Dover-Sherborn Regional High School Reviews

76 reviews
All Categories
Dover Sherborn has excellent academics and a lot of incredible teachers as well. The History dept is stellar and the Science dept is also extremely impressive. Although there is a lot of work involved at DS, it prepares students for college extremely well. Because of the rigor at DS, the atmosphere is extremely competitive as it is not unusual for students to apply to ivy league schools. This environment creates a lot of unnecessary stress and ultimately leads to a lot of anxiety and depression among students. Dover Sherborn also lacks diversity. Most of the student body is white with a small percentage of minorities. As the average income in dover is well over 500, 000 a year, students attending Dover Sherborn are extremely privileged. This creates somewhat of a bubble around the school. Students lack understanding and relationships with others from different backgrounds. I feel that this is a huge drawback.

There is NO DIVERSITY! But everything else is amazing. I will give 4 stars because I believe that diversity is important. Sports and Clubs are great, we have won 3 state championships in the past year. Great school!
The environment is very welcoming as a new student my freshman year, it was very easy to make friends because the school is very small. The teachers are very attentive and the classes are small so the the education is focused on students. In addition they really value the quality of the education, it will not just be busy work. The headmaster is very invested in each student and their experience.
