New Dover High School Opens Doors For Public

Posted:

DOVER, Del.- Thousands of residents gathered at the new Dover High School for the dedication ceremony.

It has been three years since ground first broke at the new Dover High School. There has been some controversy around the building in the past.One of the concerns centered on whether or not  the school would be finished on time. The school ended all speculations Saturday when it opened its doors to the public about a week before classes go back into session.

Seniors like Mitchell Clark and Christian Adkins were able to walk the halls of their new school.

"I'm just ecstatic," Clark said. "Everywhere I go; everything I see, I just smile."

"It's going to be a lot of good memories made here," Adkins said. "I'm excited."

They have been dreaming about what the new school would be like for years. Now, that dream is a reality.

"I've been seeing this building 8th grade," explained Clark. "I've been walking around talking about new dover high school and now that it's finally here it's very neat to see all the plans come together and it's good to know it came together on time."

"I've kind of watched the school grow," Adkins said. "My church is right down the street, so I've seen it been built up and it's just been,oh man; I'm ready. I'm ready. I'm ready for the school to get built so it's exciting to be here."

For the residents of Dover, they couldn't wait either. Thousands of people within the community made their way to see the school for themselves. Many excited about the finished product.

"I think the ones that are going here are going to be excited," said Maretta Purnell of Dover. "We're just looking for great things."

"I say it's long overdue," added Lola Bratten-Phillips also of Dover. "But when you're patient, good things come to those who wait"

From the new halls, to the cafeteria to the brand new gym, visitors say they are impressed.

"It's a big project for the community," Purnell said. "We're just looking forward to other great things in the community as well."

The opening marks a new beginning not just for the students but for the entire Dover community.

Classes for students at the new Dover High School beings August 21st.
