Dorsey High School

Los Angeles, CA

From outside appearances, Dorsey High School looks successful. Visitors appreciate the two grand trees distinguishing the school’s quad, the immaculate grounds, the friendly student body, the dignified staff, and the welcoming administration. Like many large comprehensive high schools in LAUSD, however, the school struggles. Approximately half of the school’s students fail to graduate. An exciting plan is in the works to improve student achievement.
