Douglas Middle School - 015

We love Douglas Middle School! My daughter is a 7th grade student at Douglas and lives being there. The Teachers are very attentive with each students teaching needs. My daughter is on an IEP. As soon as we enrolled her with all the proper documentation, it took no time at all to get her in the classes to accommodate her special needs!! The Kids love their Principal and he's always involved with the kids after school activities. He's always at a game cheering them on!! This school doesn't tolerate bullying of any kind!! Kids are constantly reminded about our school being a tobacco & drug free environment! The sports we have in the school is also amazing!! As a parent of two children , I highly recommend this school. Not only did we move to Box a Elder to enroll our kids in the school District for the best education, so did 3 other families we know!!! GO PATRIOTS!!
Not good, a lot of bullying goes on and nothing is done about it, ineffective administration. Some good teachers and some not so good. Not secure, front doors are open leading straight to the cafeteria, no security guards. Fights break out in the schoolyard and no teachers are present as they are supposed to be, I would not recommend this school in it's present state.
tis is the best school ive ever been to. i like the teachers they are very kind and supportive. i am in eigth grade and started in 7th here but i still think it is the best of all schhols ive ever been to. And hopefully i dont have to leave this district.
I was actually a former student at Douglas Middle school. I loved going there everyday. It was a fun and safe environment. The academics and sports were taught by very professional teachers. I never had a teacher I didn't like. The Douglas school district is a lot more sophisticated and organized compared to the schools I have attended in Hawaii. I wanted to show my appreciation by saying thank you very much and I miss DMS dearly!
