Welcome to the Dothan City Schools Website ::

Our mission is to empower all students for the choices and challenges of the twenty-first century.  We believe that we should teach students to respect themselves, others, and the environment, that we should teach students to participate productively and responsibly in a rapidly changing society, that we should teach them to communicate effectively, that we should teach them to use cooperative and independent learning strategies, that we should teach them to apply problem solving processes, and that we should teach them to set and meet high standards.

Science Fair at ACOM

Dothan City Schools middle school students had the chance to show their interests and creativity at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) on Friday, February 13, 2015. About 60 science fair projects were on display and around 90 DCS students presented projects either individually or in groups. Science fair projects tested students’ ability to think and reason and also employed their writing and speaking skills. Winners will have the opportunity to advance to the regional and state Science fair events. Congratulations to all of the students who participated.
