I think Dover elementary is a great school . My son moved here from Basett which is a great school too . The teachers The IB with common core curriculum the activities and electives .There are so many opportunities offered for kids to lap up . The school has a warm welcoming and nurturing academic environment . I believe when with Westlake having such a large number of schools within the city the schools do a great job in not just keeping up but excelling in their academic provision considering smaller school districts who have an easier task doing the same and end up being rated higher without similar challenges . I am so happy I moved to Westlake . Great school and great city !!
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.
