individual needs of their students. The art and music programs are also excellent. My daughter loves going to school everyday.

I have never seen a school with such warmth, concern and care for the children. It's a great relief to know that when I drop off my daughter she is in such good hands!!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
