The teachers are wonderful! The schools commitment to inspiring life-long learners make this the best school in the country!
We are a small school that makes every decision based on the needs of our kids. We have resisted the pull to increase class sizes in order to bring in more revenue. Every child is valued as an individual because we know all of our kids as individuals.
Francine Delany New School for Children works hard for the children in their care and brings them into the world of being connected to the community. This helps they become members of the world they live in . I have seen many Francine Delany New School for Children become active members not just on the side lines.
F. Delany school provides a supportive learning environment for all students.
Francine Delany is the best school because it is the total package! The teachers, parents and children of Francine Delany create a unique nurturing environment for our children. Besides rigorous academic courses, the philosophy of the school teaches its students that they are part of a greater whole and teach them how to actively participate in the world around them while honoring their individuality.
Francine Delany New School for Children is a wholly unique and nurturing environment, teaching children to be lifelong learners with a passion for social justice. It is a teacher-run school as well.
F Delany has great parent teacher involvement and good class size. The school is run by the teachers, not detached administrators, which is a refreshing change in the NC school system. My son is really excited about reading and we do verbal addition quizzes all the time. As a family we are really excited and pleased with F. Delany New School.
Francine Delany New School is a fabulous place for students, staff and families.
Caring community, creative forward thinking teachers. Inspiring families!
wonderful community school - involved teachers and parents - bright kids
F Delany is a wonderful school. Great student teacher ratio, inivative teaching methods, and all of the children know each other throughout all of the grade levels. These children are privilaged to have such caring and inspirational teachers and administrators. I've never seen a learning atmosphere like this. I feel so blessed that my children have access to this environment. I hope that the school will expand to include grades 9-12. Niconda Briscoe
The relationship the teachers have with each of the children; the comraderie among the children; the teaching of tolerance, community and giving back; along with an excellent curriculum and teaching staff
I am the luckiest teacher in the world. I get to work with great children and their families. Francine Delany is a school where we take care of each other. I just love our staff and feel very blessed to be a part of this amazing community.
I love that my seven year old son comes home every day saying that 'school was great!' The teachers are excellent: enthusiastic, committed to ongoing professional development, and take a sincere interest in every single child. The school is small, and makes sacrifices to keep class size small, while not compromising whatsoever on quality. They produce students who go on to be leaders in highschool and have a reputation for being more mature students than average in their high school grade. They take personal interest in the safety and health of their students: feeding those who came hungry and making sure a teacher is on the school bus with the kids every morning and afternoon! They manage to create a wonderful educational experience for our children on a shoestring budget, and have fun doing is (though it has to be tiring!) Thank you.
I love FDNSC because the class sizes are small, teachers are caring, enthusiastic about their students, and are constantly educating themselves on how best to reach all of their learners, and the school is all about community.
F Delany New School is small, innovative, diverse, academically rigorous for all students and is run by teachers, parents and community members.
Everyday I drop off my children at school and I know that they are being nurtured and taught by conscious teachers who have so much to offer the children from their own experience and education. Teachers and staff are devoted to each child and the greater school community. My children are learning academically, about themselves and how be a member of a community.
Delany is a teacher run school for a good reason. Nowhere in NC will you find a school with a more qualified teaching staff. Over 2/3 of the teachers have adanced degrees and over 1/3 have National Board Certification. Teachers are life long learners and are committed to assuring all children are active participants in a learning community. Delany's test scores have always been good, yet teachers don't teach to the test. The instructional focus is creating readers, writers, thinkers and problem solvers. Good test scores are the result of strong teachers using their professional knowledge to provide optimal learning experiences for each child. Don't judge a book by its cover. The campus is modular classrooms. Take the time to look inside each building. Observe children reading real books, publishing writing, engaged and challenged through problem centered math, researching topics of interest and creating projects invovling social action. You'll be impressed!
