  • We are excited as we get closer to welcoming the current 8th and 9th grade students to Douglas High School next year! We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions that should help parents and students. Should you have any questions not addressed here, please don't hesitate to contact us.
  • School Attendance Requirements for Driver’s Licenses and/or Permits: Beginning January 1, 2015, Nevada State Law requires that anyone under the age of 18 who applies for an instruction permit, driver's license or driver authorization card must provide the DMV with proof that he or she meets the minimum school attendance requirements.   Please contact Kelly Benoit at 782-5136, extension 1760 or via email at kbenoit@dcsd.k12.nv.us 24 hours in advance of picking it up.    We will generate the form and have it available for you at the front office 24 hours after receiving your request if you are a student who meets the minimum requirement of 90% school attendance
  • Should your student need the required DMV form to receive his/her license or permit, please be aware that the main office at DHS will be closed from June 22- July 10. You may request this form in advance by contacting Kelly Benoit at kbenoit@dcsd.k12.nv.us prior to June 1, 2015.
  • Douglas County School District appreciates the feedback we receive from our parents.  Each year we offer the opportunity for parents to provide us with feedback on how we are doing with the various aspects of your child’s education and services we provide.  Results for each school will be provided to the site administrator in early June 2015.  If you are unable to access the survey using the link below (also available on the district website), or if you would prefer to complete the survey in paper and pencil format, we have those available in the main office.  The window will be open to complete this until Friday, May 15, 2015.

Principal's Message:


Welcome to the Douglas High School website.  The community of the Carson Valley is proud of our students and their accomplishments.  A major reason why Douglas High School is a great place is because we have exceptional students, parents, staff, and community members working together to provide meaningful educational opportunities.

We have a common vision of the future for each of our students that our school mission statement reflects:

“Douglas High School students will have opportunities to achieve their potential and to graduate as competent, life-long learners who continue to grow as productive citizens.”

Our staff and community want the best for our students, and we work hard to achieve our mission and to meet the dreams and goals of our students.

On our website you will find valuable information about the programs and opportunities we have at our school.  There is also a link to the Douglas County School District website if you would like to learn more about our school district.
