The previous post on fights is correct. Seems to be allot of them. My son recorded one and posted it to Instagram with no identifiable information and removed it a couple hours later. Someone copied it and he got three days out of school suspension and they seized his phone and I had to pay to get it back. Not even a call on taking his phone, found out on Friday at 4pm and had to go beat on the school doors to get in a retrieve it. School doesn't like people to know what's really going on there I guess. Moved here because of the schools and have one here and one At steele high school, really wish they were going to Clemons and corbet cause these two schools are headed downhill.

My family and I moved to Cibolo from the Houston Area and my son has been enrolled at Dobie since the 1st week of November. He missed the cut-off of basketball tryouts by 1-day and was told that we could not play because he missed tryouts. This was very disappointing as we were hoping that being involved in a school team would help with the transition. Since November he has reported to us that he has witnessed 3 fights; 1 recorded on his phone. The overall feeling I get is there is a lack of discipline. I personally have heard the way that the students talk to the teachers and it is not only rude but disrespectful. My son regularly reports that students are loud and disturb the teachings in just about every class he is in. There seems to be no pride in the school when compared to our previous junior high; very little community involvement, student activities (outside of sports). Our son will work through the remainder of the year but will most likely transfer to a private school next fall. I do not have faith that this school is working to prepare him for high school.

The school is good, but needs some improvement, in some areas specially in the cafeteria, because of the bad organization in lunch time. Good Principal and good staff.

This school puts a lot of emphasis on its sports. Which shows in how successful they are. My daughter is in the honors classes, and they don't seem hard enough for her. I think the teachers should try and challenge the students more. Other than that I have no complaints as she absolutely adores her teachers, and the administrative staff seems good.

I will admit there are a lot of students that attend this school only because everyone wants to go here and the community is growing by leaps and bounds. The teachers are great in replying to your emails pretty quickly. The Grade speed is in the only way to go but, if you don't have internet is is nearly impossible to get feed back from the teachers. Their counselors are a great help but, as for parent involvement, I haven't really notice anything. Our other school was always sending out request for help, having quarterly parent/teacher meet and greets. and offering invitations for plays, concerts, science fairs, and sports for everyone that had children in their school. They were always looking for volunteers to help. My daughter says she likes all of her teachers and the principal. She said the staff is nice except she isn't happy with the cafeteria workers (can be rude and stressed) or lunch itself. Only because there are too many kids to get a plate and not enough time to eat if you did. So, she takes a lunch.

I moved here from alamo hieghts, and I am very dissapointed. this school has way to many students and to few teachers. My child never has homework, and is not academically challenges. She is however socially challenged, because alot of the kids are just mean. it's like their parents are nowere in their life. some of the teachers need to retire, since they do not actually teach. I was a sub teacher there and the kids are disrespectful and lazy.

It's a great school. My son was in pre-ap and regular classes the 2 years his spend there, and he did great. He also was in Honor Band great program, great teacher Mr. Daniels. Did have couple of issue with some classes and as soon as I e-mailed or talked to the teacher it was solved, very satisfied with them never had to go to the principal. The only downside is small cafeteria for so many kids, besides that its a great school district. We are in the military and we plan to go back to the community.

This school is great i must say. I would however recommend all pre-ap for your child as regular classes are really not a good crowd to have your child hanging out in. One thing is the principals and counselors never back the parent or the student. They will always back the teacher, that is just how the SCUCISD works. 6/7 of my teachers do care alot about how i do, and i will say if you do well in this district as far as studies go you will be rewarded as our teachers respect hard workers. Dobie is aslo one of the most respected schools even in san antonio. I would definitley consider putting your kid in this school. We just had construction done on our school, so there is lots of new facilities. Check it out!

Dobie Junior High is an excellent school and if you move to Cibilo you should send your child there. The lockers are very clean and the staff is very nice. I haven't had a problem with the school since my child went there. It is so nice that I believe I'll try to get a job there in the near future to spend more time with my child.

Dobie is much better than where my child would be going 'Luna Middle School' had we not moved. However, I am very impressed with the overall district policy regarding discipline actions. The 'one strike, zero tolerance' is adequate. Take a student who is doing well (A's and B's), participates in school activities, etc., and has one minor incident like 'disorderly conduct - fighting', and the child is suspended for 3 days, ticketed by campus police, and attends court, yes real court with a real judge.

Give me a break! And when you question administration about it, they say 'we must treat them all the same'. I remember that from when I was in school. We studied it. It was called communism! Yes I am venting, and our district isn't the only that works this way. And yes, I will be running for a board position soon.

If you have to move to Schertz (or most anywhere else in San Antonio) this is the better Jr High by far. They still place a lot of emphasis on sports instead of academics, but they do offer honors classes, but education standards are still not that great (texas doesn't rank very high). My son has had a few great teachers, but a few that were awful, the 1 counselor is overworked. They have implemented email and grades posted online. Most teachers will give you quick feedback via email, a real plus! Environment and atmosphere are safe.
