My child has attended Dover Shores since Kindergarten and we were so very fortunate to have a new teacher for his beginning year. She is FANTASTIC. Dr. Hart consistently shows his care and support as do most of the faculty staff and PTA. However the cafe workers are disgraceful reducing children to tears or just plain ignoring them when they need help (I have witnessed). Many don't even have a minor grasp of English which is ridiculous. In addition there are several teachers who need to reevaluate why they are teaching at all because their attitude and actions toward elementary school children is cruel nasty and permanently damaging. When my family moved to Dover Manor we looked forward to my son having a great experience at Dover Shores but the demographics have changed so much that it is now a Title I school filled with behavior issues bullies and severe learning deficiencies that force teachers to be police rather than instructors. It is unfair that students who are ready for the rigors and challenges of more in-depth or demanding assignments must be sidelined while a teacher's time is focused on behavioral problems or deficient intelligence.FIND A REAL DEAN!
