Not so good, a lot of bullying and not much done about it, some good teachers, but also some that should not be teaching. Ineffective administration, I would not recommend this school in it's present state.

I love Douglas High School. This has been the most family orientated school i have ever known. My kids came to Douglas in their middle school years from being in a gang/drug ridden school with a book ratio of 8/1 . My kids flourished and realized that learning was fun! I have one graduated and one on the way there. Thanks so much for putting the love of school back into their hearts and minds.

I absolutley love my school. It is the greatist school in the world. And the staff actually care about us students, and each other. And they really know how to work together to make sure we are getting the best education possible. GO PATRIOTS!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Dakota used the Dakota State Test of Educational Progress (Dakota STEP) to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in reading and math. The Dakota STEP is standards-based, which means it is aligned to South Dakota's educational standards and measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state. The standards-based Dakota STEP results are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
