The Douglass High School Creed

I believe in Douglass High School and the things for which it stands; Health in mind and body, service to others and to myself, social adjustment, economic security and reverence for the spiritual.

I believe in achievement and will continuously strive to accomplish what I set out to do.

I believe in loyalty to our school and its traditions.

I pledge upon my honor to help in all its undertakings; in all that makes it a stronger and nobler school.

And I promise to do all in my power to become a student to match its ideals.

"The Trojan Song"


We will forever love dear old Douglass,
For dear old Douglass we will be true.
For her in every way we will fight today.
We will fight, fight, fight, Hooray!

In battle strong see the Trojans marching.
For we will carry our banner to the sky.
For we all are Trojans marching on to battle,
For we are marching on to Victory.
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Cheer for dear old Douglass,
Cheer for her today.
Proud and gay are we,
March to Victory.
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Cheer for dear old Douglass,
Cheer for her today.
Marching on to Victory
in the the Trojan Way!
Rah! Rah!

KIPP OKC finances, data belie ‘credibility of its promises’

By John Thompson - June 18, 2016 There are two big questions in regard to the KIPP plan for taking over the Martin Luther King Elementary School building. I’ve focused on the first issue of whether it would be possible for KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) to provide high-quality pre-kindergarten and elementary education for an entire neighborhood. Since Oklahoma City’s KIPP has never attempted such a task, the organization should have been willing to answer some basic inquiries…See More
