Supports LD students: Strongly disagree


- a
This school hardly teaches us anything, and they tend to give us bad grades because they give us a test, and since they haven't taught us anything, we tend to fail.

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
In Doolen's case, it more of a students run the school and teachers aren't in charge sort of thing.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Most of the students show hardly any respect, integrity, or any compassion.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
Most of the teachers at this school are not effective at all. There are only two teachers that I have met at Doolen who are good. Mrs. Bartz and Mr. Williams.

Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
They hardly ever give us homework and since the teachers hardly give us any homework, most of us tend to fail.


Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
I get bullied and I have brought this up with the staff and principal, and no one does anything about it.



- a
The leadership at this school is unresponsive, the teachers seem miserable, the student do not get the support or resources they need and are unengaged as a result. TUSD needs to be split apart into smaller districts so that there is better oversight and management and the students are not forgotten in the politics. The bottom line at this point is that Doolen is not a safe place for your children. Kids run the school not the adults, bullying eachother, attacking eachother with shanks made and school and lighting eachother on fire with mini bombs made at school. Beware, and keep your child safe by staying away from this school.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
The teachers are undersupported and under valued at this school and it shows in their teaching. The classrooms are out of control as is the campus and it shows in the student's tests scores and grades. TUSD needs to clean house at the leadership level, not only at this school but at 1010 as a whole. This school and TUSD are broken beyond repair.


Amount of homework: no rating


- a
Everything is inconsistent at this school including the rate of homework. Some teachers dont seem to teach, they just give homework while others are busy texting in class and don't assign anything.



- a
I am a parent of an eighth grader in Doolen GATE. If your child tests into GATE, visit some classes at Doolen. I think you will like what you see, and your child will likely enjoy their middle school experience. The GATE program is the best option within TUSD.
