Cape Henlopen School District is great. The students are friendly. I’ve definitely experienced some mean students although. The teachers are nice although they might not be the best at providing knowledge to us students. Things that could be better about the Cape Henlopen School District would definitely be the School policies. The school policies make us students feel like we’re in a dictatorship. There are some policies that are ridiculous and there are some consequences that strip us of our education. If a students is noticed wearing ripped jeans or a tank top we are either sent home or to In School Suspension which keeps us from learning over a small hole in our pants that’s not inappropriate or what not. Anyways that’s another story to tell. Thank you for reading and looking over my survey!
The Cape Henlopen School District receives a lot of funding from the state, which helps their facilities stay pristine. They are in the process of building new elementary schools, and are always improving themselves to be more eco-friendly. An example includes recycling in every classroom, and the high school's Green Club that picks up the recycling each week before classes. The high school also has automatic sensor lights that shut off when no one has been in a room or hallway for a period of time. There is a lot of community involvement, and parents work with school sports to raise funds. Their sports teams are ranked as some of the best in the state, specifically girls and boys lacrosse. Their middle school field hockey teams are great as well. Overall, the time I spent in this district was great and I was fortunate to have more opportunities going here than I would have had in an adjacent district. The teachers are passionate, and the school counselors are wonderfully helpful.
