Delcastle Technical High School opened its doors in the fall of 1969; however, the completion of the auditorium and district offices was not achieved until 1972. Its unique name is the result of a contest that asked people to help name the school. The winning entry was the idea of one student to combine “Delaware” and “New Castle County.” The school is arranged by three distinct wings: A, B and C. The “A” Wing consists of industrial, construction, and automotive-related career fields as well as Technical Drafting; the “B” Wing houses Digital Media (including the television studio), Graphic Arts, Culinary Arts, Business Technology, Cosmetology, Production & Imagining and additional classrooms. The “C” Wing generally comprises academic classrooms, yet does include some career programs such as Chemical Laboratory and Dental Assisting. Additionally, Delcastle Technical’s campus includes the Marshallton building in Marshallton, Delaware and houses the medical, foreign language studies, and business technology programs.
It is a pleasure to welcome you to another outstanding school year. Our dedicated staff is energized about the start of the school year.
Our goal is to continue our forty-six year old tradition of preparing students to be career and post-secondary ready in a supportive learning environment. As a team of highly qualified staff and parents, I am confident that we will achieve this goal.
Our passionate teachers and staff are looking forward to working with you to make this a successful school year. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
