The Appoquinimink School District, located in southern New Castle County, Delaware, serves more than 10,000 students in grades PK-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 systems, we've learned to thrive on change. Since 2000, Appoquinimink has opened ten new schools, finished additions at six other buildings, and completed an aggressive schedule of renovations designed to support 21st century learning. Thanks to the strong backing we've received from parents, homeowners and the community; we can confidently state that our educational facilities are among the best in the tri-state area!
Appoquinimink is the first public school system in Delaware to adopt strategically important 21st Century languages in every elementary, middle and high school. By the time they graduate, our students have the option of sampling a total of six different languages, including a college-level course in Spanish.
Other globally-focused initiatives include: cultural exchange opportunities (virtual and in person), world affairs programs, service learning to emphasize the connection between community responsibility and global citizenship, and entrepreneurial activities.
In addition to developing cultural awareness, we work to develop 21st Century skills including: essential thinking and reasoning, the ability to work collaboratively, learn new technologies, skillfully exchange ideas and information across borders, and develop a positive work ethic.
As you can see, we are working in very concrete ways to "give our kids the world." Our goal, as always, is to make it a time of unparalleled success for ALL our students.
Appoquinimink offers a traditional small town atmosphere in a location that provides easy access to major business and entertainment centers. Residents are just 30 minutes from Delaware's largest city, one hour from the beach, and minutes from nationally recognized colleges and universities.
