sadly to say this school wouldn't be as highly ranked without the IB program ... my child is not currently in the IB program and I'm not proud to say that because they had a chance to do it but chose not to . the teachers that are not part of the program give 0 effort and I absolutely do not like the faculty . I find them unfair to certain kids . I also feel as my child is very unsafe here and we are moving soon . but i will thank the principle and one of the assistant 9th grade principles for helping us through this tough time with my child being bullied and helping us sort out our options . that means so much to my family . I can't thank them enough . God Bless .

I am very disappointed with this school and the chaos Leadership allows. I was under the impression that this school would be top notch seeing that DCHS has an IB program. Little did I know how many IB students drop out of the program before the 12th grade. If that's not bad enough, I was very disappointed in the athletic programs (football in particular). The Coaches do not focus on the athletes academics but on winning games and sadly enough I haven t seen any improvement since my child graduated last year. The football coaching staff is a joke. Their coaching style includes encouraging fighting amongst teammates to promote what they call healthy frustration which makes the players hit harder. What happened to teaching the players how to be a TEAM. To make matters worse, the athletes morale is low. Having watched young men feel like quitting what is a lifetime dream because of the lack of leadership and inequality being displayed is disappointing. Having watched how the Leadership will allow parents to be deputized as coaches and show favoritism is degrading and unethical.I would advise more fathers to get involved by volunteering as a Community Coach (see GHSA website)

Iv'e spent my last 3 years of high school at Douglas County and I can certainly say this school has came a long way due to our wonderful loving principal Tim Scott. However although we have came a long way there are still issues at hand ! I love being a senior here because honestly there is greater school in the county than DC !!!

I am thorughly impressed with the leadership at this school. We were apprehensive in sending our son here after moving from another state, but the personal involvement and approach that the principal has leaves parents with a sense of relief and pride. The great schools rating was 3 out of 10 in June 2012, and went to 6 out of 10 which demonstrates and says a lot about hard this school has improved. I personally think that parents need to give a school a chance before making assumptions like we almost did. Our son loves it so far and I hope it continues to stay this way. Great job for turning this school around, teachers, staff, students and leadership. Definitely takes a village to raise a child and this concept is working beautifully!

I had a great experience at Douglas County. The teachers were excellent and helped me to get to where i am today. I am now in my second year at the University Of Georgia and can say that I would not be where I am today if it were not for DC. Go Tigers!

I love the way the staff supports the students and parents to encourage thos students that are truly applying themselves. The staff make you feel welcomed when you enter the building and they do all that they can to help you and your child to succeed in high school.

I love dchs, i think its a really good school. Y husband [coahc hurst] and myself [mrs. Hurst] have a great time teaching the students and everyday we have fun with the kids and they have a great time with us right back. Me myself personally enjoys waking up every morning just to come and see my babies. Likewise with my husband.

Douglas County is a great school. The school has many different extracurricular activities to chose from. The administration is good and the teachers are excellent. The school is great at communicating with parents. It definately is the best school in the county.

I feel poorly for the parents who actually claim to like this school...seems they don't have anything with which to compare quality

I find Douglas County to be a poor excuse for a high school. We relocated here from upstate NY. My daughter is a senior this year and she has to fight to get everything she needs to prepare for college next year. I have had to make several phone calls to back up her diligence. I have a 13yr old son, I have no intention of sending him to this school next year. Compared to the schools we came from in NY, Douglas County High is a joke.
