Delmar school is a good school if you have a student that is all into sports or is an over achiever,,,
You will never get any help with a student that is having issues,,I tried in numerous ways ..they wait till the student is failing to contact the parent,,but if your student was the quarterback on the football team they would need this corrected before the next game..smh.i even tried getting him in with a counselor,,yep I sure did,,they gave him a daily checklist,,well damn I can do that!

I had a great experience at this school. The teachers were great and were always available after school for tutoring. There are many extracurricular activities to be involved in as well. The guidance staff did a fantastic job at handling scholarships and preparing students for college. Overall, Delmar is a fantastic school!
Delmar is a small town in Delaware, and Delmar School District is the heart of this town. I've been attending ever since middle school and everyone practically knows each other, it's like a huge family. The school itself is highly supported by the parents and the students themselves, you'll never see an empty spot of bleachers when there's a home game for any sport.
Academically, there's many children who opt for honors and AP courses, there's a push for academic achievements.
Regarding to safety, there's a firm regulation of ensuring the safety of children and there's little to no bullying in the school overall.
