Many of my friends go to Dobson. Whenever I go to the football games I show my i.d. for the discount and when they see i'm from a different school I immediately got an attitude and was treated poorly as were my friends that go to Dobson. The staff is unbelievably rude. Even the security guards! The school ...  Read more

My daughter is an A student in her second year, but the only real problems have been her math teachers. They both have been very disorganized. They lose her homework all the time. My daughter has to keep track of her homework when turned in because many times it isn't accounted for. The math teachers ...  Read more

This is my son's second year at Dobson and he has always been an A-B student. He has become very depressed at this school and his grades are slipping.

After seeing the recent reviews, I'm glad to see it's not just my family having issues with Dobson. My daughter has always been a B-C student but this year (9th grade) her grades have slipped and she has come home frustrated saying the teacher don't teach the subject. I called several teachers and only ...  Read more

Dobson is horrible. This was my son's first year and the teachers are very rude and the principals seem to find ways to suspend or send home your kids. My son was sent home because he was 'not working' when he was sick at school. Crazy! We transferred to Chandler High and have had NO issues - I would ...  Read more

I have been attending Dobson since my freshman year, I am a senior now. The reason I only get Dobson two stars is because most of their staff is rude, irresponsible, and immature. More than a few of my teachers would talk about being friends with students on social networking sites. There were many occasions ...  Read more

Not a very good school. Teachers are very disorganized and the office staff seem to dig for reasons to send kids home and suspend them. I moved my kids to a charter school where they are now very successful.
