Dover High School Students
College Essay Summer Assistance Program

A primary element of the application process for acceptance into college is the quality of the student essay.  We will be offering the services of an English Teacher and Guidance Counselor to assist students in their application process.  The program will run from July 25, 2016 through July 29, 2016 from the hours of 8:00 to 11:00 in the morning.  All Dover students are welcome, and it is strongly recommended that you take advantage of this opportunity.  Please call your Guidance Office for details.

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.
