Hello Scotsmen family and friends,
Our PSAT day and Senior Day went really well yesterday! Our students never cease to amaze me on how well they do. Our seniors got some well needed information and show of support from our staff. All students should be well on their way to a successful year. Let’s keep it up Scots!!!
Best Wishes, Principal John Bier

Daimler- Education in Motion Grant
David Douglas High School was recently awarded a $7,000 grant from Daimler Trucks North America. This is the second consecutive year that Daimler has generously awarded our school a grant. This year’s funds will be used to purchase equipment for our new Robotics class. This course has a strong STEM emphasis and will increase our students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math.
In addition to the grant, Daimler employees Gregory Cooper and Morris Henry have been great supporters of David Douglas High School; they have participated for Mock Interviews, volunteered to be guest speakers in class and have been integral in the growth of career-technical education.
