This was an absolutely amazing school. Before attending Douglas I had been to three different schools. None compare to this one. The staff and teachers did whatever they could to make sure students were on track to graduate or pass a class starting freshman year. Everyone was very involved with the students allowing them to succeed. There are an immense amount of opportunities to get involved from Deca, leadership and a plethora of clubs and sports teams. I will never have one bad thing to say about this school. I had the best four years there and met people who changed my life. Thank you for such an amazing high school experience!
Review Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School
Lots of diverse of students. There is a lot of students here which sometimes feels stuffy around when going through hallways or during lunchtime in cafeteria or courtyard. There are many good teachers for honors and advanced placement classes but not so much on regular and below regular classes. Many good food in the cafeteria. Many staff people to help you out when you need help. It's hard to see your own guidance counselor which is why they tell you to make appointment and to not walk-in. They taught us how to register for voting, sign up for Bright Futures and FASFA which many schools don't do that! Overall, I think this is a good school because they provided us a lot of information to be prepare for college, and if we need help for personal issues, and good education.
I liked being able to see my friends, but the amount of students on campus was large compared to most high schools so it prepared me for the environment I'll be in for college. Many things about the school shoud be changed, such as providing more electives not just that of culinary, JROTC, robotics and DECA. The arts is also important and there should also be more classes that prepare students for the real world like life management classes. The football team sucks, focus on the other sports teams more since they're better. Fire the unqualified teachers and don't allow predators to remain on campus, sexual harassment shouldn't be taken lightly. Furthermore weeding out students that you can't teach and who fall below the 2.0 GPA requirement shows poor mentoring on the school's part and that they are too useless to handle a student so they send them away so they can be someone else's problem, and don't besmirch the school's status as an 'A' school.
