    "Dover Middle School is not a horrible school, like people think it is. Yeah, there are kids who slack off and kids who are violent. You just have to make sure your kids get in to the right group. I am an 8th grade student at DMS and I have tons of fun here. Out of the two years I have been year I have had no one trying to start problems with me and my grades aren't so bad. So no Dover Middle is not a bad school, it's actually alot of fun with many great people. As long as you don't get yourself into problems you'll enjoy it your middlw school years."

    "Although the school offers a program for gifted students, but I would not call it a gifted and talented program offered at other schools. Students are not given tons of homework as I was told the leaders of the school do not believe that homework should be given everyday. The school also does not address the need of students who are not 'gifted'. The discipline is not being enforced as it used to be under the previous principal. My son tells me that the principal 'just sits in his office'. Based on the results, NJASK scores went down again since last year. The scores for Language Arts went up. However, Language Arts includes Reading and Writing. A student could be better in one area than the other; therefore, the whole Language Arts score can be raised."

    "As a student of Dover Middle School, I don't know what everyone else is talking about. This schools gifted and talented program for eighth graders is very rigorous with tons of homework each night. Personally, I am a straight-A student and received a 300(maximum score) in the language arts section of the NJASK last year and let me remind you that the whole state took this test so it can't be said that the test Dover took was easier that everyone elses. Yes, there are students that slack off, but that happens everywhere and for students that will actually work hard, this school gives them what they need. Discipline is now being enforced a great deal as well."
