In my opinion, I think the school district cares more about the sports rather than the education and the band/choir students. They should focus on the acedemics rather than the sports, and we aren't even good at them!

As a graduate of DKHS, I had a reletively decent high school experience, but I was one of the few. I was a 'smart kid' so I was able to go to an amazing college despite Delton's lack of help. If your child has a learning disability, go to another school. My younger sister currently attends DKMS and recieves liitle help for her learning disability. There are a few decent teachers (Ms. Dinda, Mr. Grimes, and Mr. Farmand to name a few), but for the most part the teaching staff does the bare minimum. As a college student training to be a teacher, I didn't realize how horrible the majority of the teachers were until I began my teacher ed courses. The sex education is a joke (which is evident with the soaring pregnancy rate), but sex ed starts at home.

Delton is a school that if your child is average or above (as far as grades) they can get through just fine, but if your child has trouble or struggles do to a learning disability there isn't a lot of help given to try to diagnosis the problem and get the child on the right track. I would like to see this changed so that parents can feel confident that the school is doing all they can to help your child get the best education possible.

Delton High School is a wonderful school. The children are very blessed to have wonderful teachers who work very hard to prepare our children for their future. As in any school district it takes a whole community.....family, teacher, administrators, and friends. It is a collaborative effort to raise our children today the Delton community works together for our children. I give this school a rating of 5.

My children and I are all graduates of Delton Kellogg High School. I have very much appreciated raising my family in a small, caring community. There are many opportunities for students to take outside classes through local community colleges, the Math & Science Center and the Tech Center. The school offers a good, basic curriculum that prepares its students for college.

Delton is an excellent school to attend. The one thing that needs to be better is parent involvment, and what school out there can say they don't need that. People gripe about Delton, but expect the system to raise the children for them, Sorry people, it just don't work like that. Delton might not have the new buildings, but last I knew, it wasn't the building teaching the kids, its the teachers. Delton has good teachers for the most part. Yes there are a couple that have fallen through the cracks, but I blame the teachers union for that. But anyway, I am giving Delton 5 stars because it deserves every one of them.

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Michigan used the Michigan Educational Assessment Program (MEAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math, reading and writing; in grades 5 and 8 in science; and in grades 6 and 9 in social studies. Currently, GreatSchools' ratings reflect 2013 MEAP results; ratings will be updated after 2014 Michigan Merit Examination (MME) results are released. The MEAP is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MEAP test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Michigan used the Michigan Merit Examination (MME) to assess students in grade 11 in reading, writing, math, science and social studies. The MME is a standards-based test, which measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Michigan. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the Michigan State Board of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the MME test. In addition, they have recalculated past years' results using these new standards for proficiency, making the above year-over-year results comparable.

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.
