if your child has major disabilities or just slight disabilities this school is great. Small classes great staff and helps children prepare for whatever they want to do when they graduate.
What a excellent school. My son who went to Saul Agriculture school had lots of problem with the help of an attorney he was transferred to Douglas. I wished I knew about this school from the start. Everything he needed he got and as a parent everything I needed I got. The principal was very devoted to the students as well as the staff. I never seen my son so excited to go to school. He graduated in 2003 attended Community College for 1year and has been working for Dietz & Watson for the last 4 years. Everytime I speak with someone who child in having difficulty learning I always recommend Douglas.
I think this school a graet place for a child with disabilities to go because their not easly distracted plus the classooms are not crowded and this child can easily learn and the communication with the teachers parent makes a big diffrence in the childern lifes as well as our own. I'm glad this school is the #1 in my book. A concerned parent. PS all teachers and staff keep up the good work. My children went here and is doing very well thanks to S.A. Douglas.
