David Douglas High School Reviews
David Douglas High School is overall great. The diversity is awesome and everyone gets along with each other. David Douglas offers classes that students are actually interest in like athletic competition, art, ceramics, and much more. David Douglas also offers classes to prepare for the future! PACE, for example, prepares us for job interviews. The school’s college and career center is very helpful to us seniors. The staff in there helps us with the process of college applications, fafsa, and scholarships. On the contrary, the math teachers are probably the one thing I would change about David Douglas. During my junior year, 2017-2018, a lot of my class failed algebra 2 and had to either retake it in the semester or during senior year due to the teachers’ teaching ways. Overall, I would say David Douglas is a very good, diverse, and fun school to be at.
David Douglas is the biggest high school in the state of Oregon! It's awesome and I love it! You should come. There aren't very many fights, most people and teachers are respectful if you mind your own business, and best of all, there is a cafe and a school hospital. We also have a huge pool. You are safe at this school. We always have police officers and if we don't everyday, there is about 4-5 security guards patrolling the campus
I believe it's one of the most populated schools in Oregon with about 3-4 thousand students. Their best aspect is probably their pride in sports and diversity. As for teachers, there are many hidden gems, but unfortunately there are also teachers who lack passion/quality in their work. I was not involved in sports as a student, so I felt very small during my time at the school. However, with so many people in the school, it is not difficult to find a sense of belonging. Education is so-so, I feel like their advanced/honors classes definitely prepare you more for the real world.
