Douglas County School District No. RE-1 Reviews
I was lucky enough to have some of the greatest teachers and coaches I could have asked for. They were kind, understanding and dedicated to bettering the lives of students. They weren't they because they wanted to make money and go home, they were there to help us become well-rounded and educated citizens. They truly wanted to set us up for the best possible life. The only downfall of Douglas County is its Board of Education. Over the years the people in charge have been money-hungry and destroyed our County from the inside. Schools no longer have updated technology and facilities are dwindling. Teachers aren't being paid fairly and the upper level administration is taking all of the money our families are pouring into these schools. Love the teachers, hate the BOE.
Nice campus although rooms are always too hot or too cold. There's a decent amount of security guards and a police man so it feels fairly safe. The teachers are a hit or miss and some of the rules they attempt to enforce are unfeasible. They refuse to fire teachers even when they have a bad reputation among multiple students. The events held are nice and usually fun, and the drug problem is minimal. I just wish they would fire some teachers because some have TERRIBLE reputations among the students and some are biased and malicious in their grading, plummeting my GPA.
The teachers are very friendly and the counselors are ready to help students with anything. Students respect each other and participate in many fun school events. School spirit is strong. DCHS is an amazing supporter of Make a Wish Foundation, each year they spend a week raising money for children with terminal illnesses. The whole school is more than happy to participate and support the foundation. To help students connect there is a camp - Camp DC- which allows students to open up about their struggles and make life-long friends.
