Message From the Principal
I’m honored and enthusiastic to start my 27th year at David Douglas High School. My time in education has revealed the importance of working alongside educators, students, families, and community partners to create a nurturing and engaging learning environment. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive educational experience where all students can achieve excellence, reach their post-secondary goals, and take responsibility for their lives. Our staff has been planning and attending professional development offerings to provide best practices for all David Douglas High School students.
We aim to maintain a strong relationship with students, families, and stakeholders to ensure that students are fully engaged and can take full advantage of David Douglas’s many resources. We remain committed to ensuring David Douglas provides a highly effective curriculum to every student. We can collaborate as a unit and make a profound difference in our children’s lives by working together. I will work to ensure that our students have access to the tools needed to be successful. We will continue to create solid and meaningful relationships aligning with our mission, “A place where connections are made.“
This year our staff will prioritize professional development time, analyzing data, and identifying effective strategies so instructors can adjust their pedagogy and address the needs of students. When we make these adjustments for students’ success, the school and our children will benefit. Creating relationships and establishing trust with students can enrich the educational process for the learner and teacher. With these strategies, students can develop fundamental skills, increase academic performance, and succeed throughout high school.
Finally, partnering with families and continuing to identify and remove barriers for students is essential. We want to collaborate with families. As always, I encourage you to stay connected with your student’s high school journey and help us collectively develop your student’s most efficient learning process. We will continue to focus on our student’s social and emotional needs together to achieve an optimal learning environment.
I look forward to meeting and working with you and your David Douglas High School student.
