    "Great Schoool. Fun loving children all highly motivated. Excellent teachers and administrators. Leads the way on how public schools can have both great teachers and motivated students"

    "great school all around. Hands down to the principal and the building chief working together to appeal children from all over the state. the staff members are super friendly and the kids at cab and charter are amazing, extreemly respectfull and mature for thier age. The chief operator over there does alot to keep the building clean and safe for the children. I wouldnt even question sending my child to cab calloway or charter for middle and senior high school. I personally have seen what its like at other public schools and this one is far different and one of a kind. keep up the great work!"

    "I have a daughter who attends this school. The academics in the school is outstanding. They have a very nice way to impart education, and it is working. My child's vocabulary has improved tremendously. The teachers are more goal oriented and do give a lot of leg room for assignments including accepting them for late evaluation , without being excessively penalizing about it. No problem about bullying or other non sense that happens in many schools. Good children very motivated to learn. They do place you in an appropriate learning group to complement your interests. No doubt that they have the best art program in the state but do not be fooled by its title as an art school. They share the same building with another great school, charter school of wilmington and they do a lot of co-ordinated programs together, including band and sports. Cab and charter compliment each other with their great programs and the students benefit from the great talent of teachers and students. Cafeteria offers wide menu including vegan and vegetarian for the palate . Admission to the school is restricted by audition to 2 art form and hence they are selective in who gets admitted."

    "I attended Cab Calloway from 6th grade until my senior year of high school, and I can honestly say it's a wonderful place. The education that I received there really helped to prepare me for college. The school offers a good amount of AP classes with very knowledgeable and helpful teachers. The last reviewer pointed out that some of the teachers are "boring and uninspiring," but you will find that at any school, and likely in greater numbers elsewhere. I had a lot excellent and passionate teachers at Cab, many of whom I still visit today, two years after graduating. It's a really fabulous school with smart and talented kids (and great DSTP scores) and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with a serious interest in the arts and education."

    "I must disagree with many of the reviewers here. My son is in 9th grade, his first year at Cab, having been in private school until now. He is extremely happy at Cab, but his grades have been erratic--classes he should have no problem with, he simply finds the teachers boring and uninspiring. They can't seem to bring their subject matter to life enough to make him care to do much work. These classes are very large and while teachers claim to make themselves available, the limitations they impose on that availability make their claims no more than lip service. My son is involved in performing arts, and while it's wonderful he gets to practice his art every day, in reality the productions and the talent in this school are sadly no greater than in any other public school. The building, in spite of all the upgrades, is depressing and ugly."
