I have three boys, all of which attend(ed) Dove. Elementary is such a big part of growing up and Dove ensures that it even more memorable. The teaching is solid and consistent, the leadership is visible and accessible, the PTA is active and involved. There are many stand out teachers, but if my kids were to name a few favorites they might start the list with, Mrs. Birdwell (now Henry), Mrs. Keeling, Mrs. Spath, Ms. Mery, Mrs. Pearson, Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Kerr, Mrs. Preston...It would go on and on. It is more than a school, it is a community. We've also noted that children leave Dove and go to middle school as a group, really bonded, making the middle school transition easier. There are also SO many programs, clubs, and events it makes it possible for everyone to have something extra special at Dove: Culture Club, Choir, Drummers, STUCO, Art Club, Library Programs, Talent Show, K-DOV, and on and on.
