    "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 ."

    "Douglass is a great school because of their leader Mr. Saunders and the great work and vision that he has. The school has an IB Middle years program as well as several academies. They have a program called the Lunch Bunch which is a group of students that strive for excellence in community service. They also have a preschool child development program where students work in day cares and elementary school so they can provide guidance as well as enhance their leadership skills. Douglass is a place where I visit on my personal time to exercise on the track and it is a school that is welcoming as well as a staple in the Upper Marlboro community."

    "FDHS is the first school in Prince Georges county Maryland to educate African American Students. There is a IB Middle Years Progam and the school is slated to offer an IB Diploma Program. Small school with approx 1100 students and 100 staff members. Highly successful athletic program and Arts program. Students with potential are identified early and encouraged to take honors and AP courses. Many of the staff hold advance degrees and certifications. There is an active and engaged PTSA that continues to wokr with parents to get them involved."
