The best 3 years! I came to Douglass when I was in the 10th grade. The students were kind of hard on me at first, but once they got to know me then I was good go. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had some of the best teachers I've had in my life. The experience was just wonderful.
My experience was alright. Only HALF of the teachers where trustworthy and easy to talk to when it comes to the students. We need people who can talk to and trust. Now the school has A WHOLE NEW everything including teachers, administration, And coaches, so it will be a rough year.
