Douglas county schools vary. I've had great experiences with some teachers, and poor experiences with other teachers. I only went to Chapel Hill High, and New Manchester High. I feel the schools are getting much better overall though. I'm grateful to say, there haven't been any school shootings at any Douglas county school. I will say when I failed some portions of my GHSGT, Chapel Hill High School worked with me so I could take math summer classes and re-took the math portion and passed! I then had another program where I took summer social study courses for the GHSGT and successfully passed. I feel they are very supportive to students that are struggling with certain areas.

Hi, I am a senior enrolled in a Douglas County School. One great thing about my school is that there is always an adult there that you grow a bond with, they may not even be your teacher. All the schools in Douglas County are in close proximity, which means you have a high probability of running into somebody from school anywhere you go. I’d like to see many things change in my school system. We need a more diverse group of teachers. In my school there are very few black teachers and it makes some students feel very awkward. None of our principals are of colors and makes others feel as if huge favoritism is shown. Our schools cleanliness is very horrible. Some days you may find roaches crawling on the wall and ants crawling all over your desk, even in the classrooms that don’t allow food. Some of the staff can be very rude as if they do not want to be there. Very few teachers actually try to get to know their students and learn what ways work best for them.
The school system is great! Very nice people everywhere to always help! The teachers are all very into students need to learn! Most kids enjoy going to school because there is a fun learning environment. The sports at all the schools are outstanding. All of the schools are very competitive all season.
