We feel that the admission team really wants to find the most suitable students and families for admission. The in-person interview was a wonderful way to evaluate them as they evaluated our daughter to make sure that their rigorous program and values would be compatible with student ability and expectation as well as the family's traditions. At the time of our application it was wise to write the Secondary School Admission Test but i believe that the other components of the application were more important. We started in grade 9 and our daughter was able to participate in a Reach Ahead math course to prepare her for the advanced standing of current Del students. Her math skills improved tremendously and she met some wonderful new friends.
