Principal’s Message

August 17, 2022

Dear David Douglas Families,

I trust you are enjoying your summer with loved ones and finding quality time to relax before the upcoming school year. I hope this message finds you eager to return. I want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the 2022-23 school year. This week, David Douglas High School staff will complete the final summer activities with students before closing the 2021-22 school year. Our dedicated support staff has been hard at work preparing a productive learning environment for our students.

At David Douglas High School, our educators continue to design engaging and challenging learning experiences for ALL students. In today’s world of drastic changes, our staff understands the crucial role of maintaining positive relationships with our students, families, and community members. Our goal is to create a safe, secure and respectable learning environment, so students can learn at the highest level, while also providing the necessary educational resources for students’ post-secondary destinations. This task requires resilience as we continue to rebound from the setback of the pandemic. Recognizing the positive correlations between relationships and a high-quality learning environment has prompted us to implement changes to benefit all students. 

Students will hear more about relationships throughout the coming school year. Our staff will intentionally build rapport with our students and stay firm with our mission, “A place where connections are made.” As educators, our professional responsibilities include preparing students to be self-sufficient and to fulfill their ultimate dreams. As always, we are committed to joining with parents to collectively collaborate and develop your student’s most efficient learning process.

David Douglas High School will continue identifying and removing barriers and promoting equitable education access for students and their families. Our goal is to meet the individual needs of each student, both academically and socially. Our success will rely on genuine buy-in from our families, and I encourage you to contribute to your student’s educational journey. I look forward to our partnership as we work together to achieve an optimal learning environment at David Douglas High School.
