Principals' Message

Andrew & Carol

Dear Frederick Douglass Families,

It is with great pride and excitement that we say WELCOME to the 2023-2024 school year!

For the last several years, I have worked with staff and students and our Frederick Douglass community to make Frederick Douglass a great place to be. Our new Associate Principal is joining us from Seaford High School to help with our continued success.

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



Right to learn

Our 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 several years.  We couldn’t be more proud. 

Please feel free to contact us 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! #FREDstrong

Carol Leveillee, 

National Distinguished Principal
