    Superior school! Quality teaching and learning in a stimulating environment. Especially the individualized programs and activities for special need children. This program is just a part of the overall school curriculum but an excellent choice for parents in need. The administrative staff teachers teachers aides janitorial and cafeteria personnel are all top notch. They are responsive to questions and concerns and proactive. Parents are always invited and encouraged to participate in both school hour and after school activities. A much needed nurturing educational institution here in Delaware. You can be proud to have your student attend Caesar Rodney School District.
