The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as theyDorr.Strong.15 work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personal best.  

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 allowed the school to achieve high ratings 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 Parents
Joel & Gina Bolbach

"As the parents of two children who have attended Dorr Elementary over the last several years, we can tell you without a doubt that Dorr is a very special place.  As soon as you walk through the doors, a positive energy can be felt.  Administration, support staff, and teachers are all there because they WANT to be there.  Teachers go above and beyond by getting to know each individual student, which in turn helps them tailor learning activities that capitalize on each child’s strengths, weaknesses, and interests.  They make learning challenging as well as fun!  Academics aren’t the only focus though.  Through the Character Counts program, which focuses on traits such as respect, responsibility, acceptance, and perseverance, children are encouraged to be their best selves every day.  A strong sense of community is also felt as parents have ample opportunities to volunteer and are highly valued as partners in education.  We are very proud to be part of the Dorr family.  Dorr Elementary truly is a phenomenal place to be!"

The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA) selected DORR ELEMENTARY SCHOOL students, faculty and staff as recipients of the prestigious 2015 HALL OF FAME AWARD!  To help understand the significance of this award, it is important to know that OAESA awards this distinction to only 10 schools (of a possible 3000 in the state) each year!

To achieve this award, schools must go beyond the call of duty to get all excited about education!  The award application process is extensive and reviews a school's instructional system, student achievement, students  development, personnel, administration school management, and stakeholders.No question, the honor is much deserved!!
