my school is a very great and peaceful place that is surrounded by stereo types that constantly reflects nothing but bad reviews && i personally believe if we do receive the money we will put it to great use.

Dominguez hasnt been the greatest school, or we might not have the best school ground;best teachers;or administrators but the one thing we will always have is school pride and no one can take that away from us. Many people say that Dominguez is a bad school and that its in a bad community but in reality people just want to make us look bad but we kow are school is filled with administrators and teachers that truly care for us, and we arent going to let anyone think the work of us. Dominguez is a place of family and im enjoying the little time i have left there i will truly miss everything about Dominguez. -L.D.G Class of 2011!

School has really improved. Its much safer and it has gioven more resources to teachers and students. The best improvement is the library which has more books and the librarian has gotten more students involved in using the library's resources.

Dominguez High is a good school. The new principal Mr. Ramon has done a lot to improve Dominguez. We need more parent involvement. A PTSA (Parent, Teacher, Student Association) was started last year but very few Parents attends the meetings. Just a few keep trying to get the PTSA off the ground and they need help. If any parents from Dominguez read this please find out how you can join the membership.

I just love this school! We do need to work problems out so in order to do so the staff and students have come together this year to help meet the high standards. Teachers are excellent if students work with the teachers. The school offers classes which can help the student succeed after high for free. A big benefit for the students and parents.

I am a recent graduate of Dominguez High School and having had attended for all four years and having spent a great deal of time working/volunteering in the office, classrooms, and working closely with activities, I know that Dominguez has a lot to be wished for, but all the same it is a very productive and efficient school. Organization and following through may be the biggest lack in the high school, but administration, staff, teachers, and students are working collectively to solve much of the problems on campus. DHS proved to be a great school for my education and though I may not have had the best facilities to study and work in I definitely learned a lot. Having experienced a few weeks in an out-of-state university has given me a broader view of the world around me and also has been easy to transition to because of AP/Honors courses offered.

We have successful students that no one ever talks about. These children succeed in academics as well as sports.

Well for me D.H.S has been a very good school and the majority of the teachers are great. However, if the students don't change their attitudes then the school will be like it is today. Everyone wants a better school with a cleaner enviroment but how seek this if not any one is trying. Any ways the schools and students are doing ther best and their spirits are great. In addition, I also think that this school is awesome and can become even better.

I love the students and vast majority of the teaching staff at D.H.S. Every day has the possibility and probablility of exciting learning experiences for them and for me. As a consequence, I look forward to each day as though it will be the most exciting ever. I've taught now for over 20 years, and it never gets old for me nor, God willing, for my students either. 2008 will be an exhilirating challenge.

I am currently attending Dominguez High School and well, I see my school as an emblem to be proud of. The school is becoming better, there have been drastic changes to the school spirit and in the academic perspective. The people that complain about the administration and the teachers not doing anything to make our school better, well let me tell you this, if students want change they will have change with or without the administration's support. So in the end everything falls on not what the administration or school can do for us but what we can do for our school. Yes the school could hire better teachers, or offer more challenging courses but when they do offer them to us, we go right ahead and not value them. In conlusion, I would like to state that a child who wants to learn, will learn under any circumstance.

I graduated from d-high and I had some great teachers and some very bad ones. I just wish they could improve more and from the looks of it they are little by little.

I am a formal student at this school and can't wait to graduate and get out. I have been a strait A' and B' student but I see that this school has no potential. Teachers have no control over their overcrowded clases and many kids who go for learning just end up doing as their classmates. Also the racism is major I have heard so many ignorant comments of my culture that it amazes me the lack of knowledge between us ethnicitys.

Posted June 28, 2007

The School has a great atmosphere to it, although it lacks on school spirit. But it makes up for it in sports such as our football and basketball teams. The principle is doing his best but there could be definite improvements in the areas of counselors and the administration on helping out the students more, i mean thats why they wanted the job in the 1st place right? Well as a current student of Dominguez High School i feel it is necessary for the students to have sense of being actually helped out by the counselors and other staff members to gain the requirements to go on in life with they're education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
