Dover Elementary School

Welcome to the Dover Elementary School website, and thank you for taking the time to explore our various offerings.  I hope that you find the site helpful and informative.

I am excited to share this journey with you and with your child(ren).  I look forward to this challenge, to providing a safe and friendly environment where children are comfortable exploring and discovering things on their own with the guidance of some of the best professionals in the business.  I hope that the years your child spends here are healthy and happy ones.

I hope that in these formative years your child learns respect of others and their viewpoints.  I hope they open their minds to the world around them and that they leave here with ways to face this complex and sometimes confusing world.  Our faculty and staff provide a challenging curriculum, a warm and supportive learning environment, and many enriching experiences for all of our students.  Many unique and rewarding field trips in all grade levels enhance what students learn in the classroom.

The following links will take you to specific areas of interest if you so choose:


Please feel free to call any time. I value your feedback about how we can do a better job of educating our students and your children for a brighter tomorrow!
