More than 80 Schools
We believe in school choice, which is why we encourage families to choose the best educational fit for their students from our amazing variety schools—including neighborhood, charter, alternative, and on-line options.
Real-World Experience & College Credit
The Douglas County School District offers many programs to not only get not only the skills, but also concurrent college credits, which can help set our students apart from the workforce, even before they get to university.
The Competitive Edge
Douglas County knows that learning often happens outside the classroom. That is why we encourage our students to participate in authentic learning experiences during the school day and afterwards.
21st Century Learning
While many school districts equate technology to 21st century learning, DCSD's focus is not on the tools--it's on the kids. Access to iPads and laptops are just one way our digital natives learn the critical thinking, collaboration, creativity and communicaiton skills they will need to succeed.
We embrace school choice by offering a wide variety of pathways to learning.
Our more than 80 schools include neighborhood, magnet, charter, online and home school options, as well as a diverse array of learning models like Artful Learning and International Baccalaureate.
