  • Dominguez is a good school,but it has some work to do... we need more teachers that will work with students and inspire them to try their hardest... we need people that will challenge us and not give us the easy "A" even if thats the easy way out

  • I think High School is the best years of a young adult's life, and of all the schools I went to meaning elementary, junior high; HIGH SCHOOL was the best time I had (At Dominguez). Whether a person was considered my enemy or great a friend. Everything was great. I have memories of Ms. Evelyn Jones (Rip) and Mr. Carr, Ms. Green (Business Teacher) I wonder how she is doing? and of course the principal Dr. Freeman. I believe is now running for City Counsel (?) or another position with the city. But it was Lovely, (Hint) High School is what you make it anyway.

  • It's a good school, depends if you are the student who is making a difference to make good grades and be a good student. It doesn't matter what school you go to, it matters what you do in school and what you get out of this school. Great Athletes, Academics and Leaderships.
