Dougherty Comprehensive High School Reviews

The school experience at this school was overall great to me despite some of the teachers. I have had some teachers that weren't the best, but I have had teachers that put their all into helping me succeed. My favorite experience was being in fourth period my senior year of high school. I had a teacher who was full of life, and I always experienced something new in her class. Also the school events were my favorite experiences from the drama productions to the basketball games. The school is unique because it's a school of the arts, and it's always a good show that is put on.
I love Dougherty Comprehensive High School. The environment makes me feel good when I step inside the premises. If there could be anything to make that school better, is more clubs because I feel like students should have the opportunity to do more than learn in the classrooms so that they could have a better highschool experience before they graduate.
The basketball teams always has the school with good energy whether the team wins or loses the game. Also the drama productions always give a good laugh, and the opportunity to be out of class for up to two hours. Both the games from the basketball teams both girl and boys, and the drama productions gave everyone hype and also something to enjoy.
