Elementary Schools in Capital School District


The Capital School District in Delaware is home to 8 elementary schools serving students from pre-kindergarten through 4th grade. These schools vary in their academic performance, student demographics, and resource allocation, with a few standout institutions leading the way.

Among the top-performing schools is Booker T. Washington Elementary School, which ranks 50th out of 103 Delaware elementary schools and boasts the highest proficiency rates in both English Language Arts and Mathematics for 3rd and 4th graders. This success may be attributed to the school's relatively low student-teacher ratio of 10.4. Another high-achieving school is Hartly Elementary School, which ranks 58th statewide and has the highest percentage of white students (68.29%) among the district's schools.

In contrast, schools like Towne Point Elementary School and East Dover Elementary School have lower proficiency rates on the Smarter Balanced Assessments, which may be linked to their more diverse student populations. The data also suggests a potential correlation between higher per-student spending, as seen at Booker T. Washington Elementary School, and better academic performance.
