My favorite aspects of Doddridge County High School would be sports and the level of connectivity. In each and every sport everyone enjoys themselves as they grow better mentally and physically. Each student works together very well as not only a team but as a massive family. At the same time, this is not a big school (less than 400 people), so everyone knows each other which makes it easier to get along with individuals and learn more about them. Unlike larger schools, in this high school students and faculty are fortunate enough to create unique relationships on more personal levels since there are less students to keep track of. If I had to see anything change about this high school, I would say it needs to be more college ready and actually enforce deadlines for assignments with follow up consequences if the deadline is not met.

Doddridge schools have wonderful teachers who try to do anything for their students. The curriculum is improving but still needs more diversity in electives. The arts are in need of more funding but the money isn't there. My favorite thing is marching and concert band, there is opportunity to learn and grow as an individual.
There were some teachers I had in high school who did everything they could to see me succeed, while there were others who did the bare minimum. The administration is a joke. Too political and not enough about education.
