Dora High School has shaped me into the person I am today. The care from the wonderful faculty and the close-knit family of my graduating class makes the homework and pop quizzes all worth it!

I love the helpful staff, they have always been right beside me all the way through. I am a junior at Dora High School and I have enjoyed it here very much. Dora has an excellent staff of well trained individuals and they are all always on their toes about our safety and education. Sometimes students talk bad about Dora but it's only because they don't care and just want to go home, but really if you paid attention you would notice how great Dora really is.
What I liked about Dora High School was the atmosphere. The teachers, coaches, and administration were all very helpful and friendly. There was no possible way you could be anything but happy there.
