My son received an above average education, was afforded many opportunities for diverse learning, received tutoring when needed and felt at home at Dothan High. Attended 4 years with a choice of other schools but always chose DHS.

Dothan H.S has a a lot of great things to offer. I encourage all parents to get involved in his/her child's education. Dothan H.S tends to get the bad rep. Encourage your child to demand an education! Things are still in need of more direct supervision; however, a change is coming. I have faith!
