I attended Doyline, my husband attended Doyline, and now my two kids attend Doyline. Doyline has great teachers! The principal and PTO officials need to be changed. But Doyline has issues just like other schools have issues but ours are smaller issues. Our community is small but for the most part are very nice and helpful people! I would much rather have my children in Doyline school than any other school in Webster Parish!!

I have lived in Doyline since 1996. I learned very quickly that if you are not part of the click, you don't belong. The elementary and high school have now joined together. They use to be separate. The elementary school was excellent with wonderful teachers and the students were friendly and the school was wonderful. After my children started going to high school they went from being a and b honor roll students to d's and f's. How does that happen? The principal does not answer phone calls, He is never in his office when I go up there to see him. The assistant principal has taken a serious dislike to my child and treats her horribly all the time. If you don't play baseball or basket ball you don't fit in. I will say that your children will definitely know how to tuck their shirt in and wear a belt. They will know that only those with money can wear street clothes because they have to pay $2 to wear these clothes. The money is suppose to go to st. judes so I wont complain. Just be prepared to spend a lot of money at Doyline high. This town is full of drugs. If you have good kids, move here they will be corrupted. My child cannot read or spell. tried to get help, no help for him.

I moved to Doyline from the very live and social city of Las Vegas. Its been a little while since I finally DROPPED OUT of this HORRIBLE school. This is the lowest of low to me. I actually attended this school for almost three years. And after a couple years of relearning what i learned in 7th and 8th, I finally decided that I just could not bear any more of it. I begged my mother to let me get away from this school that was basically just wasting my life away.I was sooo bored that I lost interest every class and had trouble just waking up to go to school for my fear of intoxicating boredom and surrounding myself with very uneducated people. This school did nothing to prepare me for the life I wanted!! If you don't have interest in southern activities or have very southern views then this is no the place for you. You will not fit. And God forbid you be different. They will tear you down!! This is just an unfunded , uneducated, over bearing, old timey mess. Not mention far to small and outdated.

I was a student here. I guess I am just not the small-town type, because when I graduated I joined the Air Force to get the heck out of that town. I would have joined the French Foreign Legion if I had to. I was soooo happy to finally meet people who were curious about the world and life. I would rather live in a Turkish village in the mountains than return to this town.

I am a student a Doyline High School and i would have to say that it is by far the best school i've been to. I've moved quite a bit in my school years. When my mom moved us to doyline i hadnt expected to stay until i graduated. I am a senior this year and proud to be a Doyline Graduate. We might be a small school and we may not have very many options but our teachers are great and only a few don't know what thery are doing. Mr. Rolwland is our new principle and he is actually doing some good for our school. If you don't like our school then leave and don't put us down because some of us are acutally happy here.

I moved to Doyline from a medium sized town in the North. I must say that I am wasting away here! I have been here for quite awhile now, and each day I become more and more disappointed. Yes I have made some really great friends and am fitting in well, but the school work is practically elementry. I am not challenged at all, and I actually feel like I'm losing brain cells just attending. It is ridiculous, I have a math teacher who is actually an English teacher and not qualified to teach math, but does because there is no one else. I have a science teacher only certified to teach physical science and biology, but teaches chemistry and Biology 2 (even though the teacher claims he hasn't been given a course guide for biology two and doesn't know what he is doing). Also, it is a town of drugs!

We now have a new principal at Doyline. I feel that he is going to be great for the school. However, baseball and basketball are the only thing this school offers. Most teachers give special attention to the ball players. They get by with things that others don't. This is very unfair. I feel Doyline needs to bring back Home Ec and offer more classes that makes kids college prepared. Also more shop classes for guys who need to learn a trade and don't plan to attend college. Mr Heflin is a great teacher,leader,and friend and very capable of teaching this young men a trade.

I am a former student at Doyline and I am so glad that my mom decided to move me to another school this coming year. Not because of my friends because I will miss them but because of the teachers and school period. The teachers arent there for you unless you are one of the

I have two kids that up until this school year attended Doyline. In this little town and school it's all about who you are. The teachers I delt with were awful!

I am from a small town in Texas and I thought that it was the worst until I put my kids in Doyline. The kids have nothing to keep them driven. If you don't play basketball or baseball then you are a no body. You would think that because of the low class volume that there would be nothing but high scores on everything but that isn't the case at all. If you think because this is a small school that your child will get that extra push they might need don't. If they can attend another school other than Doyline I would suggest you take them there.

I am a student at doyline High School and it does nothing for my education. This school and classes don't challenge me compared to ALL my other schools. There is too much drama and I feel uncomftorable in the uniforms. There is not a lot of extra-currucular activities so there is a lot of drinking, smoking, and dipping. They don't have a lot of class choices like Spanish, Home Economics, Theatre, ROTC, etc. I have not learned anything good from here, and the teachers can't teach good because they have to make sure shirts are tucked in, belts are on, the students wear uniform shirts under their jackets. This really cuts in to the class time.

Doyline High Shoool is by far one of the best in the world for the size and location. I have heard that the teacher quality has declined since i graduated in 2000 but there are still the staple ingredients to make it a great school. As far as it not preparing you for college...i graduated from one of hte most prestigious colleges of the south, graduated in four years, and now have a job with a nation wide company and have never at any point in time struggled from my high school days. As far as Mr. Stewart goes...I am proud to say that I played softball under him for four years and there is not a principal in the world who can hold a candle to his care and dedication. He is a remarkable man and Doyline High School is a remarkable place!

I'm a graduate of Doyline. I switched schools MANY times and Doyline was by far my favorite. The town is very small, everyone knows everyone. Principal is very active, at every funciton, even coached the softball team. All the teachers care so much about the success of each student to the point where some gave up their lunch hour to provide a classroom for tutoring. All that faculty was very approachable at all times, counselor was awesome. There might not be football or a band but the care and concern makes up for it all. I almost didnt graduate, but the day of graduation the principal took it upon himself to call to Baton Rouge to force the immediate grading of my final test and results so I could walk with my class. Thanks!

Doyline is a small school but the staff is as kind as they can be. I graduated in 1998 and those were the best years of my life...

I am a graduate of Doyline, and I thought of it to be a great school. I went to La School and preferred Doyline over it. It really prepared me for life and college. Mr. Stewart is very involved. The teachers are great also. It may not have football or band, but for a small school, it offers a good education. Why express that this school is terrible? You have one on one with students.

I am not a parent of a student at Doyline, but I graduated from Doyline. I can honestly say that it is by far one of the worst high schools imaginable. I was involved in all extra-curricular activities, and I made the best grades. However, I was continuously treated unfairly. The majority of the teaching staff is excellent, but there are those, much like any school, that are not so great. The principal is a supreme mediator, and I love him dearly. The quality of the education, however, is not ideal for college-bound students, and I would not recommend this high school to any potential student.

The comment about the principal being uninvolved in insane. The principal is one of the most involved i have ever seen. Maybe it's a case of an uninvolved parent. It is a small town school and one of the absolute best in the state as far as principal and teacher involvement.

This is a small town school, and it shows. There are hardly any extra curricular activities. No football, no band, no swimming, no anything! The principal is not involved at all.
