I am a parent of a child, who just started in Doctors Charter, although it has only been one week, I am extremely happy with what I have seen. The teachers are all enthusiastic and passionate about teaching. The new principal has a lot of plans for this school and its future. I am so very excited for me and my family to be part of this school. Please take a look at this school. It is a Gem!

As much as I use to love this school I must urge you to reconsider sending your child here at this time period. I have been involved in the PTSA for many years and I have had multiple children who have attended this school, but due to recent actions taken by an Interim Principle I am in pure disbelief. However, the teachers are simply phenomenal my little girl always talks about how much she learns in Science class. Also the school has a garden which gives the kids hands on biology experience which I think is something very few schools are able to offer.

The school's name is Doctor's Charters of Miami Dade, florida. And we are aware that my son is not the only kid that has been bullied at that school. The principal is not at the school because he doesn't even live in florida, and the active principal is the viceprincipal Douglas Garber, whom we told innumerable times about my son's problem. We consider ourselves lucky for the simple reason that our son is strong. I quote my son, "Mr. Garber thinks that kids sometimes are mean but it doesn't mean it is bullying, papi, i don't think he understand" and i agree. I think that until schools accept that they have a problem with bullying they will keep using denial as a solution.

A lot had changed since my last post. The school has attained the Florida Gold Seal of Excellence and it has been named on Newsweek's "America's Best High Schools in 2011". Homework load still heavy and the amount of projects for several teachers at the same time are still a lot. But the atmosphere in the school is excellent and students and parents work together with the administration to continue bringing the best for all. Administration is paying more attention to parent s concerns and tries to resolve issues where all parties benefit from the solution. The amount of school related activities continue high. Congratulations to DCS for an excellent work.

This school is great. It has a great staff, excellent administration and a very accommodating, knowledgeable and professional Principal-Mr. Meredith. We have our 2 children there since Jr HS and I believe that the education, guidance and preparation for college is SECOND to NONE when it comes to the MDCPS system. Kudos to DCS!!!!
