  • This school sucks. Kids are not allowed to go to senior prom or their graduation ceremony due to lates and absences. Come on everyone wants to see their kid accept their diploma. Its horrible not a school more like a jail and the students learn nothing. A select few teachers are good but the administration is backwards and should be completely wiped out.

  • Awesome staff that love doing what they do. Not that some are better than others but it's a great atmosphere to go to school in.

  • This school spends millions of dollars and an entire years teaching to the PSSA test so the school can get federal dollars. Can you imagine all the information these kids have not learned while they are trying to get the school more $$. T This school is a joke. They actually bodily search these kids the day of graduation to make sure they dont have balloons. Yes folks balloons. Give me a break. The principal, administrator are married. The teachers are related, this school is back woods, not backwards.

  • I am a teacher for a remedial English class. In the past two years, I've calculated that 20% of my students have been lost due to expulsion, impregnation, or dropping out. Please note I am only a teacher to sophomores. Usually a sophomore is only 15-16 years old. Delaware Valley staff members need to educate our students better on topics like this.
