SDES is a wonderful school. The staff and administrators are knowledgeable and care about their students. We have never had a problem addressing any concerns that we may have. Parents are expected to help their kids w/assignments. The P.E., Art & Music dept are all great.

My youngest child will be leaving South Douglas this year, and is my last child to go through SDES. It has been a great six years.

South Douglas is a Great School. They get little money & they use it properly. They do have problems with buses breaking down and out-dated air-conditioning, that can be very loud and distracting, but their test scores and parent ratings are extremely high. The School is well established. It's been around ...  Read more
