Dolores High School is a great school for students to learn and grow because of the dedication the teachers show their students. In this school, teachers help students with their academic needs by setting examples, giving out resources, and one-on-one tutoring. This school also provides students with afterschool sports that allow students to enjoy their time with other classmates and friends. However the one thing that can change from this school would be the lack of club activities. Which if there were any it would help the school prosper and have enthusiastic students. I can say students and alumni love Dolores High School.

I have always felt safe at Dolores High School. There are cameras around campus, connected to a computer in our main office that is monitored all day. Not much bullying happens, unless it is on social media or texting. We have lock down drills and fire drills pretty regularly to make sure students know what to do in case of an emergency. All outside doors are locked at all times. There is only one school nurse campus-wide, K-12, which is not very good. High school and middle school students have to walk all the way to the Elementary school to go see the nurse.
There is a large focus on athletics at Dolores High School. Multiple other extracurricular opportunities are available, but most of the support goes to sports. Parents do not get very into other clubs, and the administration doesn't give much support to clubs. All fundraising is done within the groups, and many of the groups are made up of the same few people. There are not very diverse options for groups, but the motivation for students to create their own clubs is not very high.
