    "This school is very unsanitary; It almost ruined my livelihood and made me not want to learn anything. I am so glad I left. There is no reason why there should roaches and rats in a place where students are supposed to learn. It's just repulsive and irresponsible. If there isn't any funding or any other logical reason why this school is so deplorable, then they need to just tear down the entire building. The teachers and staff aren't that great either. 0/10."

    "As a former teacher at FDHS, I have experience the undermining alliances with the teachers and administrators, there are too many cliques. Douglass is a good school, however, it would be MUCH better with BETTER teachers and administrators (esp the principle and his flunckies). They ALL need to be fired or transferred, even the office staff."

    "Frederick Douglass High School is one of 4 high schools in the 9th District of Prince Georges County School System. There are approximately 1100 students with 100 or so teachers, administrators and staff. The majority of the students live in the community so many of the students and families have known each other for years. The educators have advanced degrees and several years of experience. There are award winning sports programs, child development program, culinary arts, a very active student government, national honors society, Art clubs and so much more. The parents are engaged and organized and support their students goals of becoming career or college ready. The PGCPS is a large school system with some financial challenges and Frederick Douglass High School is looking for ways to work around those issues."

    "A lot of good things are happening at Douglass high school. The administration, teachers and PTA are working together to highlight this to the community. Douglass high school's sports programs are top notch, students also have opportunities to achieve academically with rigorous AP courses. Douglass is in the process of becoming an IB diploma school. Also, students have multiple opportunities to travel abroad with the Japanese exchange program and spring break travel abroad trip. Many dedicated teachers provide tutoring after school, and many have open door policies so that all students can attend. My daughter has been actively engaged in the school since the ninth grade. We have had some challenges, as is the case with any school, but I find the students to be well behaved and the teachers are hard working and caring."

    "As of now I attend Frederick Douglass High School,C/O 2014. I started going to Douglass in 11th grade and within a year I felt like I made a mistake by choosing this school . If It wasn't for school zones i could've left the terrible learning environment , unsanitary bathrooms , and flying roaches behind . As a whole the school has one amazing teacher , Lauri Lyles . She Is extremely intelligent & she gets the job done . She teaches 12 grade english ; you would think it's a college level class . Her classroom and work is always organized with each student attentive and ready to learn something new . However, i can not say the same about my other classes . some classrooms are completely destroyed by students from previous years & the blinds in one of my classes look like they came out of the garbage . In addition , a lot of schools have cosmetology classes but Douglass doesn't. Seeing as though we don't have these opportunities the school system is STILL trying to take out computer graphics , business , & even child development ! I wouldn't be surprised if Art was taken too . Overall Douglass has ALOT of problems that need to be fixed & i would not recommend attending this school ."
