Delaware City School District Reviews

I’ve enjoyed going to DCS and it has really shaped me into the person I am today. I hear very often that I am extremely lucky to go to an inclusive school. DCS has kids from every socioeconomic class and many different cultures. Our district does an AMAZING job including kids with special needs and not making them feel less for being different. Also, I’ve been extremely lucky to participate in the music program from 4th-12th grade. The music programs at Hayes are absolutely amazing! I feel like my education was well rounded in more than just academics as well. The only thing I would change is controlling the overflow more because there is not enough parking at the high school for students and also, the hallways are SO crowded! Other than that, I’ve been proud to be a pacer!

I like that the teachers, for the most part, are kind and caring! They are willing to help and provide resources. Something I would like to see improve is the school lunch and bathrooms. The decorations around the building is torn up.
In the years I have had growing up in the Delaware City School District, I have seen a tremendous amount of effort put into allowing access to education for students. There have been expansions in elementary, middle and high schools to make room for more classes and the ever growing amount of students. As Pacers we are all expected to be well behaved and work hard. The overall environment is great for learning and achieving our goals as well as helping our peers to achieve theirs.
