Dover Sherborn School district is one of the top notch school districts in the state. The high school equipped with nice classrooms, well kept hallways, and lovely Staff. The Middle school only 20 years old is amazingly modern with technology. The two Elementary schools that locate in the towns of Sherborn and Dover are very welcoming and enjoyable to learn in. The Sports and clubs are always very full of excitement (if you play Golf, Tennis, or Lacrosse, this is perfect for you as these sports have won states multiple times in the last 5 years). I feel very safe in my classroom all day and everyday whether I’m walking through the halls to the next class, or walking to the cafeteria. The cafeteria situated in between the middle and High-school serves very enjoyable food with plenty of seating options along with outdoor seating when the weather is nice.

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.
