Very good school! Prep for college is great! I graduated as scholar elite, was in honor society and got a 28 on ACT because of the education and preparation for taking the test.

This school is my home. I absolutely love it! Its not perfect has a lot of drama, but what high school doesn't? I love the people the teacher's and the education. I will always consider this place home for me
Douglas High School does very well with letting kids participate in sports, clubs, etc. My favorite things about Douglas were being apart of the AV (Audio Visual) Club, FBLA (Future Business Leaders of America), Choir, and Spanish Club. I made so many friends through each club. The main thing I would like to see changed in the school is how students get treated differently from the Vice Principal. She tends to favor those that play sports over those that do not.
