Dobie High School is very diverse! The teachers are very loving and caring. The whole Dobie community wants all students to succeed and be great in life. There is always somebody there for you. I am currently a senior there and with the pandemic going on they have made sure all students especially seniors are okay. They are doing everything they can to make up all of our senior activities including prom, senior tea, panoramic pictures and most importantly graduation! This year meant everything to us and they are determined to make us happy.

My experience at Dobie has been amazing! Dobie is very diverse and they offer a variety of activities for students. The teachers care and work very hard to teach the materials needed. Pep rallies, football games, and spirit days are super fun. Megalunch is the best. It gives us the opportunity to have lunch and be able to also have meetings for club.
Dobie is a very nice and pretty average High school. It has pretty good sports programs, but academics lack. For one, student involvement in their studies and classes they take are very restricted and students have very little idea of what their gpas or rankings look like unless they go searching pretty deep to find them. Dobie is no doubt a very friendly and warm school, with staff and teachers who are genuinely pretty helpful, not to mention their national winning debate team and amazing academic decathlon team, both of which i was able to learn deeply about. I just wish they pushed for a more academics forward atmosphere by ranking kids every semester, offering more classes like AP research and seminar, and being more flexible about what their students want to learn about. This doesnt even begin to touch on their lack of any professional classes other than those for the medical field, engineering or finance is almost no where to be found.
