Douglas County Schools
Douglas High School
Schools in the Carson Valley are part of the Douglas County School District (DCSD). DCSD is committed to working in partnership with parents and the community, to ensure that all students are competent in the basic skill areas, demonstrate continuous achievement toward educational excellence, and reach their highest potential as productive, responsible citizens.
The communities within Gardnerville, Minden, Genoa, and South Lake Tahoe, are served by the Douglas Country School District. Nestled among the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the high desert sagebrush, our 7 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 3 high schools provide over 7,000 students with a high quality education based upon District Competency Objectives and Nevada Academic Performance Standards.
Douglas County School District has a Strategic Plan that is an educational plan for all students, parents, teachers, and staff. The plan’s strategies are listed in priority order. Even though each strategy is important for the district to accomplish its mission and goals, the first 4 strategies listed are given special emphasis with regard to available resources. The Competency Strategy that includes student academic performance as well as the systemâ€™s accountability is the first strategy.
