It's an OK school some of the teachers care about the students others are just there for a check if your child gets bullied on the regular don't bother telling the Deans they will do nothing about it sometimes the Deans will do something about students being bullied sometimes they won't and this school is known for having fights. And you have to pass the Cahsee test in order to graduate even if you meet the graduation requirements you still have to pass the Chasee test .bodajai

Dorsey has the potential to be an excellent school but student numbers are way down and the District builds a new gym and is remodeling the old gym while textbooks are so old Obama isn't in the history books and computers in classrooms.are obsolete and few and far between. The students would be better served if the money was put into upgrading the pitiful library and providing programs to help students who are not on grade level in math, reading, or writing which unfortunately is the majority of the school. Sadly until the District puts academics before athletics and puts money into helping students with academic deficits, the test scores will continue to reflect this. The school administration is not to blame. They are doing a good job and can only work with what the District gives them. - A teacher

Compared to North Torrance High school, Dorsey cares more about my son. My son coaches make sure his classes are fit for him, and the teachers are available to the parents. The teachers show concern about my son and that he is prepared for college. Thank you Dorsey Staff. Brenda Brown

Susan Miller Dorsey High School is a very beautiful campus with a history of distinguished alumni. Call on the alums to remind the present student body of the proud traditions, high priority of academics, showcase of the arts and champions developed through athletics.dj

I am in leadership at Dorsey high school and the students are committed, the teachers are fabulous and the campus is beautiful. It's under renovation to be finished in 2010. Dorsey family is a great one to be a part of. Dorsey Pride!
