The Douglas County School District is overall a great place to learn and a great community to be a part of. The academics are very good and there is a wide variety of classes to take and activities to participate in. Anything that you are interested in there is a club or sport to fulfill your interests. It is an overall very safe place to spend the week where you will feel cared for. Some of the downsides of the school district is the lack of adequate resources for teachers and students. This includes the amount of space in schools. Overcrowding is very common as incoming classes continue to grow in size. The hallways in the schools are very camped. Another thing that could be improved is the amount of working personnel dedicated to helping students understand the college process and the next steps after high school. However, despite’s these few short comings the school district is very good and continues to improve each year.

Douglas County is one of the most loyal and ever-changing districts that I, along with many others have come across. Each school in Douglas County has teachers who put in so much more time and effort into actually educating their children. A lot of school these days is about passing, not actual learning. It is very hard to find teachers, and systems that work to help kids learn and grow to prepare for life. Another positive about Douglas County is how involved it is! There are dozens of in and out of school events for kids to participate in, make new friends, get more athletic, grow in their passions, and just to keep busy! There are not a lot of other places that open up so many advantages like we get here. Altogether, there is so many wonderful pieces that comes together to create the masterpiece puzzle that we call Douglas County!
I had a really good high school experience at Douglas County High School. I attended there all four years and I enjoyed every single year. Douglas County definitely knows what it means to show school pride and embraces the motto "Everyone A Husky". Students look out for each other, teachers are supportive and awesome and it is a safe environment. Go Huskies!
