My son told me in 7th grade he wanted to go to Douglass. His father and uncle attended Douglass. Thus far, our experience has been great. The principal is attentive to parents concerns, the teacher engage the students in their development. Douglass has the highest graduation rate in the county and the best IB program in the county. We are here because of the family atmosphere and programs being offered.
Overall, the extracurricular that Douglass offers are good and provide the students with other avenues besides academics. I love all that they offer and bring to all my kids.
