I LOVE Doctors Inlet! We came from Duval and it is night and day. He came from a "D" school in Duval and had to run catch up to an "A" school. His teachers and the school were amazing with their support to do what ever it took to help him. That was last year....this year he is doing very well. No school is perfect. Having parents involved is key to your child and the school. I have been on the other side of the fence...I love Doc inlet:)
The school needs a fence for better protection for the teachers, students and the staff.
Our 6th grader had a horrible time at this school. She was bullied so much and we complained to the principal, teachers and guidance counselors. Nothing was ever done about it, she would cry everyday when she came home. They supposedly have a no tolerance policy for bullying, however it is never enforced.
it's a fairly good school. although the teacher's and principal should be harder on the bullies. The teacher's need to spend more individual time with each child, and explain the material more thouroughly
so far with our son he's had wonderful kindergarden and 1st grade teachers
I think doctors inlet has gotten better this year about working with parents. The school has also extended the parent pick up area making it a safe place for the children to wait.
Although it is early in the year to speak of the quality of academic programs, availability of music, are, sports and other extracurricular activities, I can tell you about the level of parent involvement. The school at Doctors Inlet heightens the availability of parent participation. Volunteers will be awarded a special breakfast at the school on September 8th at 8:00 am. This will give the parents an opportunity to meet other parents who are actively involved. What a wonderful way to incorporate recognition and a show of respect and gratitude. I look forward for more opportunities at my son's school. Joshua Wearvers mom!
Mr. Curtis is one of the most dediated teachers that I've ever known. I had him when I was in school and my child just loved when she was there and I'm hoping for my son to have him in the near furture. Thank you Mr. Curtis. Mrs. Stackhouse is another great teacher she always has time to let me know how my son is doing in her class. Thank you.
This is a brand new school and I believe it will end up being one of the best, if not the best school in Miami Dade County! The teachers and administration are excited, the curriculum is college prep and parental participation is mandadtory. This school is the best thing that has happened in North Dade County in more than 40 years! Cudos to Ms. Maggie Manrara, Executive Director, and the citizens of Miami Shores Village!
My children attended Doctors Inlet and it was a great experience for all three. The teachers were dedicated and really encourage parent participation. The community around the school is very family oriented. I would not hesitate to place my children back if I ever returned to the Middleburg area.
Doctors Inlet Elementary's Principal and staff are fantastic educators. What the school lacks in funding they make up in sheer motivation by its teachers and staff!
The school is in need of new classrooms for grades 2 - 6. The outbuilding used as classrooms are showing age and trying to function in one of these must be difficult for the children. Other schools in the are much better. ie: Lake Asbury Childrend should receive the same consideration for classrooms regardless of the area.
I would like to say there is one teacher there that is wonderful, and her name is Ms Helm I would love for that woman to follow my child around throughout my childs school years...she is a remarkable person...They need to go through and pick out the weeds and it would be perfect....Other than this, the school is nice and clean, they are adding new buildings, its looking really good.
Area for improvement: security I believe that the school is too open to public. For example, the gates are open all time. Anyone can go into the school, park the car inside and go to the classroom. I have seen signs but signs are for people that follow instructions and for people that care. There are people that don't care. I believe that the gate should be close during class time. Recommendation: Place electronic gates for pedestrians and cars. In order to get into the school, out of scheduled time, people must ask the office by intercome. Operate the gate from the office. This way, at least, they can say security is good too.
