Exemplary Programs
North Georgetown Elementary was recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School and a State Distinguished Title I School in 2006. NGE has also been recognized by the Delaware Department of Education as a school that has met AYP for the past 11 years. We have many programs that challenge students in the areas of math, reading, science, social studies, writing, and technology. La Casita, First State, and Georgetown Boys and Girls Club are among the community partners that help provide extended learning opportunities for our students. NGE also works with Sussex Central High School to provide high school students the opportunity to intern with teachers at NGE. These high school students work with our students to learn more about the craft of teaching and to provide additional support to our students. NGE uses an Early Bird before-school program to provide intervention support and previewing opportunities for learners. NGE also participates in the Creative Mentoring Program.
