Very competitive school, amazing opportunities around every corner. The administration sometimes tends to care about the wrong things. For example, the dress code is more important than the way the teachers are teaching the students.
Overall, the school prepared me for college. College seems somewhat easier than this highschool. I was taught how to properly write a paper and learned a lot of valuable things. The school encouraged me to do better and to want to challenge myself.
Any student that is interested in standing out in Delaware or simply getting a great education should apply.
There are also many different places and ways to get involved with the school, whether that be sports, clubs, volunteering or just rooting on your fellow students. The school pride is immaculate and everyone was very grateful to go there.
The teachers genuinely cared about giving us a great education. We learned a variety of things, even though the school is STEM we almost had a liberal arts education
It’s a pretty good school, there are a few cons though. Traffic in the morning is a nightmare because charter shares a building with cab Calloway school of the arts. It’s basically two high schools and a middle school in one building. The building is kind of dirty and the temperatures are sporadic.
Along with the cons there are pros, the principal and vice principal are great. They’re very passionate about their respective jobs. They try to encourage students and unity between them.
Teachers are also passionate about their subjects, they encourage growth and positive learning traits in the students.
There are plenty of clubs for whatever you’re interested.
