First State School

First State School gives children and adolescents who would otherwise be homebound with serious illnesses the chance to attend school with their peers while they get the medical treatment they need. Located at Wilmington Hospital, First State School offers kindergarten through high-school education to children with diabetes, sickle-cell anemia, severe asthma, cancer and other illnesses that preclude attendance at regular school. First State School is a collaborative effort of Christiana Care Health system and the Department of Education through Red Clay School District.
