Welcome to Dover East Elementary!
East Elementary School is recognized as a Hall of Fame school in the state of Ohio. We are proud of the solid tradition of academic success at our school as well as the experiences we are able to provide our students during these very formative and foundational years of their educational careers.
Our school is the home to over 500 students in grades kindergarten through five. A staff of approximately 50 professionals provides learning, educational support, and various services through blending experience and enthusiasm to best meet the needs of our students. To note, we have several enhancement programs that offer supplemental help in reading, math, speech, and language skills. Students at East Elementary also have the opportunity to participate in an array of additional curriculum selections such as music, cultural arts, and recreational activities. Band and orchestra programming, key components to our district music department, are available to our fifth grade students for exploration and study as they begin the process of interest discovery during their last year of elementary school.
Because we understand the importance of educating the "whole child," as evidenced by the variety of options students are offered during their time here, we likewise provide extracurricular opportunities including student council, the science fair, "Taking it to the Schools," and the Accelerated Reader program; moreover, athletic opportunities are available to our students in various forms within our local community.
In addition to a top-notch, hard-working staff and our student-centered programming, East Elementary's PTG and community volunteers are an extremely valuable support and resource to our students and our school community. Their dedication is an important contributor to the positive experience facilitated for every student at East Elementary.
We believe East Elementary School is a great place to be, and together with our school community and local community, our students are given an environment in which they can grow and learn each and every day!
