    Dover AFB Middle School is a a 6 through 8 school with approximately 200 students. In addition to standard academics required by the state, the school offers football, field hockey, basketball, soccer, softball, and track and field.

    Because these students are primarily the children of active military personnel, the school provides a club called Families Dealing with Separation or Deployment (FDSD). This program offers support for students who have one or more parents who are or have been or will be deployed away from home as part of their military service. The club meets during the school day every other Wednesday and has guest speakers on topics relevant to these students, as well as fun, team-building activities such as robotics. The program is aided by the Family Readiness Center from Dover A.F.B.

    A 4-H program is open to any student of the district between the ages of 5 and 18.
