The academic choices are very good, along with the teachers, but there are always exceptions. There is a large variety of student-run clubs from Coding Club to Psychology Club. The school is like a family even though it has a large population, probably because of the tragedy that brought people together. The sports are very good and the resources are too. There is a large parent involvement in music programs like band and Robotics. The diversity is and overall college readiness are excellent, with an option for trade school. Science, technology and math are exceptional with Coding Club, Robotics, Mu Alpha Theta, National Technical Honor Society and other clubs, as well as computer science electives are offered up to AP Computer Science A, and engineering classes up to Engineering 5. The food and facilities are poor, with the restrooms often not having working sinks and and often being closed, and the food is not good. The administration was changed, and is not received well.

While something well known did occur at my school, is it truly an amazing place-even now more than ever! My education and success always comes first but more importantly when everything happened my safety came first! Our programs are amazing such as my drama program-allowing us to perform at the Tonys! I couldn’t be more grateful for the school I was gifted in to.
I attended this school during the Valentine's Day tragedy and the following year. Since that event, many revisions have been made: students were forced to wear clear bookbags and IDs at all times, on-campus police and security increased exponentially, all entrances/exits were sealed by tall fences and gated double doors, suspicious-looking bags were subject to search and seizure, cameras were placed at every crevice and corner, etc. School resembled a prison, rather than a learning environment. Inside the red gates, I lose my right to freedom and privacy. Administration said that their new implementations serve to protect all students and staff, but in reality, they were put in place to appease concerned parents and the media. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High is a heavily monitored cage.
