  • This school works extra hard in being successful. Regardless of what the city says, Donahue School is the only school I'd pick to be in. Maybe their scores were low at some times but everybody has their ups and downs but their building up back to success! These teachers devote their time in showing us every bit of knowledge they know. All this under estimating us has only made us stronger and we will succeed!
