The Appoquinimink School District, located in southern New Castle County, Delaware, serves more than 7,700 students in grades K-12. At Appoquinimink, students, parents, educators and the community share a common vision about high achievement, a fact which has helped our students earn one of the best academic records in the state.
As Delaware's fastest growing school system, we've learned to thrive on change. This year a free, full-day kindergarten program was implemented across the district. Research is clear that full-day kindergarten programs have lasting, long-range benefits for all students, especially those who may be starting their school careers academically behind their peers. This new option has proved overwhelmingly popular with families, and we look forward to immediate gains from the program.
Meanwhile, our fast-paced growth (approximately 500 new pupils per year) continues to fuel new school construction. Last year, we opened a new Early Childhood Center and completed an exciting addition/renovation at the historic Louis L. Redding Middle School. Our present building projects, Alfred G. Waters Middle School and Appoquinimink High, continue on target to open in fall 2007 and 2008 respectively. These state of the art facilities will make it possible to create smaller learning communities at the middle and high school level. They also support our long-term goal of creating the rigorous, challenging environment needed to prepare Appoquinimink graduates to serve as 21st century leaders. Finally, this year we will receive money from the state to begin construction on the remaining projects approved in the 2003 referendum. This includes a new field house and bleachers at Billings Stadium, and new baseball and softball fields, a track, tennis courts and walking trail at Middletown High.
