Parent, Guardian & Caretaker Information

A major component of Dover-Sherborn's High School philosophy is helping adolescents achieve independence and maturity. Parents are urged to encourage and to guide their children in the process of problem solving and decision-making around personal, social and academic issues. The classroom teacher is the primary resource for providing academic help and direction. High school students are encouraged to approach their teachers for such support. The school counselor is also an important resource in helping students deal with personal and social adjustment issues. We suggest that parents encourage their sons/daughters to first seek out appropriate supports within the school before contacting the school for a conference.
