We are proud to provide our students with the highest quality education, enabling them to develop academically, emotionally, physically, and socially.   We are committed to ensuring that our students benefit from challenging and rewarding academics, fine arts, athletics, and citizenship opportunities.  We emphasize a challenging and relevant curriculum that respects the unique qualities of each individual learner.  

The combination of talented and dedicated staff, strong family and community support, and students who inspire us every day make West Delaware Schools a great place to learn and to grow. 

I feel privileged to serve as superintendent of the West Delaware School District and invite you to join us on our journey toward excellence!
