Dominguez High School has definitely improved on every aspect since I first got there for my sophomore year in 2015. I am now a Dominguez Alumni. In those three years when I was there, I've seen countless brawls among students, threats to the school, and new principal, etc. Although this school has gone through many bad reports, this school also overcame a lot of the drama. The new principal, Mr.Watson, is doing such an amazing job changing the school overall. He's more involved than the previous principal and shows that he cares for his students and staff. Instead of being locked away in his office, he's actually being apart of the culture that he wants to see his school begin to be. Overall, the school has improved tremendously over the past two years since I graduated in 2018.

To overall rate my experience in Dominguez High school, I would personally say most areas can be improved. With the change of principal, we were able to input many programs to try and help the upcoming classes. For instance, the school started Link Crew to help better guide the future generation in hopes they do better than the generation and classes before them. Overall, we are far from perfect, slowly but surely there has been minor improvement.
Dominguez High School has been a tough yet great experience. As a freshman it was hard for me to transition into a new environment but now that I am a junior I have gotten accustomed to the people around me and the workload I am given. The school is not extremely large, therefore, allowing all students to build friendships with one another. This school can be quite dirty at times but most of us try to maintain it clean. As long as you hang out with the right crowd, you'll be fine!
