Dover High School has already been an amazing experience for me. All of the teachers in the school care about each and every student deeply, even if they aren't teaching you at the moment. They always make decisions that are in your best interest. It may be just a regular public school, but it's helped me through some of the worst times of my life. Many resources are given if you need them, and they are very helpful. The Principal and Vice Principal are so caring and they want you to be very succeeding in your life to come. Our counselor, Mrs. Bates, can help you through just about any problem you have! We get rewarded for doing very good things, and have the proper punishment for doing bad things. Some people may disrespect the school property, but I could never. This school has a special meaning and will have one for generations to come. I highly recommend Dover High School as one of the best schools in Pope County.

Dover High School is a very close-knit school. Everybody knows everybody. Dover High provides a warm and caring environment fro all students to learn in. Not only have I learned a lot of educational lessons at Dover High, I have also learned many life lessons. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to attend Dover High School for the rest of my High School years.
I really like Dover High School and think It is one of the best schools around. I wish some of the discipline actions were different but I understand that they are doing their best!
