I mean, I made friends you can't meet people bullying is everywhere but tbh not so bad here (at least for me) the teachers are cool/good teachers sadly the bad children don't always give them the proper chance to teach which in turn hindered my own education. But my CTE course (which is pretty much the same) still gave me some great lessons and tools/achievements to help me find a job outside of school.

I was ecstatic when I received my offer letter to Dobbins, and it was great up until my sophomore year. The teachers didn’t really care if you learned anything, except maybe a handful. I would input more guidance counselors in that school to show the youth that people do care.
At Murrell Dobbins CTE high school I had a great experience. Being a student I have learn a lot about life and myself. The teachers always try to make sure that every student is involve.Dobboins also, provided great career opportunity for juniors and seniors who are not going to college.
