  • Small schools provide a uniquely individual educational experience. The learner's limits and potential are the driving force behind the curriculum offerings.
  • The interests of the student body provide the emphasis.
  • The needs of the classroom community turn into the strengths.
  • The non-sectarian format allows for not simply a tolerance of differences but rather a celebration.
  • Our students are encouraged to look at a larger frame and we can do that because we are a small school.

The school has a very good reputation and all the students score really high on the state tests. The teachers are very passionate in helping each student do well. I can call anytime and get a progress report on my children. I highly recommend Dove Day School!

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
