I attended Dougherty High from 1986-1990 and to this day, I believe Dougherty truly is th best school ever. Dougherty is not a "bad" school! Some of the current students may be the offspring of those I went to school with which makes me wonder if that school pride has been passed on to the students of today. Parents, get involved with your children and teach them to be proud of not only their school but themselves!!!
i love this school despite the opposition that i may interfere with other people in my surroundings. i am part of the chorale and it is such an exhilarating experience for me to enjoy. i show a great tremendous amount of sympathy for this school no matter what the cost was.
I am a student here at DCHS. It is a great school for kids to learn. This school has a lot of great activities. I am also a part of the DCHS chorale, and it is like a family to me
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 have attended Dougherty for my freshman and Sophmore year. I have to admit that it is such a great school. I am part of the DCHS Chorale. They are very important to me. The chorale is the best thing at Dougherty.They are my family. I love Dougherty I would have my child go there if I were you. Brittney Hilson

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 currently a sophomore at dchs it is the best school in the nation. The people here helped me a lot. Mr.Reid has really helped me too, he is an good principal. I am in the band, and DECA, and I will have to say that every day I learn something new at DCHS. Keep the Trojan Spirit going -Shaniqua Harris
I am currently a sophomore at Dougherty Comprehensive High School.I think that Dougherty High is the best school in the nation simply because of the students and the teachers who care about us.I am an active member of the marching and symphonic band who have won numerous awards for our achievements.I would recommend that any child attend Dougherty High because at Dougherty failure is not an option. -D.Williams
I am currently a junior at Dougherty Comprehensive High School. I feel as though Diugherty is the best school in the nation simply because of the great students that attend.I am an active member in the band serving as one of the drummajors. I am also A Varsity Basketball cheerleader.
I am a freshman at DCHS, and also a member of the Phantom marching Band,all upper class men have been extremely helpful.I recommend that your child be involved in some activity, to help ease the transaction.
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?
Since we enrolled our Children in this School, we have had nothing but problem. A Very Racial divide school, Our child is still waiting to get the proper Education that the state says he should get.
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 think that Mr. Reid is the best. He is a nice man. He tries to help students to keep them from getting into trouble. There are some students who you can't help.My Uncle took the graduation test last year and passed it on the first time he is with the c/o 2006.Dougherty have the best teachers and staff in the DCSS. Congraulation!
I am a 12th grade student at Dougherty High school an I think that my school is a excellent environment. My school sometimes has it faults but I would recommend any student to attend this wonderful school. we have a excellent marching band, and wonderful chorale and great teachers and me personally I think that i am a part of of the best senior class that has ever came through dougherty and that is the class of 2006.
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 am a former student at dougherty high, i graduated in 1997. i attended albany high school up until the 10th grade and transfered to dougherty. my years at dougherty were indeed pleasant ones. the teachers there really cared about the students and wanted to see each of us succeed. as i look at the way schools are now being taught, i only wish that our kids had teachers like the ones that taught me. dougherty high is an excellent school and i am proud to be an alumni.
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.
