Curriculum Highlights
Dover High School students and staff have been recognized for their efforts throughout the year. The Lt. Governor of Delaware has honored Dover High School with his annual Parental Involvement Award. Our Advanced Placement teachers continue to update their curriculum through the College Board and we have all 20 Advanced Placement courses approved. We applaud our AP scholars (students receiving a minimum score of a 3 on five or more AP exams) as they have surely been instrumental in one of the best programs in the state and the best in Kent and Sussex Counties. We look forward to continuing support of all of our students taking AP courses. Our Career and Technical Education programs continue to expand in order to provide more of our students supports and connections to the school. Our CTE Pathways includes the HVAC, CNA, Culinary Arts, Food Preparation and Production, Comm. Tech, Business Education, Agriscience, CAD, Early Childhood, and Environmental/Natural Resources.
