Very good staffing and they really care about kids getting their education. I attended my entire high school career here at Douglas County. I’m proud to be a Douglas County tiger. There’s no doubt about if you need any help at that school they’ll give it to you. From the principal, the teachers, counselors, and even students. At Douglas county high school they all stick together ! I recommend going to this school they have very good programs and so much more to offer!

Douglas County High School is a great school! We have an awesome International Baccalaureate (IB) program and wonderful teachers to match. The band is the best in the county. The facilities could be cleaner though. However, the front of the school is maintained very well.
The IB program at the school offers some teachers that are excellent, and others that are not prepared to teach IB. Complaints about teachers seem to be ignored instead of addressed. The school sometimes seems to value sports and extracurriculars over actual education. The foreign language department is excellent, but areas such as math, science, and lit need improvement. The band, chorus, and theater programs need to be better financially supported, and issues surrounding the IB program need to be addressed and dealt with.
