    Delbarton School Reviews

    Unless your son is a gifted hockey, soccer, football or lacrosse player or an extremely self-motivated scholar, Delbarton will disappoint. The culture and focus of the school continues to be about sports above all. Arts facilities are up to date, but the adults in charge are weak, and there is little institutional focus on anything beyond sports. Kids involved in less popular sports or other campus activities are treated as second class citizens by their peers, teachers and administration. The sports culture is stifling. When you review the college outcomes on the school website, beware: those Ivy League outcomes come to those who have been groomed to play their chosen sport since birth or who have family connections that pave the way for entry. If you are considering Delbarton as an academic institution, be warned that you would do better to consider your local public school.

    As with any select school, it is not a fit for everyone. As a family, you have to believe and trust in the school's mission on what they are trying to achieve with these young men. Some will find it difficult, some will embrace the challenge and some will rise to exceed expectations. The education that these young men receive will prepare them for the future. The grace, character and sometimes hard lessons make life long changes. The teachers are caring and phenomenal. Faculty and parent volunteers are astounding. "Get cut down and grow back stronger." This is exactly what life is and this is how Delbarton prepares their students. We are blessed to be a part of this family.
    Delbarton is truly a wonderful school for boys to become highly educated, respectful, hard working young men. It is a great environment. Outside the school, you will meet people that passionately love the school. Conversely, there will be people that passionately dislike the school. The latter is typically due to a family member or friend that was not accepted and they felt the boy should have been accepted. Delbarton is a very academically and extracurricular diverse community that not only spans athletics but the arts. Do not listen to what others say. I highly recommend that you and your son visit Delbarton and your son does a student for a day. You will be amazed by the Delbarton experience.
