Get rid of the office secretary! Ms. Culler! She is very rude and mean to the children. She does not deserve to work with kids because she don't know how to talk to them or parents. I've seen and experienced this myself

I am a parent of a kindergarden and 2nd grader at Dover and have so far not been pleased with the administration. The school's appearance and some of the teachers are great, but the principal seems to be more interested in controlling parents and the outward appearance of the school than the well-being of the children. She is disrespectful and rude. My children have had several great teachers, however the principal has not made it easy for them either. Many are transferring due to her control issues. Dover would be a great school if a few changes were made.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
