School Reviews

2   5/18/2009
As a former student of Douglas High School I found and still find the way things are handled at that school no less than appalling. To start off, the availability of after school activities is pathetic. Unless your son/daughter is a rigorous athlete or business extraordinaire then they have nothing of value to offer them now. Computer related facilities are up to date and extremely nice but students are not allowed access to them without a teacher "checking them in". When it comes to public facilities like restrooms however, the quality goes down like you wouldn't believe. Parent involvement with the school is the worst of them all. Not only do parents need to sign in to be allowed on campus to even talk to a teacher or principal, but need to make it past a slew of security guards as well to get through the front gate. Did I forget to mention that the entire school is surrounded by an 8 foot steel fence? Go around to various parts of it and you'll see BARBED wire going across the top. There are more things that I have seen and experienced at that school which I could write about but that would take up a page or more. In short Douglas High School is no longer the symbol of honest academics that it used to be and should be avoided as much as possible. If your child must go that school for any reason than I urge you to not let those in charge pull the wool over your eyes and lock you out. It may be an undertaking but it will save you and your child years of trouble.
