  • School is what you make it. It is your school so however, "your" school is can be an indication of how "your " attitude is towards it. How about suggesting some solutions rather than complaining and making things worse. These can be some of the best years or some of the worst years. Try spell check and at least look like you know what you are talking about first, so at least you can be taken seriously. Imagine you had to be responsible for the well being and education of over 1000 young minds, you probably can't or don't want to. You can't determine what happens around you or to you, but you can determine how you will respond and what happens inside yourself. It's starts with you, so what now? I dare you to be better, and when you get better help someone else be better, then we'll see how Dover High ends up. Who's up for the challenge???

  • The school is pretty awesome! I mean its better than campus community (a person who goes their who said that) and it was better than laural and seaford. I love the school and yes their at bullies and mean people but if you stay with your own crowd you can have a fun time, since I stay with my incrowd (and I go with a couple geeks,artsies, and regular ppl.) Anyway its pretty fun (except for the bullies) but I get passed them. It's fun if you have something to do.
