About Us

Dear Visitor:

Welcome to the Dover Union Free School District.  As you drive up the driveway to the Middle/High 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 high school 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 in the best of times and in troubled times and motivates us to provide the best possible education for students of Dover.  Our commitment to work together for the benefit of everyone is woven into the rigorous curriculum, professional development, deep personal relationships, developing a fully inclusive school, our social and emotional development programs, scheduling practices and our extra-curricular activities.

We have defined an aggressive set of goals with high expectations for the year to come.  We want to get every student to achieve as much as they are capable of and ensure they are ready for college or career aspirations.  No one can achieve goals without help and teamwork.  We are in this together.

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.
