Dover-Sherborn High School seeks to prepare students to become lifelong learners. The school promotes academic and social skill development and fosters student self-sufficiency. Students are encouraged to become actively involved in the learning process so that they may adapt to the diverse demands of their post-graduate experiences. To this end, Dover-Sherborn seeks to create a community where learning occurs primarily within a formal academic curriculum supplemented by a variety of co-and extra-curricular experiences.
This community provides students with interactive opportunities that ask them to evaluate both themselves and the world around them. Such inquiry actively involves students and asks them to be introspective and extrospective, to think and to communicate. As individuals they discover their talents and test their limits; as members of a community they begin to understand a citizen’s responsibilities. Consequently, they learn to find the balance necessary to allow them to thrive as individuals, as members of the school community, and as citizens in a global society.

The curriculum and program of studies promote independence of thought and action. It is our goal to help students to develop an individual voice and perspective.

We believe that reading and writing are the means by which young adults begin to define themselves in the world. Through language they learn to formulate questions, test beliefs, establish connections and take a stand. Our curriculum emphasizes the joys of reading and writing, the value of inquiry and reflection, and the importance of excellence in any endeavor.
If homework assignments are not accessible online for any reason, students will still be responsible as they should have obtained the assignments during class. Please be sure to get your assignments before you leave class!
