Our daughter is turning 6 this month and in her second year at Dephi. She loves school, her teachers and classmates. The school has supported her love of learning and to be a highly intentional and motivated learner. The teachers and administrators at Delphi have created a highly effective learning environment and community; when you walk into the school you see students enthusiastically engaged in learning both individually and in cooperation with others. Students treat each other with appreciation and respect. One of the greatest assets of this school is the diversity of the student body. One of the most amazing aspects of this school is that young people learn at their own pace and they have the opportunity to reinforce the depth of their understanding through coaching or tutoring others.

Delphi is a great school. The teachers really love what they do, and it shows in thier ability to teach the students. Also the students learn to really love learning. They can't get enough reading, writing and math!

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.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

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.
