    "There were a lot of opportunities for me to pursue whatever activities and classes I wanted. The atmosphere wasn't always the best, but in higher classes, the other students were hard working and focused."

    "I truly enjoyed my time at Dover High School. I made tons of friendships with students and faculty that will last a lifetime. They will also be a powerful network in my future career endeavors. I was involved in the National Honor Society, AFJROTC, Young Men's Club, Tennis, Student Newspaper etc. These opportunities allowed me to grow as an individual and introduced me to new and profound experiences. In my academics, I was ranked near the top-fifty of my class and I took rigorous honors and advanced placement courses. These courses allowed me to learn the value of hard work and provided me the opportunity to earn college credit. My time at Dover High School was an integral opportunity within my educational experience that I will cherish forever."

    "It's apparent that administration thought it was a bright idea for peer teaching (where the kids teach each other) that is NOT a good idea. Doing power point projects and posters doesn't help the students learn anything when half the kids don't turn them in on time. Dover High Students have a culture of praising violence. Gangs, murder, and guns are openly talked about. Teachers are cursed at daily, spoken ill of and or screamed at. There are a few white children that have said racist comments about some of the black children regarding their looks and their names. They also called them by rather offensive and derogatory words. Several white kids wear the confederate flag and I've spoken about how it makes me feel uncomfortable and offended seeing people where that but I was told it's their freedom of speech. I personally feel these issue should be addressed. Overall Dover High School has their problems and faults but they surely aren t as bad as they get."

    "Dover High has a reputation of excessive fighting among students, which is kind of true but they aren't everyday. There's just a day or a week every now and then when there are a lot of fights all at once and then they turn off the Wi-Fi or make it so we can't leave class without a pass at all. I've had experiences with disorganized or unhelpful counselors or unsupportive and rude staff, but the vast majority of the student body is a population of kind people or kids who just want to get their stuff done and be left alone. And most of the staff is welcoming, helpful, and overall good. The AP program is exceptional and our school offers classes and programs you wouldn't see at most other schools. Dover High is a proud school and has at least a little reason to be."
