Dover-Sherborn Regional School District Reviews

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.

Dover-Sherborn is very cliquey. There is no diversity whatsoever. The students tend to be very stuck up. There has been several fires set off in the bathrooms with an unknown arsonist. Teachers are all very good. I have learned a lot from them. Administration is the not the best. The assistant headmaster is way too involved. The food is horrendous. Every Tuesday is Pizza Tuesday. They get pizza in from a local pizza store which is actually quite good, but when it gets served at the school it is nasty. The school is very outdated. It is straight out of the 1980s.
Dover-Sherborn is an excellent high school. The teachers and staff show a lot of interest for the students and work really hard to create a positive and challenging learning environment. The school really teaches their students and prepares them for college. The school itself is in great condition and has great materials and resources. It could see some improvements with diversity.
