DOE Profile

Central Middle School (CMS) is a classic school building that is situated on approximately 30 acres of land in the center of Dover, DE. When the original building, with its monumental stairway and cupola was erected in 1923, it housed all of the students in the Dover School District from grades one through twelve. For many years, students graduated from high school on picturesque stone entry. Major renovations to the building to upgrade academic and elective spaces were completed in 1985 and 2004. In 2009, the Central School Campus opened a newly renovated auditorium and a full-size gymnasium.

In September 2023, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students who formerly attended William Henry Middle School and Central Middle School moved to the new Dover Middle School Campus, School of Excellence or School or Innovation.

The Central School Campus will eventually become an elementary school to house students in grades 1-5.  Renovations have begun at the school and will continue throughout the next year.
