I love the school home of the trojans

Hi. I'm not a parent. I am a junior who will be graduating in the spring of 2007. Douglas High School has been one of the best things to happen to me. I know that the district and the school doesn't have very much money. Recently, we had a new track put in. It's amazing. Our music program would be better than it already is if we could get more people to join. But for the amount of people they have now, they are doing amazing. Art is excellent. We have so many people who are great artists. This year, Girls soccer made it to the first round of playoffs, great job ladies. The teachers do what they can to get us up to standards. They really work hard. All i can do is thank them for what they do. Parents are only involved mostly with sports, could use more involvement.

the quality of academics is good for the required stuff.. the extracurricular ones are a little shabby. music would be more available if there were more kids to play. art is VERY popular and learns how to be creative without a budget hardly at all. parents inlvolved with kids who want them to be usually.

Hi, I am not an parent, but I am a student at Douglas High. I will be a senior for the 2005-2006 year. I agree that Douglas is run down, but I have been to one of the best schools in the U.S. according to national standards, I believe that it doesn't amount to anything that Douglas has. At Douglas High there are clubs and classes such as Leadership that works their buts off to help improve the school. Also there is the International School Improvement Organization that has painted half of the rooms in the school and plans to complete the rest. This school has potential. It has some of the best teachers and best students that I have ever seen. They are motivated and talented. I have come all the way across the country and have found the best school that I could possibly attend. Thank you.

While it's true that this is a poor (money wise) school and we don't have much money to repair things, I think that this school is a great school to attend to! Almost all of the students know each other, it is a friendly eviornment for students and many of the teachers are outstanding. While I agree that the school does not spend its money in the best way, it's not like we have much money to do so with anyways.

This poor school. Very few parents are involved with this school, and if they are, then their children are in sports. extra-curricular activities are nil. The soocer program is left in the dust every year. This year the girls soccer team didn't have a coach for the first three practices. Drama in this school is being led by a senior. It is quite a lot of stress and she is not being properly praised for what she is doing. They have a half-done track so the track team has to practice at the ancient middle school track. Middle school kids often come over to help with band projects. This is a bad or a good thing. The teachers at this school undergo alot of changes every year, but are smart enough.

This school shows an exemplary amount of school pride. It is however not a choice school for anyone to attend. The district purchased a brand new elementary school that's state of the art while neglecting to even consider high school renovations. The community health room has a ceiling that has been caved in for over 3 weeks withot it's repair. The smell emaniating from the excess of mold and bacteria is grotesque. The school does nothing to promote the arts. Drama has been cut and reduced to a club, a club which is positively wonderful. It is host to a unique club known as the Inter School Improvement Organization. Thw club has made it a point to paint over the deteriotrating walls. Academics is not a supported subject in school. The teachers refuse to branch out of Leadership while recognizing students for their achievements, while they are bursting with smart pupils.

This school needs a bigger campus, bigger woods and metals shops, more electives for freshmen because I am one and theres not alot to choose from, turn down the cost of sports, and clean the walkways a little.
