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.
Review Delbarton School
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.
I don’t like to consider Delbarton’s classes as classes because they are more than that. They are environments. From the moment you walk over the threshold, you enter into a different world. One day you may be a scientist cutting open a sheep eyes and another day you could be a lawyer as you debate the Syrian Civil War. Delbarton’s classes engage students and make them motivated to learn. A main reason that Delbarton’s classes are so attractive is the teachers. Teachers at Delbarton are not just teachers, they are your mentors. You make a personal student-teacher relationship with each class you have. Teachers are informative, helpful and they make you enjoy learning. Responsibility and Trust are key factors in the Delbarton Philosophy. The trust at Delbarton is unlike any other school. I can leave my backpack in the hallway after school and I’ll comeback after sports practices and everything will be perfectly intact.
