Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2023-24 school year at Dovercourt School. It is an absolute privilege to be a part of the students, staff, parents and community members of Dovercourt. 

Dovercourt School is an inviting and inclusive school community where diversity is celebrated and valued, and where relationships are nurtured. Emphasis is placed on creating an environment where students feel capable and connected and develop the skills required to be contributing members, both in our school and in the broader community.  All members of Dovercourt adhere to our school promise; We lead with KIND hearts, FIERCE minds and BRAVE spirits. 

At Dovercourt School we believe that educating students is a collective responsibility, shared by students and their families, school staff and the entire community. Through a collaborative approach in working together with you as partners, we will maximize the potential of all students. We are committed to providing a positive learning environment that will foster and support high academic and behavioural expectations, capitalizing on the value of strong relationships.

In an effort to ensure all students are successful, faculty will use a differentiated approach to teaching. This approach includes thoughtful planning, strategic assessment of learning outcomes, and targeted, flexible instruction. Classroom teaching will be a blend of whole class, group, partner, and individual instruction. Students will be provided with multiple opportunities to make sense of ideas and information, practice new skills, and to demonstrate what they have learned.

Communication is key at Dovercourt School and is a shared responsibility.  Students use agendas as well as updates and information will be communicated mainly through the use of SchoolZone. Your questions, concerns, observations and feedback are welcomed and embraced so please connect with us by phone or email at any time.  It is best to make an appointment for conversations that may require more dedicated time.

Dovercourt School continues to be a welcoming place where everyone wants to be and it is because of great teamwork that this is possible.  We look forward to another wonderful year of growing and learning.
