My experience here at Dougherty High school is fairly common experience with any school. Which is a love hate relationship. This school has put me through many challenges academically wise, putting me through the most rigorous courses they could offer. The school spirit is out of this world, they encourage everyone to go out and support any extracurricular activity. Whether that be a sport or a club. Dougherty has a really high expectations about grades and helping encourage our peers to better themselves. The dress code for the school is very lenient. They welcome each and every student with open arms.

My experience at Dougherty High School has been excellent!
I have became apart of the Trojan family and I love it. I really love doing Mock Trial, Debate Team, SkillsUSA, Pageant, and Beta Club!
Dougherty Comprehensive High School is an very good school. Not only that, they have a lot of school pride and support everyone in their extra curricular activities. The administrative staff is on point with the rules and regulations and cares about everyone’s safety. The administrators are very considerate about letting the students of the school voice their opinions and concerns as young adults. I like the fact that they give us a chance to be heard. They teachers are also very supportive and caring. They truly care about the seniors futures as we get prepared to leave the school. They are always checking up on us and reminding us to get our selves in order for college and helping us stay on track with graduation.
