Exemplary Programs
The staff at Dover Air Base Middle School is proud to serve the area's military community.

In 2013-14, the school was recognized by thebestschools.org as one of the 50 best middle schools in the nation. In 2012, the school was also recognized for its outstanding educational program, as we were a State of Delaware Recognition School for excellence in academics.

Dover Air Base Middle is proud to have teachers who are able to take students to their full potential academically, socially, and emotionally.

Dover Air Base Middle School is proud to be a part of the Governor’s World Language Program, which allows up to 50 of our students to learn Spanish throughout the year. The program is in a hybrid format, with most of the course experienced online through Middlebury, our online learning partner. In addition, a language teacher meets with the students on a weekly basis to provide the conversational learning component of the program.

Curriculum Highlights
The CR School District has established a curriculum development process which supports alignment to the existing Common Core Standards and Grade Level Expectations. This process involves teacher and administrative input through a Curriculum Cabinet and Council process. The preparation of our students as life-long learners in a global community of the 21st century society is the unifying objective of this process. The curriculum not only identifies essential knowledge and skills, but also supports students’ development in problem solving, as well as gathering and using resources that will enable them to succeed. Each content area (English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, World Languages, Physical Education, Health, and Family and Consumer Sciences) also has an Assessment of Learning and Assessment for Learning component which offers immediate feedback and data driven assessments aligned with state standards.
