TeamDouglass is committed to buffing our students until they shine.  Upon graduation from Douglass High School, not only will you be academically equipped but we will work with you to work on your character as well.  Douglass HS is a small learning environment where students are called by name and loved on purpose!  We pride ourselves in knowing the names of all our students and creating a counter-narrative to what our students see outside our walls each and every day.  Don't Be Good, Be Great at Douglass!  #FD4L, Frederick Douglass for Life!
