I love Delsea Middle School. My girls have had a great time. They have so much to offer the kids both during and after school. I haven't ever heard one complaint about the teachers, it has always been so positive. They have silent reading to start off their day, to not only settle them down, but to get them in the right frame of mind for class. And what parent doesn't love to see their kids reading a little more each day. Delsea Middle and High School are just wonderful. The focus is on the kids and the very best the can do for them. I can't thank them enough for the great start at DMS. Teachers job very well done!

It's my childs first year in this school. Last year it was a fight every night to do homework, but now, the teaching staff have somehow motivated him and he is even excited about learning. Enthusiasm is contagious, and his teachers have done a great job.

At this middle school, I was to say the least, miserable. The teachers would not help, even asked I had asked. When I had a problem with a teacher not helping me I brought this to the attention of the principal who 100% backed the teacher without even considering what I said. Overall I was unhappy with my stay their, and I would reccomend a private school or a different township when seleting a school.

Teachers and staff seem very concern for the students well being. At this school, your child is not just another student. Many times, it is the teachers who picks up on if there is a problem, trying to nip it before it becomes a larger problem. My hat goes off to Delsea middle school for caring about their children. Excellent school if you are considering moving into the district !

This is a school that involves the parents well. The staff is approachable and willing to assist you in helping your child. The academics are good, and there are opportunities for every child to become involved with other activities.

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.
