Kara received the highest score ever from a student from DCHS.

In April 1996, the Douglas County Board of Education gave its unanimous approval of instituting an International Baccalaureate program to be offered through Douglas County High School. The IB is open to all high school students within the District, with DCHS currently serving as a magnet for this program.

In July of 1998, DCHS was formally designated as a Diploma Program IB school. Incoming ninth and tenth graders qualify for the MYP IB program by enrolling in specific classes. The graduating class of 2000 saw Douglas County's first students receive IB diplomas. The 12 graduates were offered over half a million dollars of scholarships and awards. The 2008 graduates were offered over 5.5 million dollars of scholarships and awards.

As the oldest school in the District, there is a rich tradition of diversity and academic excellence at DCHS. Approximately 2,000 students may choose from among 285 courses in programs of study that reflect their abilities and aspirations.

DCHS fields team sports, performing arts, and debate and other clubs devoted to specialized interests. It is the goal of DCHS to develop the whole person in an environment of excellence, where individuality is recognized and encouraged. The addition of the IB program meets the needs of those highly motivated students and enhances the total programming at DCHS.
