We have four schools; Delavan-Darien High School (Grades 9 - 12), Phoenix Middle School (Grades 5 - 8), Darien Elementary School (Grades 3 & 4), and Turtle Creek Elementary School (Grades 4K - 2). In addition, we also have the Delavan-Darien Virtual Program (Grades Kindergarten - 12). Together, the staff in our schools educate about 2000 students from September through early June. We also have a summer school program, called Comet Summer Camp, for all grade levels.

SCHOOL REPORT CARDS

Beginning in the 2012-13 school year, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction began giving individual school “report cards” to show areas where schools in Wisconsin excel, or where additional work is needed. The report cards uses standard measures across all state schools in an attempt to give an accurate comparison between schools and districts.

* Due to COVID-19 pandemic there is no accountability report for the 2019-2020 school year. So, there are no 2019-20 school accountability reports to provide. Also, Darien Elementary was closed for the 2018-2019 school year so there is no accountability report for Darien during that school year.
