A Message from the Principal
Welcome to the Dover Middle School!
Dover Middle School is a student-centered place committed to the educational growth and success of each of our students. Housing grades 6, 7, and 8, we realize the incredible responsibility it is to educate the middle school age child and strive to meet the needs of every student with us as they navigate through this particularly important and formative stage of educational and personal development.
With our building theme of GRIT (G: Gumption, R: Resilience, I: Initiative, and T: Tenacity), students are encouraged during their time at Dover Middle School to work hard and to give 100% to all that they do; in doing so, we hope that students learn and, ultimately, value a lesson that will benefit them all of their lives: with GRIT, anything is possible!
Additionally, Dover Middle School provides a wealth of learning opportunities for students. Those opportunities include a range of language arts and math courses for every type of learner, high school credit options for qualifying students, and elective courses such as Project Lead the Way. For those interested in music, our band, choir, and orchestra programs provide an excellent foundation for students to explore their musical talents.
Not only do we provide academic and music outlets for our students, Dover Middle School also offers a variety of sports for our athletically-interested students, Power of the Pen for those who like to write, and our DOCK program (Dover Caring Kids) for all students who know and understand the power of giving back to one’s community.
We believe Dover Middle School is a great place to be and know that together with our staff, our students, our families, and our community, it will continue to be just that as we evolve in the world of 21st century learning with the priority of creating lifelong learners!
