Project History

The Dover High School and Regional Career Technical Center (CTC) currently employs approximately 192 teachers (both full and part time) with a student population of around 1,300.  

The current facility, located on 44 acres which include parking lots and athletic fields, is approximately 222,000 square feet, 27,000 of which are dedicated to the CTC.
