Delta High School is NOT a private school. This STEM school has students from the Kennewick, Pasco, and Richland schools enrolled. The incoming class is picked by a lotto system each year.

Posted August 29, 2012

the school has a good concept in plan; a STEM school; science, technology, engineering, mathematics are what they focus on, modeled after a a STEM school in Seattle, but the space is WAY too small and the principal makes your life miserable, class mates of mine were always transferring and i transferred to three rivers home-link and i love it there! the teachers were good when i was there, but some left and some new ones came in. btw this school is not private, it is a public school and students get in via off of a lottery drawing.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
