Douglas County School District Reviews

I graduated from Douglas high school in 2013, during my 3 years at this school i formed close friendships with my teachers and other students. The teachers here taught me a lot about how to get through the rest of my life, though I wish they would have offered classes on taxes, credit, and budgeting. These classes could have ensure my success in life after high school.
Review Douglas County School District
We have a really good county they care about their community and the people. Douglas county also puts on event for the schools and community. For example Douglas High School recently had Mike Smith a guest speaker come to our school and talk to us because the Douglas county sheriffs department sponsor his visit. Douglas county also outs on events for our community like movies in the park and it really brings our community together when events are planned by the county.
I like Douglas High School. They have great opportunities and offerings.
I like that they offer welding, auto, and agriculture programs.
I wish they offered more languages besides Spanish and French.
