Dobie is an amazing academically favored school. Where alot of opportunities are given to the students to try new activities every day. With such activities, students are able to grow in maturity, friendship, and experiencing moments that'll last a life time. With each activity, having its own perks that will look good on college applications. Furthermore, the safety and bond building of the school has peaked like never before. In today's era, the commonality of high school shootings has increased tremendously. However, the careful methods of bond-making and safety procedure provides Dobie with utmost protection of the students. Providing them with a full and abundant education without any remorse of fearing for their life on a daily basis.

I love the extracurricular activities they offer. The student population is very diverse. They opened a ninth grade center recently that separates grade 9 from grades 10-12, so the main campus is less crowded. It used to be a problem with 4000+ students in the school, but now it's not as bad. The school is very good at promoting their extra curricular activities, but they tend to focus on their sports programs like most schools. School spirit is high and it is fun to participate in pep rallies. It's right by a pizza place, gas station, and doughnut shop that are within walking distance from the school. The school has a lot to offer and has something for everyone.
Overall - a typical high school! I met a variety of people from many different backgrounds and ethnicities, and learned so much about other people. At Dobie, you grow not just as a student - but as a person as well.
