Dover Senior High School Reviews
Dover Senior High School is a very large school with many opportunities to join clubs, attend social events, and become a part of something bigger than yourself. Its new building came with a new mindset of students here. While the large atmosphere can become difficult to make your voice heard, the drive of students to make change is admirable. Dover supplied me with the friends I will remain close with throughout my life and an education that I can continue to build upon as I progress to college. Dover is a school that is full of opportunity and familiar faces!
My high school career has been a time to remember. Unfortunately, I am graduating in 2018, which doesn't allow me to use the new $85 million school that is being constructed. The CTC, Career Technical Center, is filled with a variety of opportunities for students. Kids from all over come to enroll in these courses that range from Automotive to Animal Science to Nursing. Like any other school, you will run into strong teachers and weaker ones. Not only is Dover High School good for academics, it also offers a wide variety of athletics and clubs too! Overall, Dover High School was a good place to learn and has prepared me for college.
Going to Dover High School was a fun experience. Compared to my old high school, Noble High in Berwick ME, I found myself with a significantly greater amount of freedom in the classes that I could take, and instead of taking menial, boring core classes, I took entirely interesting electives my senior year that I feel I have taken more from than I would have at my old school. While the condition of the high school is bad, I believe this is the last year before they move to the new school, so expect that to change!
