39 Parent Reviews for Douglas County High School

This school is by far better than CV. I have been to both. I lasted until Winter Break at CV my Freshman year before transferring to DC. I am now a Junior. CV's academics and teachers are horrible. Don't send your child to CV if you want them to succeed in life. Go Huskies!!

Great Schools should post parents reviews together and student reviews in a different place. As a parent of a senior attending DCHS, I could not be happier with the administration and teachers. As a former teacher myself, I can distinguish a good teach from a not-so-good teacher. My daughter has been ...  Read more

Douglas County High School is no place for a teenager to grow and learn. I am a junior attending DC and quite frankly, its a pathetic excuse of a community. None of the teachers care about you, neither academically nor personally. And the administration is the worst. For the sake of your child and his/her ...  Read more

This school is amazing.. I have had two older sisters who have gone here and they said it was a VERY good school, so I'm happy to go here.

I have two students at DC. As a parent, I love it. I do not worry about them and they have done a wonderful job of educating my children. The staff is great and there is no other place I would rather have my kids go to school!

CV and DC are intense rivals, so don't pay any attention to the one-star reviews from CV-loving parents. In reality, academics and sports are stressed here, and there is a Huskie shirt, hat, or backpack everywhere you look. i always feel very safe here, and Officer Brinkworth is always nearby to give ...  Read more

Be careful what you read!!! I know many graduates from DC that have gone on to amazing Colleges and Universities, the academics at DC are very strong.
