High Schools in Capital School District


The Capital School District in Delaware is home to two high schools: Dover High School and Kent County Secondary ILC.

The racial makeup of the schools reflects the broader demographic trends within the Capital School District, with both schools serving a majority African American student population. However, test scores at Dover High School are generally lower than the district and state averages across various subjects, suggesting the school may be facing challenges in academic performance that warrant further investigation.

Overall, the data highlights the diversity of high schools within the Capital School District and the need for a nuanced understanding of the unique characteristics and needs of each institution. Continued monitoring and targeted interventions may be necessary to ensure equitable educational opportunities for all students in the district.
