While attending Alexis I. DuPont High School, I had a variety of experiences. While there was a lot of diversity among the students, a lot of them had behavioral issues. Another issue I noticed was that the classes began to become overcrowded, reaching upwards of 30 students. It may have changed since I graduated, but the hallways would always be congested. Second, I'll address the faculty. If there's anything I miss most about high school, it would be my teachers. Personally, I'm more artistically inclined. Several of my teachers recognized this right away and incorporated artistic projects into their curriculum! The teachers here are very good at listening to student's suggestions as well. Overall, I'd definitely recommend this high school. The student body may be eh but when it comes to getting a good quality education, this is the place to go.

I like how my school offers many programs and activities that are not always available everywhere. The teachers and administration treat me nicely and help me whenever I need them. Even though it's a small high school, my teachers, administration, and peers know almost everyone's name has a balanced relationship with the staff at Alexis I. DuPont High School. In Delaware, it's nice being known for some of our top sports such as football and track and field.
Well, based on prepping and school spirit and the number of programs I'd give it a 4-star rating including the amount of teacher I have encountered that actually helped but when it came to the sophomore year I came down with the Flu while my mother was struggling with pneumonia in a coma. By the time I returned back to school, it was the end of the marking period and my geometry teacher gave a load of work I missed expecting me to finish it by the end of the day and still gave me a low grade in that class despite my doctors note. Around this time I was struggling to keep up with the class and I was offered little to no help and worried sick about my mother since she was in a coma. For the rest of the year, I attempted to leave the class but was denied and forced to stay within the class and fail. Sometimes with admin, there can be a bias towards certain students.
