All of the teachers are fantastic, everyone wants to help no matter what the circumstances are. Dover High School is currently under construction for a new school in 2020. This is going to be one of the greatest things to occur for the Dover City School district.

I love the staff and faculty, however the building needs attention. The building is nearly falling apart, but they are getting a new school soon!
It was an incredible experience! I made lots of friends. The teachers are all so nice and very helpful! The Sporting events were very fun to attend, especially since the city of Dover has such a supportive community! Also, my social life and academic life had greatly prospered at that school! It is a good school to attend.
