Delbarton School Reviews

All Categories
Beautiful campus. Even with relatively new FAC and re-facing of Trinity, much of school facilities are antiquated or average. School is great fit for highly athletic - not mediocre...highly athletic. Expanded classes takes away from former closeness within the school. Honor code is not upheld as it should. Not highly academic. Grading very flexible. If you are searching out academics, local co-ed public school in good town will probably better meet need without the constantly increasing tuition. If you get a good teacher, they are great. Others not such a good experience. Not great prep for college. Same parents always involved. Boys that get key positions within school and college counseling correlates direct to those that significantly contribute financially to the school.
Review Delbarton School
SPECIAL school that espouses WORK ETHIC, KINDNESS, COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP. Administration & teachers are compassionate, astute in planning curriculum, knowledgeable about subjects. Standards are high/ RIGOROUS, workload is demanding, each boy expected to do best work following HONOR CODE. Facilities encourage ACTIVE LIFESTYLE - have to walk outdoors between building for meals, gym, and some classes. ARTS PROGRAM has great teachers/ musicians/ artists with TALENTED students. CLUBS are numerous. Community service is a sport here - not required but everyone does it by choice. All sports and participants are valued, great skills in TEAMWORK and SPORTSMANSHIP are learned outside the classroom. Many club sports too including gym soccer, ultimate frisbee, cricket. Sports not required, but many kids participate. The STUDENTS are responsible, conscientious. There is great community, comraderie, spirit. PARENTS are warm, welcoming.
Delbarton School's key difference comes down to brotherhood. The community is unique. The community emphasizes on charity. For example, we collected 50,000 pounds in the 2016 Thanksgiving Food Drive. However, the academics are just like any other exceptional school. While it may be the same information, teachers are willing to help and really care about your success. College counseling is personal and helpful. There are many extracurriculars you can choose from even with a small school. Furthermore, Delbarton's sports program is usually among the best in the state. Delbarton is famous for its soccer, football, wrestling, hockey, tennis, golf, rugby, and lacrosse programs. Finally, Delbarton has a very beautiful, big campus students enjoy.

However, Delbarton needs to reevaluate its skyrocketing tuition, computer requirement, diversity, and shortened school year.
