Environment
The Capital School District is in the city of Dover, which is located in Central Delaware in Kent County and is the capital of Delaware. Dover is approximately 90 miles south of Philadelphia, PA, and 90 miles east of Washington, DC. While its population is significantly less than that of Wilmington, Delaware, Dover encompasses a larger area than any other city on the Delmarva Peninsula. In contrast to most major cities in the Northeast United States, Dover is continuing to grow economically, in population, and in land area. The City has an estimated population of 34,120 and a total land area of approximately 26,000 acres. Today Dover is a thriving community. Residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional development continues at a stable rate.
