What I liked the most of Douglas High School is quality of teacher that it has. I had excellent English and Math teachers that motivated me to pursue a college career. Douglas High School has a very proper and professional administration that helps the student development be academically outstanding. Dr. Andrea Overamn, the Principal at Douglas High School, motivates each student to work hard to their goals and ambitions. I am a firm believer that the more engaged you are with school clubs, organizations, and staff, the more you are open to new opportunities, and that is precisely what Douglas High School embraces. Once a Bulldog always a bulldog!

Although I do learn a lot of material from my teachers and peers, I know this school can do much better. The activities and extra-curricular offered are excellent and I enjoy participating in them. There are mostly Hispanics at this school, due to the reason that it is in a border town. The school does offer a college readiness class on Fridays and it helps students know more about things like FAFSA and other scholarships.
Douglas High School has given me an amazing experience in my four years attending, with it's amazing students, teachers, and overall staff, it's an amazing school to attend. Clubs, with there being plenty, anyone can fit in to any type of group because at Douglas high School there is a club for everything, no one is left out. The academics, though they aren't the very best, they do give you everything you need and will need in the the future, one does not leave unprepared at Douglas High School.
