  • Doherty High School is an epitome of learning, raising the academic standard as well as standards in club and athletic areas.Our principal, Dennis Vigil, was set to leave his "temporary post as principal until every single student rallied, and let the "authorities" know who we thought deserved to be in charge.Teachers will take time to help individual students without babying them or ignoring others.Security guards are always alert but will take time to help you or even just talk. Those who currently attend this school are lucky to have such a fine experience, Thank you to all staff and students for making this school the best place to learn.
