My experience at Douglass was great and unlike anything I've ever done. I had went to another high school before I transferred to Douglass, and I definitely enjoyed Douglass more. I learned a lot and I saw a lot. Douglass taught me how to be a better person, how to communicate effectively, give back to my community, and most importantly, how to be a great leader. One thing I would change about Douglass would be the teaching staff and faculty. Some teachers were awesome and some teachers didn't enjoy their job. It would be awesome to see everyone come to work with smiling faces and a burning passion to prepare the students as best as they can for the future. Education is the most powerful tool anyone can possess, so it shouldn't be taken lightly.

Douglass is a great High School with an amazing community and a good environment. But like every other school, there are setbacks. We don't have as many resources and the bad reputation we have keeps us from gaining as many opportunities.
Douglass doesn't have the things that other schools have. They don't have a lot of class choices or a lot of sports. But going to Douglass is an experience I wouldn't change for the world. Most of us there are like family & we usually have each other's back. Douglass isn't perfect, but I love it.
