I've taught at several elementary schools in this particular district, my children have attended another, so I have a lot to compare. Douglass is by far the best of all the elementary schools which I can legitimately address. The teachers are deeply concerned about their students' educational progress. Non-homeroom faculty are also greatly vested in our students, working hand in hand with the classroom teachers. The staff are caring and open, very welcoming of all who come to visit. The administration (principal and assistant principal, Mr. Barraza and Ms. Dwyer, respectively) are top notch. They too are every bit as committed to the students as are the faculty and staff, all the while not losing sight of all employees. They run the school superbly, directing first with their heads--having the interests of the students at the forefront, but also with their hearts, from the longest employed person to the student who just enrolled two minutes ago. There are many activities at Douglass, from archery to chess to rocket science (literally!). Douglass has also earned the national distinction of being a Blue Ribbon School. Go Dragons!
