Dora High never really has a dull moment. I've always enjoyed being involved in all of the extracurricular activities, like playing sports or being in clubs like FFA, FBLA, FCCLA, Honors Program, BETA, A+ Program, and many others. I feel like because Dora is such a small school that there is a lot more of the 1-on-1 teacher/student relationship, which is a nice thing to have. This allows students and teachers to interact a little better and feel more comfortable in their learning environment. However, Dora is a very sport oriented school, with only a decent level of student "pep" or "spirit" to support the athletics. There are many students that are in many different clubs, but many of them don't really express much interest in actually being involved in them. There are ups and downs to this school, just as there are with any other high school. I've enjoyed my years here, but there are a few things I would change if I could, therefore my overall rating is a 3/5.

We have multiple clubs here. We have Beta, FFA, FCCLA, FBLA, Art, Music, Science, and Math clubs. Some people only committed to one club. Some were committed to all of them. FFA and FCCLA were the most popular clubs. The administration was only supportive of FFA or the sports players.
The high school principal does a horrible job. He lets ball players get away with whatever they have done wrong. Our counselor is wonderful. She has done a very good job. We a low tolerance for bullies. The dress code has caused multiple controversies but what dress code does not?
