Dover-Sherborn Regional School District Reviews

Dover Sherborn has an extremely strong academic curriculum. The teachers are all well qualified and trained to teach their respective subjects. Classroom resources are ample, and there is always guidance when needed. The school is fairly weak in other aspects, most notably in the arts. Funding for fine, visual, and performing arts is often nonexistant.

In the Class of 2018, I'm the only African-American METCO student. The METCO program is a voluntary integration program established in Boston in 1966 with the intention of providing an experience for Boston students to increase educational opportunities, reduce racial isolation and increase racial diversity.
Dover-Sherborn was truly a phenomenal high school that prepared me very well for higher education. I had the privilege of competing in and out of the classroom. Academics are rigorous, but teachers are more than willing to help if you ask. Classes are always under 25 students so teachers know you and your learning style well. DS not only had amazing academics, but great sports teams. I was able to earn 6 varsity letters competing on the Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field team, and compete at the state level each year. I was also able to be involved in peer mentoring groups, the school newspaper, and a club that helps foster the character of younger athletes. Overall, DSHS truly gave me a strong foundation to flourish in higher education and in life.
