Read what parents are saying about Doherty High School
I love the staff, teachers and students. I like it that my kids are at a school that is racially and socio-economically diverse. It teaches the students compassion, kindness and to accept those that are different then them.

I love this school and it’s people. There are no AP math classes that I am aware of, so idk why there’s a statistic on it.

It was an awesome experience. All schools in the U.S. have some sort of problems with one or two teachers or students. Overall my experience was really good. The teachers really care about there students. I had the opportunity to join pretty much any club or sport possible. My teachers took me for a week long fieldtrip to learn about water, geology, astronomy, ancient cultures, etc... It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I would highly recommend any student to at least try out Doherty.

Unfortunately Doherty is not as good as many people may tell you. I attended Doherty my starting in 2013 and I transferred halfway through my Junior year (2015). Doherty is a place of competition in every aspect weather it be in sports or personal status, i.e. Who is the most popular, who is in student council, or who throws the "craziest" party. Sports is one thing but once you cross the line into person status and ego that's where everything gets twisted and unethical. Without getting into detail, it can be hard enough to keep yours grades up and then add that the feeling of having to keep up with all the "cool" kids is ridiculous because if you don't, good luck ever finding your niche. I left because I lost sence of who I really was and the pressure of trying to keep up was not worth it anymore. Because in reality High School I just a stepping stone in our lives. All in all I would not recommend at all going to Doherty, but in the end it's your call.

I had a great experience at Doherty (I was an AP/honors student juggling homework and 3 different bands as well as cheer and graduated with a 3.99 in 2014. It can be done as long as you focus), but I can't say the same thing for my brother. He was bullied so bad for wanting to do cheer that he ended up transferring schools. The admin did everything they could to stop it, but nothing worked. Doherty is a good place for academics and sports, but when it comes to the way kids treat each other, its one of the worst places ive ever seen. The teachers try to help, but kids will always lie about what happens. They also have a drug issue, but if you don't know people who do drugs, you'll never know about it.
