Testimonials


"Donoho has given and we are thankful! It gave our children a place to feel at home when they moved to Anniston in grades 1, 4 and 5. Through the years, God has used Donoho in many ways in our lives. Most of the blessings have a face and name. 
A few others also come to mind. Our daughter's gift of leadership was sparked when Donoho chose her to participate in the YLCC program (Young Leaders of Calhoun County) in 11th grade. Donoho's football program lead my middle child to earn a scholarship to play at Berry College this Fall. The robotics program saw our youngest's dream become a reality when he made a beautiful electric guitar from a scrap of wood. Thanks, Falcon family!"

Because of Donoho's reputation for scholastic excellence, it was the only school we felt comfortable sending our children to when we first moved here. Now after having our eldest child graduate, we believe that the reputation is well deserved.

"I value the Donoho experience for our 3 kids as a former Donoho student. I want our children to have the best education along with many different opportunities to experience the arts program as well as the sports programs, and the extra clubs and programs that are offered at Donoho. The family atmosphere and staff make it the best choice for us. Thanks for the Donoho difference."

“I am currently enrolled in occupational therapy school and was shocked when one of my professors, who is also chair of the program, made a statement about the class’s overall (poor) quality on an important writing assignment. Most students write papers as if they are talking to a friend. I am proud to say I received a 100 on that assignment. Thank you to those who taught me English while a student at The Donoho School. I am thankful for the foundation of writing skills I received and the proper way to write a paper, which has led to my success in my undergraduate studies and now in grad school.”

“Today we toured The Donoho School because our son will begin attending in the fall. He will start from the very beginning in PK3 and follow in many great footsteps of people we know. He will be taught and mentored by an outstanding group of teachers that we have no doubt put every ounce of themselves into teaching the students and showing them how to grow up to be productive, well-educated young adults. You can literally feel the care and love that this school gives to each and every one of their students. This took away the fear we had of our son starting school. All of that weight was lifted off our shoulders after we finished up with the tour. A big "Thank you!" to Mrs. Canter for taking the time to go in each room in the school and explain what goes on. She made us feel so comfortable. It was truly a great experience, and I can not wait for our son to start attending The Donoho School!”

"As a native of Calhoun County, I have always respected the exceptional opportunities Donoho has provided to students of all ages. Now as a faculty member and parent, I have a new understanding and appreciation for the difference. As a parent, I am more than ever grateful for the chance my daughter has to be a part of Donoho. As a teacher, I am honored to work with a diverse background of motivated, well-rounded students sustained by engaging parents and families. Combined, these experiences have provided me with evidence that the Donoho difference is irreplaceable, and I am honored to be a part of the Donoho family."

“I want to take these last few minutes of freedom to thank everyone for all the support that I have received and am still receiving from Donoho. I missed the school ever since we concluded the night of graduation because it is a place that I will always love and remember for the rest of my life. Although I will be wearing the colors of black and gold for the Army, my heart will always be fully colored in the maroon that is Donoho. I can assure you that I will do everything I can to be successful at West Point, a place that I could never have dreamed of going to if not for the love and faith of every one in Donoho who has helped me achieve this goal.”

"Amazing... As I'm back in my old junior high and high school stomping grounds, I'm reminded of my immense good fortune to have had the most wonderful teachers, role models, helping hands, and generous hearts around me as I stumbled through my childhood here (Donoho). There are no words powerful enough to thank them for what they did for me... and meant to me. Thank God they were there... I am and will be forever grateful."
