They do not. My niece and nephew has been bullied from kindergarten through middle school, and now high school. The teachers allow this form of behavior . Someone needs to give proper anti-bullying behavior classes. They need to learn the psychological damage done by continued bullying.
My nephew and niece are now in the high school. Same thing. Being bullied unmercifully. Teachers do not care. The boy was suspended for two days and came right back at my nephew. My niece leaves school in tears. No one cares. This school needs new administration. Bullying is condoned. It is 2016 and it is apparent someone needs to educate the teachers and the administration of the long lasting affects of being bullied. These children told me they cannot learn because of the chaotic atmosphere in the school. Teachers screaming at them because they are being bullied!! I am about to go to the news with this. It has to end. My nephew could have been killed when a bully knocked him almost out last week. Do you think the teachers called an ambulance or send him home to go to a doctor? No, they do not care..... This school is a farce and an easy check for the teachers.
It is great to see that someone else thinks the school principal is inadequate and that the secretary is mean. AGAIN MY NEPHEW HAS BEEN BULLIED FROM 1st grade to 4 th and the administration and teachers hold him at fault. He hates school, it is a hateful school. Someone needs to get a trained counselor for the mental damage to these children, it will affect them for a lifetime. School is hell for him, and no one does anything except blame the child. Obviously no counseling or training on the effects of bullying and the life long effects thereof. I am getting my bachelors in this field. If they need someone, I would surely work their to prevent suicide and low self esteem in these children. This school has outward ratings, but inside is a seething cesspool of uncaring teachers and admin.
The only thing Dover cares about is the PASS test but that wont get the kids to the next grade. Thay have tutoring for PASS test but the kids that are failing there classes thats too bad!!!!!! The kids that learn easily are the kids they care about !!!
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.
