David Douglas School District Reviews

From my experience, David Douglas is not my cup of tea. The way most of the teachers treat the students is unfair, there are only some teachers who understand students well. Some of the staff in the office looks like they don't even want to be there and treat students as if they're elementary schoolers. Also, the teachers there can't teach. For instance like math teachers who is little help to students when implying that it's the student's fault for not understanding or asking enough questions that they're failing the class. Teachers should really look at majority of the student's grades before saying it's not their fault for not teaching well. Phones have been a strict policy. However, my friend and I were sitting at a table when a teacher accused her of being on her phone when she wasn't. My friend also witnessed a staff forcing to take away student's phones. Diversity is the strongest thing we have at our school. But I cannot think of one single positive thing about my school.

Today if there is any institution which has the greatest influence on us after the family, it is the school. The time that I spend in school are not only time spent in learning and filling our minds with knowledge, but also time spent forming our character, acquiring various attitudes and imbibing basic principles of life. For me, DDSD is the best experience in my life
I think David Douglas is a very nice school it’s really big and there is a lot of students. It’s a very diverse school and it has a variety of different classes that can interest every student. The only issue would be that it is too crowded during pass time it’s hard to get to your class because there are so many people bumping you and just standing in the middle of the hallway. Also the cafeteria is very crowded during lunch. Other than that the teachers are all very amazing they are all very nice and caring.
