I am currently a student at Doyle and its an amazing place to be. With the school being only 500-650 students the teachers can help us better. We have an amazing principal and amazing teachers. I'm a 4.0 student with college credit already and I'm just a junior. The staff knows all of us, yes it takes a while to remember but they know us. We have an ok athletic dept. Our basketball teams are great but our softball/baseball suck. With our school being in such a small town everyone knows everyone and everyone is friends with everyone. Our school used to be known for all the kids who broke the rules with 1000+ referrals for 400 kids. Now it's 150 for 600. I would highly recommend my school. We welcome our new students and make them feel as if they have been here forever.

My daughter just graduated from Doyle and is going to a great college with 15 college credits already. She is confident and ready for the next challenge in her life. I also noticed at graduation that many of our students had Technical experience and were headed down that path as well. Nice to know both aspects of life after high school are being covered. My son starts this year and I can't wait to see what he wants to do!

I give this school one star only because I can not give zero. This school is horrible. The teaching staff have no idea how to teach. The office staff are rude and unhelpful. The principal is more worried about sports than the education or well being of the students. The principal claims to hold the "right" to make up rules because it is "his" school, so students can get in trouble for anything at anytime. The entire staff needs to be replaced. It used to be a good school but it has really went down hill in the last 10-15 years. There are so many horror stories that come out of Doyle now it is not funny.

Wished i would have never sent my child to this small stuck up school. Was a B/c student before entering this school and now my child isnt even in school. To many parents who are not from here have taken their children out and homeschooled or moved due to this school.

We just enrolled at this school & would like to comment on how great the principle and staff were at making it easy & worry free. Our child is very happy & feels very welcome at DHS.

My daughter graduated from this school last May and just finished her first year of college with a 4.0 GPA. I don't think she could have had a better high school experience than the one she had at Doyle High School. There is a great relationship between the administration, faculty, students and support staff. The principal is approachable and fun but no-nonsense when it comes to discipline so I always felt that my child was in a safe environment conducive to learning. Doyle High is not a large school but it is not tiny either. It is classified as 2A which is 4th out of 7 classifications for the state schools. It was just right for us and our daughter.

Doyle is very small and does not offer many choices regarding courses preparing for college. The parent/teacher conferences that I have ben involved in did not seem very productive toward helping my child at all. The school does offer some pros like the office staff are very friendly and I do like the pricipal, but some of the teachers leave me unsatisfied with my kid's educational training.

Doyle is a fantastic school. The administration, counselor and teachers do a great job with the students. My child is graduating this year (2009) and will be well prepared for college. She is taking college prep courses and the counselor helped her enroll in college classes as well. The senior sponsors have brought them to visit a college and the counselor has already begun working on scholarships with the seniors. The school may be small in size but they are big when it comes to compassion, academics, success and giving all students a chance. I'll take that any day over a big school with their big problems. I salute and appreciate all their hard work. Go Tigers!

As much as i complained about doyle while i was in it, i've come to realize i would've felt the same at any school..doyle is not a bad place, there are doctors, state sentators, and state reps that graduated from doyle..so it must not be that terrible!!..and the sports may not be all that great,, but they'll get it back runnin..the baseball team is starting to finally get it back, they could've went all the way last year..but mainly for Doyle i can say that it is the friendliest and most welcome school to new students who come in..everyone at doyle are somewhat friends, and everyone looks out for one another,, with very very few enemies!!!..so take a chance and send ure kids to doyle..i kno i will... Go Tigers!!!

This school is too small two of my kids went through it. One did not graduate because of the lack of caring on the teachers part and my childs part. The principal worries about stuff he doesnt need to worry about. I wish you the best if you choose this school. I will not be allowing my kids to go to this school in the future. God bless you if you have to put up with this school system.ithe fut

Doyle is very small, they need to stop being so worried about all they little things that can be over looked and worry about if the students are getting what they need for college.

Doyle is a very small school. It does not offer a wide variety of courses due to its size. My child is going to attend college after graduation. The lack of variety in curriculum choice is a negative when it comes to preparing her for college. Also, the dealings that I have had with some of the teachers have not been satisfying. All of the teachers that I have been in contact with seem very concerned during open house, but if a conference is scheduled they seem less enthusiastic about discussing the child's strengths and weaknesses.
