Dover Union Free School District helped me figure out what I want to do with my life. They had a culinary class that I replaced with Spanish 3 due to me not seeing the point of me taking Spanish due to me already having the minimum requirement. The two principles I had while there helped me overcome the bullying of not only me, but my friends as well. The teachers, Faculty and students all helped out when I broke my 5th metatarsal bone Junior year. They helped me out so much that I can not thank everybody who helped out over these four years.
As a senior in Dover High School, I have had plenty of time to truly see everything about the school and think about all the things I would change. For starters, I would begin by changing the disciplinary system. Currently it is very biased and is not right. Students should be punished rightfully for their actions. Also, I would change the range or options for classes to take. There are not many options for students to choose from and there are really none to benefit certain majors and such. But overall Dover has given me a good experience and I enjoyed my years here.
