My daughter went to Kindergarten here last year. They don't really prepare the kids for first grade, the classes are packed with over 22 kids per class. Her teacher was very nice but academically they are below state acedemic standards.
teachers who care, led by principal with energy and vision. high parent involvment. building is at limit for # students. student opoulation is hampered by some students/parents who do not appreciate nor do they have an interest in learning American customs/norms.
Dover has been a fantastic start for for all three of our children. They have begun their academic careers at a school that maintains a highly qualified staff, both with the teachers & the support staff. The entire school system makes parental involvement possible at many different levels. We're pleased with the schools overall atmosphere where all the children seem to thrive. We never imagined that this quality of education was possible from a public school. I am glad we stayed in Westlake and love Dover very much.
Dover is an excellent school. Teachers are well trained and take a lot of time and effort to work with the kids. Ms. Sycafuse in second grade is outstanding. Very good computer labs, music program and well stocked library. Parent involvement is a big plus.
