Top-ranked schools span Delaware’s three counties

Delaware may only be comprised of three counties – New Castle, Kent and Sussex – but its commitment to excellence in education is eminent across the entire state. In a recent publication by U.S. News and World Report, New Castle County’s Middletown High School took top honors as the highest-ranked school in the state. Meanwhile, nearby Appoquinimink High School similarly ranked high, followed by:

  • Cape Henlopen High School, Lewes, Delaware
  • Delcastle Technical High School, Wilmington, Delaware
  • Howard High School of Technology, Wilmington, Delaware
  • Lake Forest High School, Felton, Delaware
  • Milford Senior High School, Milford, DE
  • Sussex Central  High School, Georgetown, DE

Also worth mentioning, the rankings included over 31,000 high schools across all 50 states – with eight of Delaware’s 43 total high schools making the list. In other words, close to 20 percent of Delaware’s high schools are considered the best in the nation, while it makes up just 0.1 percent of all high schools reviewed.
