Dorman is an excellent school. The teachers here are the best and really care about the students. There are plenty of opportunities to do well if the kids will take advantage of them. I love Dorman and wouldn't go anywhere else. It's like a big family.

It's a good school, but I've noticed alot of the students are pessimmistic and don't really care about much. The teachers try hard, but the students are the problem. Many parents aren't very involved

Dorman High school teachers are the best. They really care about the students and in addition to educating them, they instill so many good characteristics and qualities in the children. I am blessed to live in this area. It is large but the school is like a big family.

Dorman High School is too big. There is quite a large drug problems which the administration does a very good job of sweeping under the rug. I would not recommend this school.
