Douglas Byrd High – Snapshot (English)
Douglas Byrd High – Snapshot (Spanish)

Named after F.D. Byrd, late superintendent of the Cumberland County Schools, Douglas Byrd High School is centrally located in an established neighborhood near Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Our staff of both young and veteran teachers (some with 30+ years in the classroom) is culturally diverse with and comes from a variety of experiences.

Douglas Byrd High School is an example of a comprehensive high school that is being reformed to meet the needs of all students, and to offer special relationships to encourage students to remain in school. Byrd is the recipient of state and federal grants, which fund unique programs such as our Freshman Academy (using Talent Development High School Model from Johns Hopkins University), the 21st Century After School Program, and our Great Expectations Lab.  Programs such as these help teachers build relationships with students through relevant and rigorous academic classes. Students thrive in the smaller learning communities within a large high school. As a recipient of the Small Learning Communities grant, an additional counselor and a clerk for the Freshman Academy were funded.  The Freshman Academy office has a separate phone number and is available for parents for meetings, conferences, and general information.

Other unique choices include:

  • The Finance Academy – Offering specialized courses in finance, summer internships, and other enrichment activities
  • The Ford Partnership for Advanced Studies (Ford PAS), sponsored by the Ford Motor Company – A rigorous, application-based program designed to introduce high school students to the concepts and skills they will need to succeed in the world of work
  • Teacher Cadet Academy – Preparing students for a career in education
  • JROTC – Preparing students for careers in the military
  • The Media/Technology/Communications Academy – Offering Programming and Broadcasting, and Cultural Arts classes
