The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as they work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personalbest.  

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 consistently allowed the school to achieve an "Excellent" rating 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 parent
Brian and Holly Wahl

We love everything about Dorr Elementary! The teachers and administration are completely student-focused, with one common goal - - meeting and exceeding the needs of each and every student. This is done in numerous ways to address the unique needs of every child. It is abundantly apparent that the teachers enjoy working with children, and truly care about every single one of them. There is such positive energy in every classroom, and parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged! We can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.


Principal's Weekly Message


exceptional - without exception 



As we end the “royal” 2013-14 school year, I would like to thank you for allowing me to be a part of the “magic” at the Dorr Castle!  I have enjoyed working with the wonderful “royal subjects” and their families and having the opportunity to work with the amazing, child-centered Dorr staff!  It has truly been a year that has led to “Happily Ever After!”

 We have moved through the school year quickly and our royal subjects are looking forward to the summer break.  Please take time to enjoy your families and have a safe and relaxing summer!
Dorr Elementary:  We are Wild about Dorr Elementary!

As we look forward to the 2014-15 school year and the adventures that it will bring with our new theme (We are Wild about Dorr Elementary!), we will look forward to welcoming back our students to the Dorr Elementary Kingdom at our Class List posting day on Friday, August 15th from 1-3 p. m.  Please join us to find out your new teacher and your new bus route.  We would then love for you to join us at our Open House on Wednesday, August 20th from 6-7 p. m. where we will begin our festivities in the Dorr Gymnasium at 6 p. m.  The first day of classes for grades 1-5 and our male Kindergarten students will begin on Thursday, August 21st.  The first day for female Kindergarten students will be Friday, August 22nd while the Kindergarten boys will join us again on Monday, August 25th.  We look forward to welcoming you back to the Dorr Elementary Animal Kingdom!
