DeLaveaga has inspiring teachers and a great school staff who really care about the kids; There is also a very active parent-teacher club which organizes events and raises funds to help pay for art, music, educational speakers, and other things not covered by the school budget.

I have two children at Delaveaga (both gifted), and am thrilled with the level of parent involvement and teacher quality. There's a new principal this year (2008-09), and she has a lot of challenges due to the large school size, but my children are learning and thriving.

I think some of the teachers are great but a lot of them are burned out! I feel the safety needs to be better at the school and their is a lot of bullying going on at recess and lunch. The dual immersion program is overcrowding the school and they cater more to that program than the other classrooms!

Delaveaga has been a very good school for our children- wonderful teachers and a lot of parent support. It's a bit overcrowded, but we're working on facility improvements to accommodate the increased enrollment.

The teacher is great, the classrooms are great, the principal is great, the other parents are great - when we moved we made sure to stay in the district because of the school.

My child is in 2nd grade and has been in the Dual Immersion Program since Kinder. The program is incredibly successful. My child did not speak a word of Spanish when she entered and she is bilingual and biliterate in Spanish and English - at a 2nd grade level, of course. (Most of the day in Spanish ...  Read more
