One of the worst conducted schools i’ve ever seen. The administration side of this school has been ran down ever since one left that kind of carried the whole team. If you want your child to be made fun of, spat in face, bullied and have some of the worst learning environments then this is the school for you!

Overall I’ve had a very good experience at DC West. I’m a current senior and have been here all 4 years. I moved to Omaha before starting my freshman year and I was welcomed by the teachers, staff, and students. The support I got from everyone made the change very easy and has made it a good place for me. I’ve been able to participate in sports and still be able to keep my grades up thanks to the teachers at the school
Douglas County Community Schools are a great small town school district. All the teachers are very involved and invested in making sure the students are actually learning and comprehending lessons. The environment is never negative and students are always smiling or laughing in every classroom. More than half of the high school is involved in extracurricular activities, which is phenomenal!
