I have been in David Douglas for 3 years now, it is such a good school with a variety of things. The thing I like about this school is the diversity with many people came from many different background. They have different culture, they speak different language which make the school really unique. Even though, everyone came from a different background but together, WE ARE DOUGLAS!

I am been to this school for almost four years and I love it! The school is very diverse and it prepares you well for college. I am a person who loves to give back to the community and David Douglas offers a lot of programs that make differences in the community-which I really appreciate! Lastly, it is a school that cares about student’s education and pushes us to succeed in everything we aim to achieve.

David Douglas offers a lot of extracurricular activities! There are a ton of different clubs that are easy to get involved in. In addition to the clubs, David Douglas hosts the SUN after school program. SUN offers a lot of classes varying from yoga classes to guitar classes. Finally, David Douglas goes above and beyond by providing school bus transportation when these activities end about an hour and a half after the regular school day.
