Absolutely love Dover Shores! I have been so lucky to get great teachers who have pushed my child to excel. Although the school buildings are not the newest, they are set up in a manner which are safer for the children. They have an excellent swim program also!

I went to this school for all of my elementary years. I was very sad to leave. All the teachers are amazing. They were super nice and they would encourage you and care for you. Everyone would be happy to attend this school. This school is definetly a five star school.

I attended this school for all six years of elementary, and I loved it! The teachers are so awesome. They actually make it challenging while not cramming it in at once. It was sad to leave after being there for six years. By far, the best school I've been too yet. The school used to be on the edge, but ...  Read more

My daughter is very shy and she pleaded with me to help her ...  Read more
