I have helped many families moving to Omaha. Contact me if you have any questions about the Omaha area or need help buying a home.

Also referred to as DC West, Douglas County West Community Schools came about from the merger of Valley Public Schools and Waterloo Public Schools in the mid 2000s.

Douglas County West Community Schools is a relatively small school district with one elementary school and high school building in Valley, as well as one middle school building and a preschool in Waterloo.

In addition, the district operates an alternative high school program separate from the main high school.

This small school district sits in western Douglas County, outside of Omaha. DC West Elementary School is a past recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program.
