Beginning in the 2011-12 school year, and continuing in 2013-2014, Kentucky administered the End-of-Course (EOC) assessments. EOCs are tests given to public high school students when they complete a course to assess their knowledge of important course concepts. They are similar to a final exam, except that they are created and scored by an outside testing company, ensuring that the tests are both rigorous and aligned with state and national college readiness standards.

    I really like DHS I've been a student there ever since my first year there. There are some pretty good teachers there and everything is great. They could definitely clean up better though and make the lunch schedules more fair. I've had third lunch and its packed too many people. Many students end up having to throw away their lunch unless they have a teacher that lets them eat during class.

    I really like this school I was a little worried about my son going to Doss but now that hes in Doss he loves it. This is his second year and the staff is wonderful about helping out if we have questions. When they say dont judge a book by its cover. Well them same about Doss dont judge Doss High School if you have never been a student there
