    The only consistent thing this school provides is give detentions to the students. The students should fully understand when policies change from year to year.

    I can not imagine my children at any other school. All of them have made such positive changes.

    I'm a parent of two that both attend Frederick Douglass. My oldest son had many of problem in his last school and no one wanted to help me with him. Once I enrolled him into Douglass the staff and teachers was more then willing to help me with my son. With he help of the Douglass staff and teachers my son is now able to do his work his grades has improved and most importantly he is a better student. My youngest child will be starting kindergarten this year after being in there head-start program for 2 years. I would not change anything about Douglass right now. I can say this because I'm a parent involved fun-time. To all parent in order to know what is going on you need to stay close in tune with the school.

    Parents please listen carefully. I have 3 children that go to Fredrick Duoglass. This school has gotten out of control in the last year. They allow the kids to do whatever they want. Please watch out for your children if you sent them there. The teachers are afraid of the students.
