I have attended Dodson High School for all of my high school career. I am on the basketball team and am involved in almost every club on campus. Dodson has an accepting family and community atmosphere. Dodson is a very clean campus with well-mannered students. Although Dodson is a small school, we have a really big heart.

The majority of our teaching staff at Dodson H/S are impeccable. They show much compassion, not only for their job, but also for their students.Most of the high school teachers would help you with any problem at any point in the day if you called. In fact I have most of their personal phone numbers as a reference for jobs and homework help.
We have a moderate amount of extracurricular opportunities here at Dodson H/S, however, the clubs and organizations we offer rarely host any activites.
