Dover-Sherborn Regional High School Reviews

Dover-Sherborn provides an excellent education that thoroughly prepares you for college. The staff is dedicated & involved. Our athletics are competitive, with coaches pushing you to be better a athlete & work together as a team. Though I regard DS highly, it has areas that need improvement--it’s a wealthy, homogenous community that tends to disregard the diversity of our student body. They're under represented, but, DS does consist of varying races, sexual orientations, and religions. DS needs to work to create a safe environment for these students & address problems of those who ostracize them. DS would also benefit from an enhanced art department in classes like drawing, ceramics, guitar, and TV media. There's an incredible focus on education, but to create a well rounded student there has to be more emphasis on arts, discussion, service, & club involvement. Overall, DS is a wonderfully caring & educational community, but like any other school, has room for improvement.

I would say My experience at Dover-Sherborn was terrific because of the teachers that I had along the way. The teachers care a lot about you, and want to see you grow and succeed after you depart from there. From a freshman, all the way until you are a senior you lean many things about college, and how to be prepared for the real world. When playing sports or being part of any club or activities, you feel like you are part of a family. The two towns are small and not very diverse, which can make it harder for other students to feel apart in this school, or town. Although many teachers, parents, and faculties work very hard to make it equal for everyone that attends school here. This high school has prepared me so much for college, and after that.
This school has fostered a great environment to encourage students to be focused on academics as well as teach the value of a strong, foundational educational background. In addition to the emphasis on academics, a lot of the student body participate in sports, and the school does an effective job at supporting well rounded students with balanced schedules. While I have learned so much at this school, I would also have liked to see more guidance about getting more involved in and outside of our community. I would like to see more awareness about the diversity and culture outside of our community.
