    Overall Experience: Being that I am a teenager who has great talent , but didnt know how to use it , Dougherty High has introduced me into the amazing fine arts program that they offer. Dougherty has developed me into an outspoken leader, a leader that I would have never saw myself as. With the beautiful campus and the outstanding teachers, my peers and I have scored high on the EOCTS, Georgia Milestones, and nine weeks test. Dougherty is an awesome performing arts school. I'm sure glad I am a student there.

    Teachers: The teachers are okay. Some go above and beyond for some students' needs. Other teachers don't care and sometimes students fail because of that.
