    "The caring, supportive and outgoing environment at Dover School brings out the best in its students. Dover School encourages students to exceed expectations in both their academic performance as well as their civic responsibility in being a member of the Dover community. This is an amazing school and you can sense that as soon as you step inside its doors."

    "Our expectations were high and were exceeded! We had read the reviews, noted the exceptional test scores, did a site visit and spoke other parents. We found out quickly that all we had heard and seen was absolutely true.The Dover School is an exceptional place. The people at The Dover School from the principal, teachers, students, volunteers and parents were all so welcoming, kind and helpful.They made the transition for our son and our family so easy. The academics are rigorous but the kids all rise to the challenge with hard work, support from the staff and help from each other. Our son has made huge leaps forward and we are impressed every day by what he is learning and how much he enjoys it! Unfortunately, there is no way to get the "spirit" of The Dover School to show through in a written review. If you are considering a move to the area I highly recommend stopping in. Meet with the principal, Mr. Anton and take a tour. Come to School Sing on a Friday morning have coffee and desserts with other parents and see it for yourself."

    "When you walk through the door you truly understand the reason why Dover School is rated second best small public school in Vermont. You are Always greeted with warm and caring consideration. My child has excelled at this school with teacher accommodation to her individualized learning curve. One thing the school does not have is a special education dept. When I asked how this could be, the principal told me that all of his teachers are highly trained in differentiated instruction and if the teacher can provide special educational needs in the classroom , then there is no need for a special educator. This school is small, quaint, and sincere in its strive for excellence. They have a great after school program, a new 5-week summer program, music, art, PE, health, technology and a school counselor on-site. They do not have a full time school nurse and that is my only criticism. Otherwise, Dover school is superior. The staff is high caliber, the students are kind to one another and the parents work together to host various events throughout the year. Dover School is a community school with an eye toward our children's future."

    "Couldn't be better. The principal and teachers are highly respected by students and parents alike. A small country school with all the choices of a larger city school. During the winter one afternoon a week is devoted to the students going skiing or snowboarding at Mount Snow. Or if theyu choose other outdoor or indoor activities."

    "The Dover School is one of a kind. The principal, Bill Anton, has created an environment where positive attitudes and flexibility are resulting in motivated students who enjoy going to school and learning. The teachers don't teach to standardized tests, but the test scores are the proof that his formula works. Technology is integrated into the classwork, making students more tech savvy while giving them the flexibility to work at their own pace on material customized to their interests. Our son attends Dover School and is a national snowboard competitor with an intense training schedule required during the winter. Not only did the Dover School work to accommodate his special needs, but his teacher (Michael Degnon) made sure to keep an eye on his ability to do the after hours work needed to keep pace with his peers throughout his competitive season. From the principal greeting all students with a smile and a cheer at the door each day to the unique tradition of Friday morning sing with students and their parents each week, The Dover School is one of a kind and treats each of their students as a one of a kind community asset worthy of the time investment."
