"Welcome to Dover Air Base Middle School! I know that this is an environment in which your student will thrive. DABM is a small school, where you will find a dedicated and caring staff serving predominantly children of military personnel. We look forward to building a partnership with parents so that we can ensure your child reaches his or her full potential not only academically, but also socially and emotionally." - David W. Santore, Ed. D.
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and non-public elementary, middle, and high schools where students achieve at very high levels and/or where the achievement gap is narrowing. The Program sets a standard of excellence for all schools striving for the highest level of achievement. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program is part of a larger U. S. Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about best school leadership and teaching practices. Each year since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education has sought out schools where students attain and maintain high academic goals, including those that beat the odds.
