  • 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!
