Douglas is a school that really care about the children and teaching them the skills they need to make it. sometimes the parents don't work with their children and there is only so much a teacher can do in a day with 16 + students in one classroom.


Posted November 11, 2008

This is by far the Most Horrible school! I had two nieces attend here several years ago and my sisters had to move to get them into better schools. Fast forward to now, my child attends this school and is so far behind. My child is 2 grade levels behind and i have brought this to their attention before. Just as long as my child attends school and they get their money they could care less about his education. I wish i would have thought more about the location of my house before i purchased it. I will with lots of Faith get my child out of this school! Upset Mommy:(
