Delair has been a welcome to our family. With two children already attending and another soon to be a part of the school I am proud to say that Delair has been a wonderful experience. The teachers are very caring and the staff takes the time to get to know each child and family. The educational experience had been excellent too. We are happy to be a part of Delair.

My daughter went through this school from K to 4, and in the 2nd grade, her teacher, without saying the word, called my daughter "stupid" because she was behind in her studies. Turns out, she has ADHD and requires assistance. I made sure that teacher knew exactly what I thought of her. As for the rest of her years, there was only more and more trouble with the teachers, even the so called Special Ed teachers. I am so glad she is out of the Pennsauken District and in a private school. She has totally surpassed my expectations in her new school.

Delair is a great school that is kept under the radar. Four out of five of my children have gone to Delair so far. I still have one there and one in pre-school. Delair makes you feel welcome and it feels like home. The principle is amazing with the involvement that he has with the school, students, and the parents. He makes you feel comfortable with where your child is. The teachers that I have worked with have been great/amazing. They truly care about your children as if they were their own. The staff-secretaries, guidance, nurse...thye are without a doubt some of the most caring and wonderful people I have ever met.

Delair has some of the most dedicated teachers I have ever met. I will have my third child attending there in the fall.

Delair School is one of Pennsauken's best kept secrets. It's a great school with great teachers that care about the children.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

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.
