From the Superintendent

Dover High School Students

A good friend of Dover Schools and myself, Mr. David Pennella, is a very active lawyer in Morris County. Mr. Pennella has informed me that the Morris County Bar Foundation will be offering a free program to students who may be interested in pursuing a career in the field of Law. On Saturday, September 24, 2016, a variety of professionals including Judges, Attorneys, Members of the County Prosecutor’s Office, and Law Schools will be hosting a meeting for students. This program will start at 9:00 in the morning, and will end at 12:45. It is free and parents are welcome to attend. The meeting will be held at the Morristown Campus of County College, 30 Schuyler Place, 2nd Floor, suite 220 B in Morristown, New Jersey.   To attend, please email Mr. Andrew R. Jacobs, Esq at ajacobs@arjacobslaw.com. It is important that you email Mr. Jacobs to let him know you are coming or you will not be admitted. Please stop in my office if I can help you in any way.

U.S. News and World Report Awards
Silver Medal to Dover High School

Dover High School has once again been recognized by U. S. News and World Report!  This award is based on an analysis of the 2014-2015 school year strength of program and test scores from 2013-2014.  This is a great honor in which our students, staff and community should take a moment to reflect on our accomplishment and the concomitant validation of, not only our efforts, but the determination this achievement represents.
