Principal's Message


Dear Frederick Douglass Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that I say WELCOME to the 2022-2023 school year!

For the last 7 years, I have worked with staff and students and our Frederick Douglass community to make Frederick Douglass a great place to be. Prior to coming to Delaware, I was a principal in Charles County, Maryland.

One of our main focuses this year will continue to be the 3 R's which consists of:


Responsibility and the 

Right to learn

My goal is for Frederick Douglass to be a first-class school academically and behaviorally.  In 2020, our school was named a National Blue Ribbon School and a 2020 National Distinguished ESEA School.  In 2021, our school was named a school of Continued Excellence by the State of Delaware. These three awards validate all of the hard work completed by staff and students during the last 7 years.  I couldn’t be more proud. 

Please feel free to contact me by email at [email protected] or by phone at 302-629-9213. Follow me on Twitter @CarolLeveilleeFDES and follow our Facebook page, Frederick Douglass Elementary School, to see all the great things happening at our school.

It is going to be another awesome year together!

Carol Leveillee, 

National Distinguished Principal
