Welcome to Dover South School
At South School, we take pride in providing a safe, positive and welcoming environment where all children have the opportunity to succeed. We have a dedicated staff that puts the needs of students at the forefront of all they do.
We are looking forward to another exciting school year. Teachers and staff have been working hard to create a fun, safe, and positive learning environment for all students.
During the 2021/2022 school year, we were able to add a sensory room thanks to the Rainbow Connection’s help. We are also adding a sensory path that will be a great help to many students. Our PTG was able to purchase new mulch, a much safer, age appropriate slide and hopefully soon we will be fencing in our small playground.
South School’s preschool maintained a 5-Star rating which is the highest rating possible through the “Step Up to Quality” rating system. We are very proud of the preschool program we offer for our students. It is a high quality preschool setting that gives our youngest students the foundational skills they need to be successful as they transition to kindergarten and beyond.
We plan to continue many of our South School traditions. Our Ice Cream Social is always a huge success. Our PTG serves ice cream and the Steel band and Jazz band provide the entertainment. Field day is another fun activity that our students enjoy.
Teaching our students to show kindness and to give back is an important part of what we do at South School. South School participates in a variety of activities to benefit several charities. Rainbow connection and Share-A-Christmas are just a few.
We are looking forward to another successful and exciting school year in 2022-2023.
