On Health & Safety: Safety is somewhat of a priority at Dobson. I always feel safe. There are security guards and police on campus patrol all day everyday. The nurse doesn't do much. It isn't even worth going unless you are dying, in which case she would call someone else to deal with it.

High School Senior

On Academics: Dobson is far ahead of many other high schools with the same classes. Dobson also has a wide variety of honors and AP classes. You are given every opportunity to succeed at Dobson.
