19 Parent Reviews for Douglas Byrd High School

A school can have a great administration and a wonderful teaching staff but it is all for nothing if PARENTS do not send their children to school ready to learn. Parents are the child's number one teacher and bears the BULK of responsibility for their child's educational experience and attainment. I ...  Read more

A lot of negative things have been said about DBHS. But the main people complaining, are the parents!! You have to go to the school to understand how great of a school it really is. There's something for everybody. Clubs, arts, sports; you name it. Some people just don't apply themselves so the missout ...  Read more

This school is so behind in teaching things that 9-12 should be learning. I blame Douglas Byrd Middle School.

I am a returning sophomore at DBHS. I have to say that although Douglas Byrd has it's faults (and I challenge you to name a school that dosen't) it's still a energetic learning environment. The teachers here (the ones I have encountered at least) are dedicated to the success of their students. And, for ...  Read more

Douglas Byrd doesn't even deserve one star. I agree with that parent, Douglas Byrd is terrible and why in the world do they keep a Principal that doesn't even meet with parents, or even put rules or regulations down in the school. The children fight and curse and this is why the teachers take off more ...  Read more

The school needs a lot of work, meaning the teachers are rude the school has at least a fight a day. For the person that wrote that the school is great maybe in your dreams. Wake up people the school is terrible and this is why the children have the biggest drop out rate out of any other school in Cumberland ...  Read more

I'm heading into 9th grade at Douglas Byrd High School. Only because I got redistricted from Jack Britt to now Douglas Byrd. But, as of now I don't find the school appealing to go to in any form. First, the so called "open house" was unorganized. There was only mentors there and no teachers! So I couldn't ...  Read more

I ask about sitting in on my child's classes I was told that the teacher had to give me permission first. Sounds like they don't want you to be a part of your child's education.Makes you wonder what they are trying to hide. I ask about having lunch with my child and was told they had to see if parents ...  Read more

I am an '05 alumni of Douglas Byrd and I am about to graduate from WSSU on the 09May09. The success of the students after they graduate is not measured on this web page and that is what I think is most important. Nobody outside my family and that school ever thought I would make it to this point. The ...  Read more
