Douglas Elementary Ratings & Reviews

Fantastic! My children thrived there, and they are totally opposite in needs and personality!

We trasferred our son into Douglas in the 2016-2017 school year, for 2nd grade and we are absolutely thrilled with our experience. Principal Burns is AMAZING, the teachers are kind, positive and supportive, the school environment is nurturing and engaging for students and the PTA is active and incredible. There is an organic garden, where students receive regular instruction, Lego walls, a musical playground, a creativity cave, think tank and the kids spend a lot of time outside. My son LOVES Douglas and we feel so lucky to be a part of this incredible school community. My son is thriving at Douglas in every way. Douglas won the award for #1 Magnet School in America in 2015-16 and we can easily see why. I highly recommend Douglas.

"We transferred our son in his first grade year and he has loved it. The curriculum is very engaging and he doesn't feel like he is doing ""work"" but he's still passing all of the milestones set by the district for his age. As parents we are very happy with our decision to move him to Douglas. I hate the parent from 4 years ago had such a bad run in with a teacher there because our experience with them has been quite the opposite. All the teachers my son has had and the ones we don't know we pass in the hallways have been very engaging and friendly. We highly recommend Douglas!"

Our kindergarten bound daughter started here a week ago and the experience has been terrific. She comes home tired but very happy and they are challenging her mind already. The questions she asks are far more creative and deep than they were just a few months ago. She has made new friends and looks forward to going every morning.

The staff is rude, unwelcoming, inpatient, and not helpful at all. I have not had a good experience with my son in this school so far and he was in Kintergarden. This year he will be in first grade and I want to switch him to another school, but I work so I need the bus to drop him off to the babysitters which is very close to Douglas. If it wasn't for this reason I would have switched him already. Teachers there are so rude and have no patience with the kids. Ifyour going to be a teacher and work with other peoples children you have to have patience and to love being around kids. I am so ready to get him out of this school.
