Every high school is different. Dover High School is a school that I am thankful for attending. Although there were hard moments along the way, I would not change my history with the school. There were teachers who made me feel accepted and safe even when I felt overwhelmed. The dedication some tecahers had with their students proved that the school was interested in their students. The help received will not be forgotten and the resources the school offered was more than enough. Although there are things that could be improved such as, the diversity of the school, intolerance was not too prominent. Dover is a school in which a person is able to learn and grow as they prepare to move forward in life.

I liked that it was a small school so everybody knew everybody. The teachers were also easy going and they made their lessons interesting. I would like if they invested money in fixing the school like installing a new air conditioner, working smart boards, and other things. They could also add new clubs and get rid of the old ones that nobody participates in. It was also be good if they provided drinks like apple or orange juice rather than just milk. The food could also use some improvement.
Dover is a small school, we only have about 115 on average per class. But looking at the surrounding schools we are bigger in size. As a student it’s great to see the student involvement in the school, as a school no matter what the circumstances are we come together and support eachother. And I feel this because we are such a small knit community where almost everyone knows you and you know everyone. The only real envy I had when it came to wanted to be in a bigger school was definitely the diversity. Not just in people, but for sports, some teams can be good but we do not have the selection like other larger schools. Overall I feel like I had a great experience at Dover High School.
