Freshman Family Meetings

We believe that student success is a collaborative effort between school and home. We meet with all freshman students and their families during the first semester of their 9th grade year. At this meeting we will:

  • Discuss your student's academic, career, post-secondary and extracurricular goals
  • Check in on how a student is transitioning to high school
  • Provide resources to help students be successful in their classes and in school
  • Develop a four-year plan of classes that align to your student's college and career goals

Academic Support

Dobson teachers want their students to succeed. All teachers have office hours and encourage students to get extra help in their classes (before school, after school, and during lunch (you have 40 minutes - use your time wisely!). If you are struggling in one or more of your classes, make it a point to see your teacher! One on one time with your teacher a few days a week will make a WORLD OF DIFFERENCE!
