For 11th Grade Families-

On Tuesday, April 3, 2018, the ACT will be administered to all Dobyns-Bennett juniors, except those who have already taken an ACT on a national Saturday testing date and do not wish to test on April 3. If a student has not taken the ACT prior to March 2018, he/she must test on the April 3 test date. (Note: Students with ACT approved accommodations will test during the week of March 26.)


If you are a student who has previously taken the ACT and do not wish to test on April 3, please see Mrs. Emmette in Room E220 by Friday, February 23. Students who do not contact Mrs. Emmette by February 23 will be registered for the April 3 test (or earlier accommodations test).

College Certificate Opportunity through Northeast State in Downtown Kingsport!

Dobyns-Bennett has an exciting opportunity for students to enroll in a Career Academy in Machine Tool Operations spring 2018! Students will have the opportunity to earn both a college certificate and 31 college credit hours toward a degree while in high school and possibly enter the workforce upon graduation as a certified Machine Tool Operator. Currently, Machine Tool Operators have the potential of earning $25-$30 an hour in our region ($50,000-$55,000 per year). Classes will be held at the Regional Center for Advanced Manufacturing (RCAM) downtown Kingsport. Students will attend classes during A block with transportation provided to and from RCAM if needed.


This is a joint venture between Dobyns-Bennett High School and Northeast State Community College as a tuition-based program and those enrolled will have the opportunity to take part in the program tuition free! Students will apply for the Federal Pell Grant and they will also be eligible to receive additional grant monies through the TN Dual Enrollment Grant and the Sullivan County Career Readiness Scholarship.
