Last year, Donna Pittman, Doraville Mayor, was interviewed on NPR where they discussed a Doraville Cluster among other things.
“I would love to see a high school in our city” says Mayor Pittman. “It brings a sense of community and our children on that side of Buford Highway go a very long way. It is very hard for them to participate in activities, after school activities because they have no transportation. So, I think it would be fabulous to see a high school in our city.”

Doraville Deserves a High School
Doraville deserves a high school because Distance and Transportation Matter. Doraville deserves a high school because “Community” Matters. Doraville deserves a high school because being able to “participate in activities” matters. Doraville deserves a high school because every other city has a high school within their city limits except Doraville.
Doraville and the community within its borders must no longer be ignored. The Doraville community has been carved up and isolated in silos far removed from their close-knit community. They should get what every other city already has and not just a band aid.
