Douglas Park Elementary School has served the southeast part of Regina since 1956. The community is attractive with affordable, well-maintained housing in the immediate area of the school. Recent statistics show that younger families are moving into homes previously occupied by senior citizens. Currently, there are approximately 460 students enrolled at Douglas Park School, which draws students from the Gladmer Park, Arnheim Place, Assiniboia East and Dominion Heights subdivisions of the city.
Community support for student achievement, staff members, and programs has been an ongoing tradition at Douglas Park. Parents and community volunteers have played an active role to provide support for students and staff. The School Community Council is actively involved in the school.
