Caravel Academy Reviews
Caravel Academy is a school that is proud of their athletics, but really they are only concerned with the popular sports. The more popular the sport, the more funding the team receives. The music program is little to nonexistent, as well as theater. The students are extremely cliquey, so if your son or daughter does not play a "popular" sport, they will most likely not fit in. Quite a few math teachers struggle with teaching their students so that the students can fully understand the content. Considering school spirit, there is none. There are teachers who even complain to the students about their issues with Caravel. The pep rallys are terrible, and the students hardly show up to sports games, plays, or musical performances.
Caravel Academy has been an absolute savior to my seven year old. We recently moved to Newark, DE and the choices were slim as to the public school system. I had found out about Caravel Academy form my neighbor who raved about the teachers and friendly staff. I quickly reached out to them and after completing and passing required tests, my daughter Kayla was accepted into the First Grade. Caravel Academy has also given me some Tuition Assistance which I am totally grateful. We are now eagerly waiting for the second grade to start. It's great to see my daughter actually excited about starting school again.
Caravel Professes to hold students to a high level of Academic Integrity, which I agree they do. However they do not hold their teachers to the same level of integrity. Apparently, after meeting with an administrator, Teachers are not required to respond to parent emails and if they do they are not accountable for anything they say in their email. A commitment made by a teacher, according to the Headmaster, is not enforceable and does not require said teacher, to actually follow through with their end of the agreement
