Eighth graders across Dougherty County got a real life experience of what high school will be like next year.

Students spent the night visiting the high school they will attend next year.

They had the chance to talk with teachers, take a tour, and ask questions.

"We're just kind of showcasing our programs helping them to understand the expectation here in high school because they'll be in our 9th grade academy and so this is the golden opportunity for our parents and our students to see what Dougherty High School is all about," said Jerome Register, Assistant Principal at Dougherty High School.
