SELBYVILLE, Del. – A high percentage of Indian River School District students ranked proficient in reading, social studies, science and math, after taking the Delaware Comprehensive Assessment System test in the spring, according to officials.

These high rankings surpassed state averages in every category except ninth and 10th grade math, officials say, which was the district’s most proficient category for other grades.

Fifth grade students in the district excelled in math, reading and science, ranking second and third in the state respectively, according to officials. Tenth grade students also excelled in reading and science, ranking sixth in both categories.

Indian River High School, Lord Baltimore Elementary School, East Millsboro Elementary School, Selbyville Middle School, Long Neck Elementary School and Southern Delaware School of the Arts all ranked high in different categories for the state, officials said.

The state was also pleased with John M. Clayton Elementary School for closing ethnic and socioeconomic gaps, according to officials.

Some district students also improved their low scores from the previous fall, with 73 percent meeting or exceeding state standards in math and 64 percent meeting or exceeding state standards in reading during the spring, officials said.

However, the percentage of improvement has decreased from the previous year, according to District Superintendent Susan Bunting.
