I graduated from Frederick Douglass High School in 1982. I am a very active alumnus. The school still has so much to offer for the current students.

I went to Douglas back in the early 80's and it was very well structured. We had great teachers that did play, the principals were like our Fathers. But we had a lot of fun, pep rally's, we did musicals and we just had nice clean fun. Being in High School back then was fun and very educational. A lot of us are still great friends. It was truly a great experience.

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. Parents need to get involved and support the school Come and visit and see what you can do to help build the school back. It can happen but we need your support. Remember in numbers we have the power.

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 and it seem as if only one counselor truly cared about the student (Mrs. Strickland). Honestly the school needs a more efficient principal such that of Dr. Horton who characteristics were far beyond true leadership.

I am a student at doug. . I am ashamed to tell people the school I go to. I really wIsh that I was going to another school any EXECPT Douglas. when we had our homecoming prep rally people didnt even want to sing the school song and the past students were looking very disappointed. I thought Douglas was going to be a good school because of the things i heard but as i was up there its nothing like it!
