The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as they work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personalbest.  

Although the Ohio Department of Education's (ODE) system for rating schools is changing, it is important to reflect that for the past several years, the efforts of Dorr Elementary School students have consistently allowed the school to achieve an "Excellent" rating from the ODE.   

We are very proud of the entire Dorr family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception!

Testimonial from Dorr parent
Brian and Holly Wahl

We love everything about Dorr Elementary! The teachers and administration are completely student-focused, with one common goal - - meeting and exceeding the needs of each and every student. This is done in numerous ways to address the unique needs of every child. It is abundantly apparent that the teachers enjoy working with children, and truly care about every single one of them. There is such positive energy in every classroom, and parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged! We can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.


Principal's Weekly Message


exceptional - without exception 


Physical Education vs “Gym”
In previous years, we usually thought of students going to “gym” class. In today’s world of education, this class is so much more than that. Our students go to “Physical Education” class twice a week to learn many skills that emphasize healthy living, movement, and choices that can last a lifetime. It is also an opportunity to teach students about good sportsmanship, following rules, cooperative play, and how to offer appropriate feedback.We are fortunate to have Mr. Kerns, our Dorr Physical Education Teacher, working with our students to educate them on healthy choices that will positively impact their overall health and well-being. This in turn, supports better learning and a student who is alert and “ready and willing” to learn.Because there is specific instruction and students learning, we are moving from just identifying it as “gym” class, which is “where” the class is located, to “physical education” which emphasized the fact that students are learning better ways to take care of their overall health. This is done through pre-assessments and post-assessments to determine growth in a number of areas.In order to support this transition, please have your child share all the wonderful things that they are learning in “physical education” class which takes place in the gym. We appreciate your support as we move to educate our students in healthy living.
