During my time in David Douglas High School I have met a ton of people. With over 3,000 students, it is inevitable to make friends. The students are kind and accepting as it is one of the most diverse schools in Oregon. I'm Hispanic and female, but not once did I feel like I was a minority among my peers. The teachers are also very nice and easy to build relationships with. There are many teachers who make their students feel comfortable and safe while also being their friend. David Douglas also has a fair amount of clubs and extra curricular activities you can join or even begin yourself! The only criticism I would have is against the administrators, I feel as though they do not put their students' best interest at heart. They decide what is best for the school rather than the kids attending it. I also feel as though they under prepared me for college, they have a college center, but they don't do much except tell you to go on their website.
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.
I think this is a okay high school, It's very diverse and the environment is very friendly. There are some circumstances where the students or teachers fail to give you a good experience. The classes are very typical and similar to an stereotypical class of high school. The classes aren't exactly amazing, students have to seat in uncomfortable and hard seats for hours, Sleep deprivation is a big problem, and students tend to have low expectations for the classes. The cafeteria food isn't really good either. 85% of the things you learn in your classes are completely useless for the majority of students.
