Like most families, we moved to the Dover Sherborn School district for the schools. We have now come to find that school ratings are much more reflective of high schools, and rely on SAT scores, graduation rates, and college acceptances. The Dover-Sherborn school district woefully neglects their elementary school children. The elementary school in Sherborn is not even safe, and this is according to a multitude of town officials. It has a single access and egress road, meaning that the children get “trapped” at school when there is a snow storm or a fallen tree. This happened twice last year alone. It doesn’t take much of imagination to think about other emergencies where students might get trapped. The town, school committees, and superintendent have known about this situation for more than a decade, and they have not acted. If you cannot trust a school with the basic safety of children, how can you trust them with your child’s education?
