I sent my children to Delmae for quite a few years. My daughter always struggled with her grades and my son always had behavior problems in class. He was seated seperately from the rest of his class and always yelled at by teachers and staff. We moved out of state to a new school. My daughter is doing great and loves it. My son was diagnosed with adhd and doing great. I do not feel if we would have stayed at Delmae that he would have been diagnosed and his future not so bright. The teachers always blamed me for his behavior.

I have a little girl in 3rd grade now, every year she loves her teachers. I feel they are really wonderful also. They will personal take time out of their day to call you and let you know how your child is doing in school. That means a lot to a parent. My son also went to school there, he is now in the 8th grade ,but the teacher he remembers the most is at Delmae(Mrs. Scandrol). I also went to Delmae,and the graduation ceremony was one of my greatest childhood memories. My child which attends now wakes up excited about going to school. They really knew what they were doing when they made Delmae

Delmae is a great school. The teachers care about their students they teach on what the class needs help on most. This school was a red carpet school for 07-08.

I feel that Delmae is a great school for any and every child to attend. The teachers are dedicated and willing to see that you child succeed and strives for the best. They want to see your child go above and beyond and is also very open when it comes to your childs education.

Delmae is a wonderful school. My daughter is in K and is reading very well. The AR program begins in K, so the kids get used to the AR tests. My 3rd gr son is also reading above grade level. His math class is very hands on and 'real world' with lots of emphasis on higher thinking types of word problems and not just computation. I also like how art, science, music, PE, writing lab and computer lab are rotated. It is so wonderful to have science lab activities to bring science to life rather than just studying science out of a text book. My kids studied everything from plants to robotics in the science lab. The teachers are very caring and truly want to see the students succeed. The principal is very welcoming and parental involvement is encouraged. It is very easy to contact the teachers by phone or email.
