This is a wonderful school. The staff and teachers are friendly, caring and supportive. There is a strong academic program. They offer an excellent band program in junior high. We feel very fortunate our children are able to attend this school. Doris Todd School is a true treasure on the island of Maui!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
