Dover High School is absolutely one of a kind. Never have I witnessed a schools where not only the teachers and students get involved but the community as a whole. Having the entire community by your side allows for so many different paths to take on your way to success. The Dover Public Education Foundation is a collection of hundreds of residents in Dover who have pooled over one hundred thousand dollars to not only renovate athletic and recreational fields, but created multiple scholarships to help students secure an educated future.

I would say I love our extracurricular activities more than I do our main classes. In most of our extracurricular activities we do a lot of community service, which teaches us many things. Not only does it teach us how to communicate with the different partners we create, but it shows us how important getting out in our community is. I believe our extracurricular activities our good for everyone. I think if you have clubs and organizations like FBLA, EAST, FCCLA, Beta, etc, you should join them to get the best experience you can in your high school carrier.

This school like every other school does have its ups and downs. I wouldn't change the school I'm going to thought because it's a small school and I know everyone. By knowing everyone, you make a tighter bond with your grade throughout the thirteen years you are with them, good and bad. That's something you need in life starting off. Our school shows us the bad things, like the drama between students, the bad teachers who never teach, etc. By showing us this it teaches us to never be like that. Never get a job somewhere and not fulfill your duty you have there. It also shows us to be kind to one another and not be that drama starting person. So yes I would choose my school again if I could start all over.
