  • This is a wonderful school. I have four children and all of them graduated with some type of scholarship, to a well known college. One of my sons graduated from Morehouse College, the other one graduated from Cerro Coso College in Californis, My daughter graduated from Troy State and Valdosta University, my youngest son is in college now. I have plenty of respect for Dougherty High School, faculty and staff.
