    This district loves to sweep issues under the rug. The demographics have changed drastically and instead of admitting the problems they put on their "Lighthouse Blue Ribbon School" T-shirts and smile and wave. What a joke. I also went from K-12 in this district and now have kids at each school. I am moving. That's all I can say. The principal at DIS is helpful the principal at DHS is new (thank god). The average students fall through the cracks because the behavior mod kids are a distraction. I'm all for mainstreaming LD students but the ones that are strictly behavior problems need to be dealt with and not allowed to interfere with the regular Ed students right to a good education. Not in this district. And PS for those who have fallen for the "blue ribbon school" story do some research on "lighthouse blue ribbons". Not at all what they sold to you before the referendum vote..

    I went to Delran along with my 2 older sisters from Kindergarten to 12th grade. All 3 of us graduated from well known highly regarded 4 yr colleges and have since gone to have successful careers. We all had wonderful experiences in the Delran school district. One of the best memories include Homecoming week... a fun memorable experience Delran high school ensures. Please note that the NJ school report card includes test scores from the transient renters in the area that do not speak English as a first language. This is a known fact to the people that live here but unfortunately not to many others and can scare people away without this knowledge and who go strictly by the NJ report card that includes all scores. Delran has many amazing teachers principals and staff that do a fantastic job and are there before school and after school to offer extra help. I still live locally and now have nieces attending Millbridge and 100% support it. They have been flourishing and I'm not surprised. Just thought my experience as a person with first hand experience in this town for many years could help someone.

    Really not that good of a school just look at the NJ school report card and see that it's a mediocre school district which is sad for all the taxes that we pay and the generous contracts they've been getting all these years. Funny how the teachers and administrators showed their true colors after the last school budget was voted down and how the town council caved in to them. Now who do you really think cares about your kids?

    Wonderful teachers & staff. Our two older children are both recent graduates and both aren attending college. We also have one in pre-school getting ready for kindergarten. Extras Many opportunities to get involved including sports after school help and fun groups.
