Douglas County West Community Schools Reviews
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!
At DC West, I felt like we were all one big family. Due to our small numbers, everybody knew everybody. There was hardly a day that went by where i didn't enjoy going to school. All the teachers are incredibly friendly, and many of them are going to be lifelong friends. As a freshman, the culture around athletics at DC West was that we were bad and we couldn't change that, but my class has helped change that. As juniors, we had our first winning season in over a decade. The work that my classmates and I have put in has set the foundation for years of athletic success to come. If I had the opportunity to go to another high school, I would definitely choose DC West all over again; it is my home. Go Falcons.
Coming to DC West in 5th grade was necessary for me to be able to achieve my goals in sports. Although I didn't really have a choice at the time, I do not regret coming here. The small town feel is great, as you get to know all the students and you can create a good bond with the teachers. Personally, I love going to a small school, because it gives you endless opportunities, whether it be in sports or other extracurricular activities, such as One Act.
