Principal's Welcome

Greetings and WELCOME to Douglas High School!

Welcome to Douglas High School! It is an exciting time to be a part of our school and community! 


It is our commitment to:


Prepare All Students to Meet the Challenges of an

Ever-Changing World.


Approximately 750 students make up our 9-12 school.  We are fortunate to serve the students of Ellsworth Air Force Base, Box Elder, and the surrounding community.  Douglas High School students go on to pursue careers in the military, enter professional preparation through technical schools, enroll in state and national universities, and contribute their skills to a changing workforce. 


This will be my first year in our building. I am honored to be selected as your principal. I expect to see all of our school community treat others with dignity and respect. You can expect to see this modeled by our staff and upperclassmen. This will teach the Patriot way to all of our students. Our staff will focus our efforts on providing a meaningful educational experience for all students. Our collaboration will be centered around student learning and achievement.


We invite you to explore all things Patriot here at our website.  Please contact me or any of the DHS staff for help, questions, or to hear more about our school and community. I am excited to learn more about our school community and get to know our students!
