For the most part I love my school. Dover High School very small; we have somewhere between 400-500 students at our school. Being from a small school allows for lots of peer connection. As a junior, I know all of the juniors, most of the seniors and sophomores, and a few freshmen. Our school does have a few flaws that mostly have to do with the age of our school building itself.

I liked that I knew everybody there, but Dover has a really bad bullying problem. Its not only the students bullying, its also the teachers there. If they would just find a way to limit that problem, then this would be a much more enjoyable experience.
More attempts at community involvement and support for school activities, sports, etc. not only specific activities.

Better Quality Teachers....specifically Math and Science (all fields).
