Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

I like the Choir in this school, Our Choir teacher (7th and 8) is really passionate. So is the 6th Grade Choir teacher. Our PLTW teacher is good at teaching us, and has good humor. The Art teacher is nice and I think she does a good job teaching at Dover. The PE teachers are good and care about being our teachers. They even put music on when we have PE. The experience is interesting.

This school is lacking in some areas. They REALLY need to improve school lunches there.Some students said they got food poisoning. Unhealthy packaged food is served, just carrots and lettuce maybe celery in peanut butter. Thats your salad bar. Fruit is available, not mature though. French Fries are awful and Dominoes Pizza is served everyday. And the Tray is awful. Tornado special is served in plastic wrappings under heaters. Also, there are students I know that don't do their homework. For students that don't do their assignment on time have what we call "Study Room" after school to finish their work but also pay time for not doing homework. The grading scales are different here and they have higher standards. Facebook addiction and Dating peer pressure exist in this school. I think it interferes with education and social life too much. If your going for a good career for collge, not highschool dropouts I would not recommend this school. The teachers are caring, but the students barely study, most of them at least. If you get a Honor Roll, you will get a card called a "Tornado Card" It will give you a coupon for three things.

The grade scales harder. But I have a 3.88 and I'm in the 'harder' classes you might say. You'll get better education but colleges don't take special consideration which puts you at a disadvantage.

my kids love dover middle school. the teachers really are involved along with the principals especially with troubled kids that need a little more guidance. they have d.o.c which involves them in volunteer work within the community. the biggest is the leaf raking for the elderly that cannot other wise do them selves. it really makes the kids feel good about themselves when they helped another person.

I think this school has been the greatest for my daughter personally, and their higher grading scale pushed her to get better grades.

Dover city schools chose a different grading scale than most other schools. What would be an A at another school is only a B at a Dover school. This puts the students at an unfair disadvantage when applying to colleges. Their GPA will be lower at a Dover school even though they are making the same percentage grade as a student in another district. Since GPA affects college acceptance, Dover students are not evaluated fairly by colleges that they may apply to. I would not recommend Dover School district to anyone but 'gifted' children who can maintain at least a 95% in all classes at all times.
