            About us:


The Dover Alternative Program is an approved special education program within the Dover School District. The program was established in 1991 to provide an alternative to the traditional academic setting for learners with challenges. Our program services students from neighboring school districts in addition to Dover.

The faculty at The Dover Alternative Program consists of four academic teachers, a counselor, a paraeducator, a licensed drug and alcohol counselor, an expressive therapist intern, an administrative assistant, and the Dean/Director. Our staff assists students with their social/emotional, behavioral, and academic needs throughout the school day. Our teachers engage students through innovative instruction within academic classes. Our counseling staff provides individual/group counseling and family support. In addition, we work closely with community based agencies to enhance student success in all areas of functioning.
If you would like more information about our program, feel free to contact our Dean, Dr. Joan Breault, EdD, by phone at 603-516-6058 or email at
