I love Douglass High School and I would not mind bringing my kids back to go to school in Douglass. Two year ago, Douglass got remodeled and it is 100% more safe now. The school also got remodeled on the inside and the set up of the classroom and administration offices is very convenient for the teachers and students. The teachers have always been very well at making sure that we, as students, understand what they are teaching and all of the teachers make sure to be involved in our lives. They also will get involved in the student activities which makes them really great! Douglass is a 3A school, which is decently small, but we have amazing facilities that are kept very well kept and clean. We have better facilities than most other schools, even 4A. I am very blessed to say that I am going to be in the Douglass High School's graduating class of 2019.

Douglass High School is full of friendly students. The teachers are very dedicated to their work and genuinely care about their students. One downside is that because it is a fairly small school, there aren't many advanced classes (only one AP class is offered). But overall, Douglass is a very close community with relatively little drama. One of the best characteristics of this school is that the people at Douglass High are accepting of any and all people; anyone can find a place to belong in this school.
Our school for the most part has a great staff that cares about each kid and wants to see us do our best. We just finished remodeling our school so everything is new and clean! In our school I would love to see our school spirit change. We have about half of the school that has so much school pride you almost forget about the other half but looking at game attendance is nothing to what I think we could have.
