World Class Schools

Welcome to the Douglas County School District

DCSD is home to 89 amazing schools. With so many great options, offering an array of school types (neighborhood, charter, alternative and online) and educational programs (International Baccalaureate, Artful Learning, STEM, Core Knowledge, etc.) we know that we have a learning community that will meet the needs of each and every learner.

Find a school that matches your child's needs and interests

Regardless of which school you choose, we are committed to supporting the following at every building:

  • Striving for educational excellence
  • Ensuring our schools offer the educational opportunities parents dream of for their kids.
  • Building a positive culture and climate

Finally, we have refocused our efforts ensuring that we are supporting each child's journey from kindergarten to graduation. Our leaders are assigned regional areas, so that they are able to support principals along that pathway from elementary to high school.
