High Schools of Douglas County

Douglas County High School in Castle Rock started in 1897, and graduated its first class in 1899. Parker High School was accredited in 1936 and closed in 1958, consolidating with Douglas County. The yearbooks for these two schools are brought together here. Add more of your memories of the Douglas County Schools! The beginning of this community combines the collections of The Denver Public Library, Douglas County High School and the Douglas County History Research Center at the Philip S. Miller Library in Castle Rock to bring together all the Douglas County High School and Parker Community High School yearbooks in one location.
