About the Department
Language and communication are the heart of the human experience. Dover High School recognizes that we must educate students who are equipped linguistically and culturally to communicate successfully in a pluralistic American society and abroad. Therefore, it is our goal to provide all of our students with the opportunity to develop and maintain proficiency in English and at least one other language. To meet this challenge, we offer a variety of world languages and provide a comprehensive ESL program for our English language learners. In addition to our four year programs of Spanish, French, German and Italian, we have developed an extensive program in Spanish Language Arts to improve and strengthen the language skills of students who are native speakers of the Spanish language.
In addition to our regular classes, our department provides specialized coursework for students of the following academies:
