New Principal's introduction

Dear Parents & Guardians of Dominguez High School,

My name is Caleb Oliver and I have been appointed to serve as Principal of Dominguez High School for the 2020-2021 school year. This is my 13th year in the Compton Unified School District where I began as a secondary math teacher. During my tenure, I've also served as district math curriculum specialist, high school assistant principal, and middle school principal. As a citizen of Compton all my life, what drives me to continue in this work is my love for the people of Compton.

We will open the school year with distance learning, meaning students will work from home daily. I know that you have questions and concerns about what school will be like.

All of our lives will be greatly impacted as students continue to learn from home. I want you to know that you are the community I love and am here to serve. I am committed to ensuring that students prosper through this ordeal and arise from it stronger than ever. Dominguez Dons will continue to learn and meet their goals of college and career readiness.

Please check your Parent Square notifications, text messages, voicemails, and home mailboxes DAILY for communication from me and the school. Send me an email at if you would like to have further conversation. I am here for you.

Be safe and hopeful!

Caleb Oliver, Principal

About Our School

About Us

Dominguez High School is named after Don Manuel Dominguez, a California rancher. Dominguez inherited from his father Jose Cristobal Dominguez over 75,000 acres which was originally granted to his father's uncle Juan Jose Dominguez by the King of Spain in 1784. The land holding covered an area that ran from Redondo Beach into the west, to Compton in the east and the harbor in the south. The rancho spread across a territory that comprises neighborhoods that are now Compton, Gardena, Carson, Redondo Beach, Torrance, Palos Verdes Estates, Lomita, Rolling Hills Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, San Pedro, Wilmington, Harbor City, and part of Long Beach.

Dominguez is known for having one of the most outstanding football teams in Southern California. Its main rival is Lynwood High School. The football team was led by coach Willie Donerson and his son Keith Donerson for over thirty years. It forms a part of the CIF Southern Section, and San Gabriel Valley League. The Dominguez Football team has produced many NCAA and NFL football players such as Greg Townsend, Richard Sherman, Jeron Johnson, Bruce Walker and Chilo Rachal. The Dominguez basketball team also has a strong tradition, having produced NBA players such as Cedric Ceballos, Tyson Chandler, Brandon Jennings, Dennis Johnson and Tayshaun Prince.
