Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Reviews

My experience at Marjory Stoneman Douglas has definitely been out of this world and will, without a doubt, be unforgettable. Going into high school was a frightening experience for me, especially because I did not attend the middle school that fed into it meaning that I did not know a lot of people. Thankfully, as a cross country runner, I had met the team prior to beginning high school so I was going into school knowing a handful of students. The first day that I arrived at practice, was the first of many significant dates that would forever change my life. The coaches and the runners were all so welcoming, and were also very helpful when it came to getting advice about classes and tips for high school. Not only did I have a very successful cross country and track season, but I also made friends who have stuck with me since. However, sports is just a small part of what makes Stoneman Douglas great. There's amazing staff and endless extracurriculars and opportunities!

My years at Marjory Stoneman Douglas have been nothing but memorable. Though there were some complications and tragedies that occurred and disrupted my learning, the staff and community never gave up on us. Classes were always welcoming, accommodating, and educational. Teachers were understanding, caring, and willing to cooperate with students. There was also no shortage of friendly faces and potential friends. If science is your thing, there were always interesting and engaging labs that allowed for teamwork and leadership skills to develop naturally. Unique and interesting projects that helped develop these skills were common and amazing to participate in. There was no shortage of electives or clubs which allowed for everyone to find their interests and their friend groups. Administration also improved drastically this past year which allowed us to have more freedom as well as more enjoyable experiences such as costume contests for Halloween. Overall, my experience was amazing.
Great experience. Though we had our struggles and tragedy, there was tremendous school spirit and pride. I developed amazing friendships that will last for years, and the strong focus on education helped me get into one of my dream colleges!
