Dothan City Schools Reviews
The Dothan City Schools district is a district in progress: many teachers who have been with the school district are loyal, experienced, and passionate about their work; however, changes in the system and administration as of lately (2019-2020) have drastically upset the students and staff. The year and the few years following will be full of changes and uncertainty. In the past, the elementary and middle schools have had large amounts of parent involvement as well as programs to help better prepare and engage students in college preparedness and the real-world. The high schools had large amounts of dedication from active students in clubs and extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, with the new system, many students and schools have lost morale to continue many activities and uphold old traditions. The district is transforming, but nobody yet knows if it is for the better or worse.
Dothan City Schools is not a bad school system, but its not one that i would put my future children in. My experience with this school system was alright they do not hire the teachers that are concered about our grades they hire ones that are more worried about their JOB such as makkng sure we are in dressed code, earbuds, etc. I’ve honestly have gone home and taught myself Math problems since I was a Freshman at Northview Highschool.
I would like for them to be advanced, and to teach as fast as the other states. I feel as they are to worried about the less important things to focus on the important things. They should give classes that will help you get into a better college and have you prepared instead of taking unnecessary classes.
