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.

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 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.

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.

Well I [attended] Dominguez HS for a few years, and I had an awesome time. By reading the Comments of parents of this HS, I am not satisfied, If the school has problems is because of the students we all decide what we want and how we want it. Most parents say the school is bad, too much kids, well get your child out. It depends in how your child acts and who he is. I went there for 3 years and never ever I had a problem with the students nor the teachers. Its all up to us.

Dominguez was also my high school over 20 years ago. My daughter and son attend Dominguez. Though it offers AP and Honors courses, which my children are enrolled in, they find it difficult to concentrate because of the atmosphere of the school. My efforts to contact the principla or vice-principal are null and void. If you go to the school in person, same thing. It is so sad. I've tried to email the principal and Superintendent but emails failed... I am very unsatisfied with Dominguez, and I would not recommend this school to any parent.

There should be more parent involvement at this school. Teachers are not very helpful nor are the councelors. I understand that people have bad days but one of the councelors spoke to me in a tone of voice I did not appreciate insinuating that I was wrong and she was correct. Students are pushed around by some staff members and only listen to us when parents get involved. We do not get enough respect nor credibility until our parents are standing there in person listening in on the conversation that I could have had with the councelor in private trying to arrange my class schedules to my needs that are required to get into college.

Dominguez HS is known for it's athletic program. I am pleased that the coaches, along with the Administrators, counselors and teachers are promoting and adhering to academic excellence, as well. There are challenges, such as gang violence in the surrounding areas, which I believe interferes with student progress. My children feel safe on campus and I feel safe with them being there. I am concerned with the safety of students on the street. We are not alone is this area, all neighborhoods are experiencing an increase in violence...I'm mentioning this to bring attention to the fact that academic survival will depend upon our awareness and our fight for proper programs and activities that will help gear our children away from the negativity. What good is it for a school to meet it's API if it's students lives are in jeopardy?

I am a former student of Dominguez. I have mixed feelings about this school. There are very, very good teachers mixed in with very bad ones. I had a 3.8GPA and ended up dropping out my senior year and finishing at a continuation. The reason for that, was because of the environment I got involved with. If you are a good parent, willing to push your child then you'll be a success at Dominguez. If you don't get involved in your child's life then it is easy to go astray at Dominguez. The city's notorious reputation is there for a reason, some of it is true, but its really exaggerated. Once again if your child is willing to excell there are excellent teachers available to them. Dominguez needs to work a lot on its administrative leadership, councelors, but it is improving significantly.
