Welcome, to the Dover Union Free School District. As you drive up the driveway to the High School/Middle School, you will see our seniors have painted pictures, murals, and symbols that represent their experience at Dover. As you walk through our schools, you will see beautiful student-painted murals and doors in the Middle/High School, and in all of our schools there are numerous displays of student writing, art, and projects. If you heard the speeches of our students at the 8th grade moving-up ceremony and graduation, there was a common theme - sense of community. We take great pride and go to great lengths to embrace this strong sense of community and connectedness to Dover.
It is this theme that holds us together to provide the best possible education for the students of Dover. Our commitment to work together for the benefit of everyone is woven into the rigorous curriculum, professional development, professional learning communities, developing a fully inclusive school, our character education programs, scheduling practices, and our extra-curricular activities.
We want everyone to be connected to our great school, receive the benefits of it, and contribute to make it better. I will work hard to continue with the great traditions of this community and give our stakeholders the opportunity to live to their calling.

ROCKSTAR SUPERSTAR has been rescheduled for Tuesday March 11, 2014. Parents are invited to an evening presentation in the auditorium of the HS/MS at 6pm. The message of this presentation is "Sobriety is Cool!" The Dynamic speaker will share his knowledge and experiences on subjects related to anti-drugs, addiction, bullying, recovery, self-esteem, and dream catching. This is a great opportunity for parents to get involved and talk to their kids about the hazards of drugs and the importance in making healthy choices.
Recent changes to the New York State Education Law require that BMI and weight status group be included as part of the student's school health examination. For more information or to opt-out of having your child included as part of the Health Department's survey this year, please click heading above.
