How can 10 students out of 300 pass the math portion of the test How can the Asst. prinicpal place blame on the students when it clear that its a teaching issue. How can students have a high average in the class but fail the test?

Dougherty High is not only a wonderful school; but, it is a school full of Trojan pride and dedicated teachers. Dougherty has a rich history and was built on integrity and ethics. I can appreciate the fact that these same standards apply today and the students are willing to carry the torch.

I love Dougherty! It's plain and simple I love Dougherty.I don't care about these nay Sayers,Dougherty is a place of pride.It teaches students and parents the sense of commitment.Of courses, to the outsiders they see the bad that they put in the newspapers but have you heard about students coming through our school saying they shooting and bombing up the place, Oh, nawl you don't .And the sad part of it all is that Dougherty Junior High is closing down.So, that means our could be Trojans will be split up.But Hey! Life goes on, Eastside Out!!!!

I transferred to this school from out of state and before I started attending it, I heard a few bad opinions about it. But I figured that I couldn't be that bad. Once I started going there, I realized that it was worse than other people had led on for it to be. I have all of my required credits and I have passed my graduation tests, but they will not let me graduate early. I am stuck learning things that i learned in the 6th-8th grade at my previous school system. It is pathetic. Everyone seems to have so much pride in the school and i can't figure out why. As for the teaching...I get the same amount of classwork in one week, that I would receive in one single day at my old school. So the lessons move extremely slow.

I am currently in my third year at Dougherty Comperhensive High School and I wouldn't have it any other way. I was prevously on the football team and played for two different coaches for two years, but on my third year I decided to go back to my first love, BAND. The head coach (Coach Flowers) respected my decision and supported me and that's what I love about this school. No matter what the media say I would definately recommend Dougherty High first.

I am a student hear at DCHS. I am a proud member of the Phantom Marching Trojan Band. I attended Lincoln Elementary and then Robert Cross. The transition was a great experience. It is a very looked down upon school because of its'location. Mishaps are going on at all of the schools, including Byne. It's always the people who have never set foot somewhere jumping to conclusion. Isn't that stereotype?

I am a current student at dougherty and I think the school is a good place to get an education if you are willing to learn and be taught. We have excellent extracurrucular activities such as the chorale and the band, they are the best in the city. I have the privilage of being a member of the class of 2006 and I can honestly save that my years at dougherty has been an educational experience. And has helped me to become a better all around person. I can say with all my heart that I am a true trojan.

In my opinion, Dougherty High is a great school. The academics and teachers are great. The band is excellent, both marching and symphonic if I do say so myself, being a member and all. The chorale is wonderful. The football team had an awesome season this year. There are plenty of clubs and activites for the students to get involved in. It's just all-around wonderful. The level of parent involvement is good also.

I am a senior who is currently attends Dougherty High and I think that my school is a good place where every student can learn if they want to. And even though we might have pitty problems at the school we are still the most achieving school out of all of the high Schools in Dougherty County. And for the public yall might see our school name in the newspapers and news saying things to make our school look bad but it's really not, it's just how the media put Dougherty in the spoylight like we are just so terrible and out of control. But from my point of view we are intelligient young adults who really put forth into doing our best so that we can be the best in the future. And for the teacher that teaches at Dougherty High is the best of best. class of 2006

I attended this school from 1994 until I graduated in 1998 and I can tell you from my personal experience that this school is in need for some improvement. All the way from the undisciplined stundents to the teachers that are just there for the paycheck. If the teachers and the principal only knew what goes on in the halls of their school, they would be shocked.
