Douglas County School District Reviews

Douglas is a small town. The teachers make the work environment feel safe as well as make themselves available outside of school hours to ensure the success of their students. The curriculum is not overwhelming but does provide enough to prepare you for what to expect later on in life. The school quality overall is very clean and the faculty members definitely take pride in this. Finally, I believe that this school is in a setting where students are able to succeed in the classroom as well as in their day to day lives.

In the past few years, Douglas County School District has exceeded its goals in better educating and inspiring its students. They have always been extremely compliant and open to the public’s opinion. This school district is beyond phenomenal.
I just graduated from Douglas, this school was pretty great met a lot of people made a whole bunch of friends. One thing I would change about the district is they should change the way the teachers teach. One teacher I really admired and really looked forward to being in his class everyday was Mr. Stone, Rob Stone. This is a teacher I would really recommend to students by the way he taught us about life and told us what it was really going to be like.
