About W. Reily Brown

W. Reily Brown Elementary is proud of its many exemplary programs! Qualified students participate in our Talented and Gifted (TAG) program, which includes the annual Odyssey of the Mind competition at the University of Delaware. Fourth and fifth graders have the opportunity to serve on Student Council, which conducts school spirit days and runs the school store. Third graders make and sell their own products during Market Day. WRB also hosts an annual Art Fair, several chorus & band concerts, and quarterly movie nights for students and family members. Our annual Wax Museum, featuring famous historical figures live and in costume, is a must-see! Students at our school finish out the year with their families at the annual Read and Relax Picnic on the last day of school.


The Caesar Rodney School District has established a curriculum development process which supports alignment to the existing Delaware State Standards and Grade Level Expectations. This process involves teacher and administrative input through a Curriculum Cabinet and Council process. The preparation of our students as life-long learners in a global community of the 21st century society is the unifying objective of this process. The curriculum not only identifies essential knowledge and skills, but also supports students' development in problem solving and gathering and using resources that will enable them to succeed. Each content area (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, World Languages, Physical Education, Health, and Family and Consumer Sciences) also has an Assessment OF Learning and Assessment FOR Learning component to support students in the learning process and to determine specific performance relative to the standards.
