I am a retired master teacher with 25 years of service. I am now a grandmother of two children that attend Delisie. I do like what I see in this" A "rated school. Curriculum choices, instruction strategies and behavior guidelines seem fair and beneficial for the children. BUT ...have these great teachers and administrators forgotten their other comittment besides learning. I'm talking about the children that need their soul or spirit uplifted . Remember teacher you may not realize what you do to their hearts. You maybe the only one to show them someone cares, whether this child is dirty, hungry, lonely, or troubled. You do make a difference. MAKE IT POSIYIVE. Stop worrying so much about the test and pay attention to what you do to your students. I hope my little 1st grader never says again My teacher Hates me.

This place sure has changed. The school uses the light change system for behavior. If only it was used for just behavior. Students as young as first grade are given red lights for leaving their homework at home. Students are given opportunities to use the restroom daily. If they require an unscheduled trip, they must change their 'light' and lose recess. It has turned into a 'concentration camp'. Most students say that they don't have any fun at school. Yes, students are there to learn. But, learning should be fun! In response to an earlier poster, I've heard about the pressure of the state test. It is common practice that for an entire month, the curriculum is put aside and they focus on test preparation. Also, the fundamentals aren't being mastered. Upper graders still counting on fingers. The principal is difficult to talk to!

I agree with the last poster. For the most part, the teachers are great. The students are challenged to do well. But, there is too much emphasis on the state test. As long as you don't have to deal with any of the administration then you'll love this school.

I have 4 children. 2 are at Delise and 1 is at Pass Middle, and 1 still at home. My children have loved this school so much it has been hard for us to move away ( we were suppose to move 2 years ago). We love the teachers, staff, and support we get from you when our lives get crazy and when it's not. My kids rate you as 5 star, but as parents we rate you as The Star.

I have had 2 Children inrolled at Delise for the past 6 years starting with P-K to 5th grade. I have only good things to say about this school. We love the Teachers, Principal, Office Staff, and others. The Location could be better but, that's my fault. We live out of district and have to pay tuition. My kids love this school and make very good grades and very good friends. I think we have to much home work at times but, that's because I have not been in school for 25 years my self and it stresses me out not them. I give Delisle my full support and Would like to Thank everyone there for all there help in educating my kids.

This is one of the best schools that I have ever had the opportunity to be involved in. The staff is excellant. The principal is warm and welcomes everyone and every comment. The new lead teacher this year is an welcome asset to this school. I have dropped in unexpectedly and never been turned away.

I feel the only thing missing is the extracirricular activities for the students.
