Douglas Community School, also known as Douglas Com, The Com or DCS, is an all-boys community school in Douglas, Cork, Ireland. It was founded as Coláiste Muire by the Presentation Brothers in 1926 as a juniorate[1] (i.e. for lower-cycle secondary students). In 1965 it became a full secondary school.[1] In 1974, it became one of the first "community schools" in Ireland, when it was transferred by the Presentation Brothers to a local board of management.[1] The Roman Catholic Bishop of Cork's representatives are trustees on the board of management.[1]

The school also hosts adult education evening classes.[2]
