The Delavan-Darien School District offers many advanced education opportunities for its students. At DDHS alone there are 16 Advanced Placement courses, which can lead to students gaining college credit before high school graduation.
Students involved in the district's Project Lead The Way program can also earn various college credits from the Milwaukee School of Engineering, UW-Platteville and UW-Stout. Middle school students actually start in the Project Lead The Way curriculum in technology education classes.
Students enrolled in the Youth Options Program at DDHS get an early taste of the college experience by taking classes at area universities or technical colleges that are not offered at the high school. Programs currently offered include such classes as Certified Nursing Assistant, Fire Protection Tech, Lodging Management and others. Students can also get on-the-job training through internships, apprenticeships and other career placement opportunities through our Career Connections program.
In the elementary through high school levels, we offer C.O.A.S.T., the district-wide Gifted and Talented program that opens up expanded and exciting learning opportunities for your student. Students meet in special sessions, often with topical experts, to conduct experiments, share new experiences and enrich learning. These workshops accelerate learning and offer new perspective on topics that may or may not be covered in regular classes.
In short, there's a lot we do here to help our students fully develop their skills, knowledge and talents. We strive to offer experiences appropriate to each student's individual needs, interests and capabilities.
