My foster grandchildren attend Delaware and I have nothing but praise for the way this school is run. The teachers are exeptional, the classroom are small enough that the children get the attention they need and my children actually don't want to miss a day! Bravo To the whole crew!

My son attended this school from Kindergarden thru 2nd. We have finally transferred him to a school where he actually feels like someone cares. There is absolutely no extra help at this school if your student is a non-standard, non-LD child. I highly recommend choosing another shcool. My son is in 3rd grade and reading at a 1st grade level. Because no one wanted to take the extra time to help him. His 1st grade year he spent in the kindergarden room have someone read to him and drawing pictures. This happened without any parents consent or knowledge.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the Missouri Assessment Program (MAP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in math and communication arts, and in grades 5 and 8 in science. The MAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Missouri. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
