  • My son is a senior at UD. This school is so overcrowded that there is no way that they can serve all the kids. The kids at the very top and very bottom of the scale are well served. All the rest are pushed through. I will move before my daughter has to go here. It's too bad, because the grammar and middle schools in the district are excellent!
