Great new building with adequate teachers. Would like to see a dress code in affect, so that students can focus more on acedemics rather than who's wearing what! Cape Henlopen Sussex Consortium has an excellent Autism Program with an amazing group of teachers & paraprofessionals!

Despite the previous negative reviews, this school is excellent and has a good educational environment. Those who feel negatively about the institution have no legitimate reason to feel this way. There is a large choice of classes and the school has an exceptional Honors/Advanced Placement (AP) program.
