My daughter transferred here from San Antonio to finish the last half of the year. I was very disappointed with the staff and the way the school is ran from the inside to out!

The staff at Dobie tries so hard to help these students succeed and they are always upbeat and helpful. I have never seen such heart put into what they do.

I believe that this school will be better in the future. Right now I cannot say so.

Posted by a parent on 07/12/05

While I heard before sending my child to Dobie that there were problems there, I have no complaints. The staff and the principal, Dr. Russell, have been excellent in keeping me informed of my son's progress or any problems. You just have to be a parent that is involved in the school so that they will ...  Read more
