They don't even deserve 1 star. They should of never put middle school kids with elem, the kids at this school are out of control, the principal is a joke, she cares about the wrong things,is afraid of the teens, she said so herself. Her reponse when told they where at the corner fighting and cursing, was call the cops the last time I confronted them they came after me, that's someone I want in charge of a school full of teens, NOT. Also they care more about if a uniform has a stripe out of place , or PSSA's ( because they cont to fail them ) then daily learning. They no longer teach cursive writing my 3rd grader can not read anything written in cursive, what a disgrace. They also don't know how to handle kids who have any special behavior issues, they need to replace the principal and turn this school around. There is some really good teachers who care a about the kids and know what they are doing, but when the school isn't run right they can only do so much. I went to this school some 40 yrs ago and would pull my kids out right now if I could sell my house. This district is the reason the house don't sell. The only positive is if you are lucky enough to get a good teacher.

I wish there was a negative star rating. This school is out of control. The Principal is a naive fool who thinks so much of herself and doesn't see how bad of a job she is doing. The new Vice Principal has some good ideas but is restricted by the person above her. They both have no idea how to deal with the students who go there. I have sat down with these two to discuss a problem with a student who has been hitting my daughter for 4 years in a row. My daughter finally got upset enough to defend herself to this boy and hit him back once and they punished her for it. Meanwhile the teacher who saw everything transpire did nothing to stop it. The teacher didn't even write it up until she received an email from my wife.

We just pulled our daughter out of this school, too many 2 legged animals and bully drama. This school is absolutely HORRIBLE!! If it weren't for our previous landlords adult daughter coming into a situation and need her mothers house we certainly never would have moved to this area let alone transferring our daughter to this school.Our daughter was a straight A advanced math honor roll student at her previous school, she lost interest in just about anything school and it bacame about getting through the day thanks to this schools environment. The staff at this school needs to get with reality and face the truths about what goes on there instead of this "If you're not ever in a bullying situation, you're abnormal." nonsense that we had to hear come out of our daughters mouth because that's what her teacher said in class that day. We send our daughter to school to be a flourishing student, NOT to be a statistic!!!

This school is one of the worst run that I have ever come across. The children learn nothing from going here. They stop teaching spelling after 5th grade? If it wasnt for the no child left behind law 1/2 this school would be left behind. They don't know how to keep kids in line. The only ones that get in trouble are for petty things. They watch so many movies, this school will be calling itself a movie theater soon. My child took an online tutoring insted of the one at the school. He learned more in the two months online then this entire year of this schools teaching. If you can send your children somewhere else, do it. were looking to leave this horrible school district ASAP

My child used to go to this school. I pulled them out due to well below standard pssa test scores, class size, it says on here 15 or 16 to 1 ratio. I find that quite surprising considering my childs class size was 28 when they were transfered to a much better school. They are now in a school with 14 to 1.

My child just started the 4th grade at Delcroft. He's been there since K. It's changed a bit since. For the better I must say. Parents, although not enough, are starting to get involved, the principle & vice P are going on their 2nd yr.They've seemed to be very interested and concerned for the children. The teachers are getting the training they need to ensure that the chidren learn what they are supposed to.The class sizes are too big though. There have been changes in the curriculum. The teachers that I've come across so far are great. My son's first grade teacher came to one of his karate belt ceremonies. Which was nice. If more parents just got involved in not only the school but in their children's lives in regards to school, discipline and homework...Delcroft can possibly be one the top of list of schools in Deleware County.

I have a child going into second grade. In my two years in that school, I have seen a school that once the child leaves the classroom, the care for that child leaves with them. And for a school district that is the highest funded district in Delaware County, a parent expect better results on testing and the like. It is no wonder why people with school aged children are moving out of the area in massive numbers. And with the way things are going, I only see that number growing.

I went to this school and now my child goes to this school. There is a huge difference between then and now. The teachers really seem to care about the school but we have had 3 principals in one year and they do nothing about the out of control middle school kids. It seems like not enough parents care about their childrens education. On the way to walking my son to school we have to see these kids smoking, cursing, fighting ect. and when the school is notified about it nothing is done. They should have left the middle school at Ashland.

I believe that Delcroft elementary needs to have those parents who are willing to participate in their child/children education involved.

Delcroft just changed as the the other elementary schools did for 1-8 and it changed the schools dramatically. Delcroft has not had a consistent principal this year at all and they do not know how to deal with the children with behavioral problems. There are problems with this district overall, they are trying to correct them but the children that are in the school/district now are not going to benefit from these changes overall. Sad to say, the school/district needs to reach out to the community and the families for their help in resolving these issues.

We have been a part of the Delcroft 'family' for 12 years now, with our youngest starting kindergarten this year. The teachers care a lot about the success of the children. There are clubs for them to join, like cooking, intramural sports, & drama. We also have a band & chorus, newpaper, safety patrol and more. The district has an annual musical for grades 5-12. Test scores don't always show the true results of the teaching. Our children score very high on the PSSA's, but with the number of families that move in & out, the scores seem to be lower than they should be. We have a very active Home & School Association that provides needed equipment and funds to the school, while hosting fun family nights at the school. Parents are welcome to volunteer and visit often. SEDELCO has a bad rep, but Delcroft is a great school!

The teachers work as hard as they can with these kids but the resources and the parental support is just not there. The lower grades are great but the middle school kids are out of control and have no respect for the adults in charge.
