I do like this school.. but I would change some things. The school lunch is HORRIBLE. Some teachers are lazy Uniform is way too strict Extremely Crowded- should kick out some kids I'm in the 8th grade, I've been here since 6th and the school isn't bad, it's just those few things that aren't so great. In general, it isn't bad and I would recommend the school. I hardly see + i've never been a victim of bullying, but if you do come across bullying or teachers being really rude or what not- I highly suggest seeing the counselors.

This school is horrible. They rarely have parent involvement, they have no professionalism anywhere, and the staff is rude and mean. HORRIBLE SCHOOL! The only reason im giving it 2 stars is because its clean.

don't like the fact that middle school is mixed with high school students, they don't have any classes together but they do pass each other in the hallways and high schoolers can be mean to the little ones specially the 6th graders as such was my son's experience.

The quality of the academic programs in the honors programs is excellent.. The level of parent involvement, as in most middle schools, is not as prevalent as in the elementary level. Yet, there is a strong pta that assists with the shortfalls. The office's staff are amazing, extremely cooperated. I definitely reccomend this school for all incoming middle students.

I looovvveee this school. I have been attending it for my 3 years of middle school and I've got to say, the piano and music programs are the reason I'm staying for high school. Plenty of variety in electives and performing arts choices. I will be sad to graduate from the middle school this year.

I put my son and daughter in the 2010-2011 school year and they were failing compared to other middle school they left and the elementary school they went to! I highly don't recommend this school to any parents!!! The middle schoolers are combined with the high schoolers which is even worse! I reported the school for drug use in the school and it hasn't been solved yet but I immedietly withdrawed them from doral academy and put them in a new school and now they r back on track with good grades!!!

My daughter attended this school on 2009-2010. Based on my personal experience I do not recommend it to anybody. I put an straight A, President's Award student in their hands and nothing else happened. I had to withdraw her for lack of challenge. All comments apply to 2009-2010, I do not have references for current year.

As parents who go out of their way to send their kids to a better school to improve their scholastic experience I have nothing but good things to say about Doral Academy. I have two teenage sons and the EXCELLENT Doral staff does a wonderful job at weeding negative elements out. Their academic curriculum is to my satisfaction and their test scores can attest to this. I don t like the online teaching system called Carnegie. I actually really like the fact that my kids can have some learning time at home besides their time at school and the system itself is good. However, their online teacher was sometimes far ahead of their actual teachers. They were doing homework on work they haven t been taught yet. What I did find to be troubling were, in my opinion, over-inflated fees associated with extra-curricular activities.

I have attended this school for the past three years, and it has been a great experience. There is a good amount of regulation: students don't get away with everything, but they're not babied either. Despite the fact that some of the teachers don't have great qualifications, don't judge a book by it's cover. A lot of these teachers are great instructors, excellent at keeping the students interested in the material, and working toward higher degrees. The school does lack a variety of good extracurricular activities however, and they have problems with the maintenance of the restrooms (which is primarily the student's faults).

Doral Academy offers doble enrollment courses to those students that have outstanding scores and want to take clases that gives credits to college, also the advance classes are a good chance to those that want to learn. My daugther is in middle school going to high school this year and I can say I am thankfull with DACMS. This is a great Charter School.

As I have tried to express previously, this school is not all what it seems. Lack of organization and administration that doesn't even have a speck of interest in their students. Things are extremely costly in this school - fees for everything! Most teachers are inexperienced, and newbies. Hardly any electives. Library has roughly 200 books. Look elsewhere, my mom and I were once fooled by the lie of Doral Academy.

My name is Mariana Rodriguez and I have attended Doral Academy since Kindergarden. I am currently in 8th grade and I'm proud to say this school has indeed helped me mold myself into the young woman I am today. The school does have it's faults, just like any school but it indeed has a lot of advantages. The honors, gifted, and advanced programs are great! They really do push you to strive for your best and nothing less. The amount of students is an eye-opener but I guess it adds to a great enviorment, (a total of about 900 students) I can say that not all of the student body gets along great but they rarely have any issues in that matter. They do have a uniform policy and they excpect you to abide by those rules. Teachers are mostly average but there are a couple of teachers that really top

If you are thinking of attending this school I advise against it. This school barely has any selection for extra-curricular activities and/or elective classes. This school is way too strict with the uniform policy. This school spends too much time making rediculos rules where they should be focusing on improving the school overall. The teachers and staff arent the best around and give alot of work but dont teach that much.

It is true that they are very strict but I think is needed . I agree that the curriculum is not challanging and that they had (last year) a lot of problems with teachers attendance. This problem affected the students peformance last year.We are hoping for a better year . Recomendation :The principle should supervise the classrooms more often to identify any problems before is too late. Fcat scores in math last year were terrible due to poorly stablished Math depart.

That it from one of the actual students, I attended this middle school and i recommend no other. Doral Middle school is an awesome experience for all students because they have many options available. I loved the staff they really pushed me to my limits and got the best of me in result. I have been to all three Doral Academy Elementary Middle and High and the Middle school is the best not only of all three but of all Miami Dade. Don't believe me check it out for your self at least drive by. Trust me its worth every ting in the world to get an education from Doral Academy Middle School.

They are disorganized, don't call back when you leave a message, needs to secure building better, and has to have more activities. They need to have a different variety of sports for the children and get a better field so that the children won't get filthy from the dirt.

This is my daughter's second year at Doral Academy Charter Middle School. It has been an incredible experience for her and for me. From the staff to the administration - very 'open door' policy and as a parent I truly appreciate that. The discipline is consistent and there is structure - much needed for middle school.

Excellent school. Many say not enough clubs or too much money but hey it's a school of choice you don't have to be there if you do not like it. Anyway every year all they do is improve which is great! For a new school I'm hoping doral academy goes far. It probably will.

Doral Acadamey Charter School has provided an academic program for our son that has motivated him. Having only known the Catholic academic programs in Dade county, We feel that at Doral our son is receiving a excellent education. The After Care program has provided extraordinary reliability and human interest. Our son feels that he is not only a number in the school. From the principal to the counselor and down to the security guards he is known by his first name which provides a very respectful atmostphere. He is a shy person and this school has made him feel welcomed. We love to be involve in everything that concerns our children, perhaps more parents should take time to participate. Talking things out will make it better primarely for our children and the educator will know what is expected of them. Thank you DACMS and all associated with it. God Bless you all.

This school is overpopulated for it being so small. There are many students with poor grades which does harm to students who have excellent grades. Many parents tend to only get involved in buying materials that the teachers need when the time comes(this is mandatory). Other than that you could say there is hardly any parent involvement. Most importantly there are not enough clubs, there are only the bible club, cheerleading, and National Junior Honor Society.

Doral Academy is an excellent charter school. It is a school of choice therefore the children that are there is because the parents want them there. The administration is doing an excellent job in creating a good learning environment. It is still a very new school and of course there are issues still to work out. However, it is growing and improving every day. The lunch is no different from any other public/private school. Overall, it is doing great.

Do not think that because the school is 'a' is good. This is the worst school in Dade county. The first incident was that the kids attended for 3 months to a theater. The teachers are the worst because the 'explained' to the student in 15 minutes about a subject but then kids are not allowed to asked to the teachers because they are to busy on the internet or on the cell phone. The teachers for Math and Science are the most unprofessional because they they told the parents that they are not a babysitter and kids are responsible for the work eventhought they do not provided the work . If you want to child repeat the grade Doral Academy is the school. Overall the teachers and staff are the most unproffesional and incompetent.
