Yes, I agree with most of the comments. Douglass truly staring falling ince Mr. Brown became the Principal. We went to the board and Dr. Augustine last year regarding him and they would not listen. We will now select a new Prinicipal and we all have to support in bringing the school back to order. ...  Read more

Seriously, the principal hit lucky on a million dollars and decided that he was going to leave. Although Mr. J. Austin-Brown wasn't doing so great in the leadership department he still had a role as the principal of a school that isn't getting great reviews. Since I was in Douglass the school was unorganized ...  Read more

This school has fallen down. The principal has no control over the school. Teacher moral is low and many are trying to leave the school. It is a shame for a school that was once a High School of Excellence.

I graduated from Douglass in 2007 and I can honestly say that there was a dramatic change when Mr. Brown arrived my senior year. Everything changed and he just seemed as if he was afraid of taking charge. He acted as if he never had a role that required leadership skills. Now my little sister goes to ...  Read more

My daughter went to FDHS and graduated 2007. My son is a senior who will graduate 2009. In the beginning, under the direction of Dr. Horton, I was inspired and excited about my children attending. Dr. Horton was a man who got things done and his staff followed suit. Unfortunately, when Mr. Brown came ...  Read more

My daughter went to Douglass for 9th & 10th grade. Certain people in the front office staff are VERY RUDE and try to treat parents like children and the new principal, Mr. Brown, talks a lot of good game about changing things in the school, but nothing has changed yet. When my daughter was having problems ...  Read more
