I went to this school way back in the 60s. I loved it and live close so I visit the area often. Of course alot has changed but I remember the Science Center and that other schools used to come to visit the science center for f field trips. I am glad to see that it is still a good school as I had a great experience there. I had a crush on my 5th grade teacher who was the coolest ever. There are alot more buildings now on the playground. When I was there it was all open playground and only the 2 story buildings that are there. Keep up the good work Delevan, you are the best.

We saw them all - public, private, charter, magnet, charter-magnet, and still ended up at Delevan because it's got the best academics out there. (Also it's pretty much the only elementary school with open enrollment in NELA!) And the arts & science programs they brand really well elsewhere, they have those too, just not in as shiny a package. The school is getting a new building though, and working towards International Baccalaureate accreditation, which would bring foreign language education to the school too. Lots of good things happening. Take a tour and check it out!

My son loves learning here! Teacher and staff have worked together with us to find solutions whenever he's had a hard time adapting in the classroom. We've seen involved families, great academics, and an adaptive approach to teaching that focuses on the kids' needs. Says a lot that teachers want to stay here for years or even decades, even when a lot of staff development is required for new programs & tech.

My son is in his first year at Delevan and we are so happy with our experience. I'm trying to be involved with the school and have gotten to know a bit of the lay of the land and as I learn more, I get so excited for my son to continue here. Each grade level has excellent and dedicated teachers. The principal is amazing. Ms Woo knows all the children and is so kind and warm to them. She is also very focused on high achievement from her students and staff and is always thinking about how to best prepare our kids for the future. Every staff member is going above and beyond. This is a great school for social-emotional development and for strong academics. They have a lot of great changes happening like a new building and becoming an International Baccelearte school. I highly recommend this small and wonderful school.

I love the school, hate the principal. Never has there been such poor leadership by someone who is so unqualified and lacks knowledge. Delevan deserves so much better and a change is needed like the previous wonderful principal. Ms. Woo the current principal is the most disconnected and unqualified principal.
