A school obsessed with grades, AP classes, honor classes, and majority Asian. Football team sucks and never wins, but god damn their badminton team and girls tennis team are on fire! You can walk down the hallway and hear 5 different conversations about classes, particularly AP and honor classes. If you haven't skipped a grade of math at DVHS, you sure as hell better be taking the honors of AP level of your "on level" math class to redeem yourself. Majority of the school is aiming to be a doctor or some kind of engineer. Majority of school hates being at Dougherty, and wishes for a less competitive school. Added bonus, your social status at school is determined by a simple decision: Grades vs Social Life, one puts you in the academic arena with no social life, the other puts you in the social hierarchy practiced by other schools where you will never be accepted as an equal in any AP or honor class by the other academic oriented kids.
Dougherty Valley High School kid: Hey Dougherty is a great school (in mind: not!)
Cal Kid: (Looks at friends then back at DVHS kid and laughs) You all have no social lives!
Cal Kid #2: Constantly going on about grades
Dublin High Kid: We beat your ass every year in football!

A school that is only filled with ASIANs and INDIANs. Everyone teaches them selves and the schools teachers get credit. The (white) kids who don't choose to practice violin and have no social life and teach themselves what the teachers should be teaching, look stupid. Most of the students are antisocial and are rude as fuck. If you have a decision of going to anyother school and Dougherty.... DONT GO TO DOUGHERTY.

It's a wonderful school that restricts traditional unhealthy behaviors such as the senior cut day and April Fools prank and encourages excellence exemplified by the rigorous academic competitions and a proud-worthy API score of 907. It is known for a cooperative administration, a specialized focus on standardized tests, and active treatments to student complaints.
"Have you heard about Dougherty Valley High School?"
"Of course. I would love to go there. People set such heroic goals for themselves. What I love the most about the school is that the staff reflects the ‘Dougherty Valley High School Expected School Wide Learning Results’ beautifully by treating all people equally and not holding any bias opinions against certain individuals.”
