As a teacher that is also an alumni of this school, I am proud to be a Dora Bulldog. Our teachers, administration, and students are very caring of one another. The students are up to any challenge academically and athletically. Our students also have a great mindset for community service with all of the different clubs we have. Dora High School is a great place to grow and learn.

I am a alumni of Dora High School. Both my children are graduates. Graduated 2005 and 2009. The academics could use a great improvement. My children were not prepared for college at all. The academics did not prepare them for ACT's. I had several problems with some teachers being verbally out of line. There are some younger teachers there that try to make a difference, Yet the older teachers who have been there since I graduated in 84 seem to be burned out as evidenced by their attitude and teaching. My children told me several times how class involved watching movies. We are trying to move out of the school district so our 15 year old can get a better education.

We also moved from another district this past year and I am very shocked at the lack of concern from staff and teachers,no communication to the parents.I never know about important dates or meetings.The elem. and middle school have a phone system where they let parents know about important things, so why can't the high school do the same?They could also have a website..(not alumni)just a couple suggestions.I am also worried about my childs saftey..One outside security camera is all that works .That concerns me.

As a proud alumni of Dora High School, I highly rate this school. My parents still live in the community, and my family still thrives with school spirit. I am an educator in the school system, but not the Dora/Sumiton community. I want to congratulate you on your high AHSGE scores. I am very impressed. I love the sense of pride and community of the school. Keep working hard teachers and students!

We moved from another district and we have been very disapointed in the academic level. Safety is also an issue on campus.The staff discourage parent involvement and the teachers will not communicate with the parents. The admin seems to be very nice though. I know the school has gone under some major employee changes so we are hoping it will get better.

I now have my 2nd child attending this school, i have never had any major problems. My daughter graduated 2003 and my son is now attending his 2nd year. They've never had any major concerns for their safety. On a couple of occasions safety issues came up but, was quickly nipped in the bud.No academic problems either. Great job dora high staff!

After attending a local private school for a few years, we decided to send our child to Dora High and have never regretted that decision. She was much happier there. The teachers were caring and helpful. The discipline and academics were better, also. Many parents expressed their concern about safety, but she was just as safe there as she had been at other schools. Everyone was friendly and accepted her for who she was.
