  • My daughters attended this school years ago after we moved from NY. I found that the school was way ahead of what my girls had learned in NY. In fact, my youngest was behind and I had to hire a tutor to catch her up on what she did not learn in a Long Island school. We later moved to Pittsburgh, and both did excellent. They graduated with honors and went on to college. Both are professionals today. I think DDS was great for my girls.

  • My family recently moved here from NY. I know when my child was in the NY school system they had rigorous academics. Since coming to Dingmans Delaware my daughter has had maybe three nights of homework in a month and the classwork she is doing here she did 2 years ago at her old school in NY. The teachers seem really great but I'm a little worried that the expectations aren't set high enough.
