Read what parents are saying about Dover Elementary School
This school is phenomenal, I cannot say this enough times. They do what they can with their curriculum (which is controlled by the school board, so if you ever read a review where a parent complains about what a child learns at the school, that's not on any one school/teacher's shoulders), and are compassionate educators committed to not only the educational experience of their students but also the emotional and personal growth of their students. They are always looking for ways to support the students, and even adopted a two recess policy within the first year our kids were there.

Overall our experiences have been really positive. There is a warm happy atmosphere in the school. Students, staff and the parents I see all have smiles and positive attitudes concerning the school. My child loves going to Dover and she is getting a challenging education.

The faculty and staff work tirelessly to give our kids the best experience possible. They really do a great job.

We love the teachers, administration, and special needs support staff at Dover. I can't imagine sending my kids anywhere else.

My son attends kindergarten at Dover Elementary. He likes going to school because of kids of the same age group in his class. I hate the school. Academics are not challenging at all. In fact, it seems a repeat of what my son did in preschool as a 3 and 4 year old. Many of the staff is unprofessional, others seem clueless about different things. I also do not see the point of having kindergarten, or even 1st graders wear white shirts as part of the uniform. These shirts easily stain, and parents have to keep buying new ones. I will add this too..The majority of the school is mexican. It seems as though other demographics take a back seat in all matters. At any given time at the school Spanish is being spoken between staff and students. I believe this sends a wrong message to students. Not everyone speaks spanish. The school also seems very overcrowded. It is chaotic during morning drop off times, and really chaotic during evening pick up times. No order whatsoever! I had heard that Richardson had really good schools. Obviously this is not one of them. If you are considering moving to Richardson, I would advise against moving within Dover's attendance zone.
