Attending Delaware Military Academy was the best decision I have made thus far. Delaware Military Academy helped prepare me academically and atheletically for the next level of schooling I was going to attend. What intrigued me the most about DMA was how involved the teachers were in your academic life. The staff is very trustworthy and was always there for me when I was having trouble at home and pushed me to be the best student I could be. The structure of the school molded me into a confident young woman and presented me with tools I needed to become a leader. Delaware Military Academy is an incredible school that I am happy to recommend to anyone!

The Delaware Military Academy is a very well structured academy that does very well developing maturity and responsibility in their students through the NJROTC program. The military aspect is very unique and teaches discipline to all its cadets. I would recommend this school to anybody!
I did not like anything about it, to be honest I would not recommend this school to anyone. The teachers did not want to be there and the sports program were very expensive and unorganized. I was miserable at this school and there was no diversity. Students come from posh areas and felt very entitled. Some were friendly, some were a little ignorant and rude. The school facilities were old and poor, the school needed money and sponsors.I did at least feel safe in the school. The school did not enforce the conduct and the education was below average. I was excited to graduate and leave.
