Our District

David Douglas School District No. 40 is located in East Portland. While entirely within the city of Portland boundaries, David Douglas is a separate school district from Portland Public Schools.

David Douglas School District covers 12 square miles of family homes, apartments, shopping centers and small businesses. It serves a community population of approximately 53,775. The David Douglas School District was formed in 1959 from three elementary districts — Gilbert, Powellhurst and Russellville — and the David Douglas Union High School District. The District now includes nine elementary schools for grades kindergarten through 5, three middle schools for grades 6 through 8, one comprehensive high school for grades 9-12, and one alternative high school campus for grades 9-12. The David Douglas Aquatics Center and Howard Horner Performing Arts Center are located on the campus of David Douglas High School.
