Dover Area Intermediate School
It is with great pleasure that I serve the Dover Community as the Principal of the Intermediate School (IS). The Intermediate School has a long history of academic excellence. This excellence is attributed to the highly qualified staff employed at the IS and the rigorous and relevant curriculum designed to meet the educational needs of the diverse population of students.
While the primary focus for all educational institutions is academia, the IS goes beyond the classroom walls to educate the “whole” child. It is during the middle school years that children experience greater physiological, psychological and social re-orientation than during any other time of their lives. By providing students the opportunity to explore various clubs, join athletic teams, participate in various musical ensembles and participate in an advisory group, students are afforded opportunities to develop skills and experiences to assist them through their intermediate school years. Dover Intermediate School students are not only growing academically, but are learning lifelong skills.
Students, parents, counselors, support staff, and administrators working in tandem, will continue to foster the academic excellence that permeates though the Dover School District.
