My son has only been going to this school for two years in K3/K4. My son started here in Special Ed and speech therapy for transition issue, and consequently had a half days with Mrs. Pingitore for two years. She is, without a doubt, one of the most exception teachers I've known. Her curriculum is creative and thoughtful, and she is highly responsible for my being ahead of the curve in his regular K-4 class. If you are considering a school for younger Special Ed needs, you should give very strong consideration to this school.

As an educator myself I take my childrens' education very seriously, Dover has excellent, dedicated teachers and community minded staff! They have gym, art and a school nurse. Not to mention a beautiful library. I am extremely pleased with my choice in Dover.

I am very satisfied with Dover Street School. They have excellent before and after school care, the staff is caring, and the building is lovely. The school is in a safe neighborhood, where I do not worry about them. The children come from very diverse backrounds. This school is all about inclusion. Every time I walk in Dover all the stafff know my name. Once a month the principal hosts a breakfast with the parents. The school also hosts a pinic before school starts for all the students and their families. I can not tell you home good it is to know that my child is in a safe place where people know me as a parent and value me!

I am very happy with the education my child has gotten at Dover St School. The teacher and assistants care about each and every child and it shows. I feel very welcome when I go into the office and am greeted by the ladies. Last year and this year there was talk of a merger with other south side schools. I have to say that neither ever went though and I am so happy that Dover is going to stay the wasy it is!

My daughter was at Dover and I transferred her to Humboldt Park. She too, had Ms. Pingitore; who is an awesome teacher and the kids do learn a lot! But it is what it is, basic instruction. My daughter was not challenged enough here and I pleaded with staff to change something. Said they would and never got around to it. Overall, Ms. Pingitore ROCKS but the school fails to meet MY expectations.

My son's in K3 and I've had a great experience. The staff is always nice and helpful and my son loves it. I think his teacher Mrs. Pingatore is awesome and I've seen the work they do in class and I think its right on track.

I was leary about putting my daughter at this school because of the reviews on this site, but I have only had great experiences. Although she is only in K3, she is recognized and cared for by everyone. Her teacher, Ms Pingitore, is awesome, the day care is so caring, and it's a small enough school to know everyone. She has made friends in a lot of grades and I always know how she is doing intellectually and emotionally, because the teachers and assistants always tell me what goes on. I am putting my son there next year, and I know he will do great as well.

The academic studies at Dover seem to be satisfactory. I would like to see my child challenged at a higher level,I'm sure that will be coming as she reaches 3rd grade. I would like to see more extracurricular activities. More parents need to be involved, every parent should be involved one way or another.
