We love Doral Academy. My son went to another Charter school in town for 3 years and it was such a stressful environment . Doral is such a breath of fresh air. I see my son making so many positive strides forward not only academically but socially. We look forward to moving to the Cactus campus in the fall. We will miss Ms. Phillips but Ms. Marshall is awesome so I know my son is in great hands.

Doral Academy is beyond amazing. Everything from the admin, staff, and the building. You couldn't ask for more! It surpasses my expectations!

Our son attended a highly ranked public school for K-2 before we learned about Doral and enrolled him there. While we thought he was getting a good education at his prior school, it is NOTHING compared to Doral! This school just has such a loving, accepting atmosphere that encourages creativity. The specials include all the arts that have been removed from most public school, and more. The model of having PreK-middle school in one building is another thing we love. The middle school kids interact with the younger children, and the vibe feels more accepting and kind than the public middle schools I've seen. Everyone from the involved and caring principals to the highly qualified and loving teachers are sincerely dedicated to the children's success, both academically and socially. I cried when my son got into Doral, and am thankful every day that he is attending this wonderful school!

We have three children at Doral Academy. Pre-K, 3rd, 4th. The arts integration learning environment keeps every child so dedicated to their learning. Spanish, dance, theatre, art, media productions, violin, music, basketball, the list of activities they offer there students is unbelievable. The staff is top notch. Blessed to be at Doral.

We have two children attending this wonderful school and could not be any happier We made the move to take them out of public. This first year at Doral Academy has been such a success with the incredible Staff who work the longest hours I ever witnessed at a school and to the parent volunteers who endlessly give their time for their child's education.

Love Doral Academy! My son is a 6th grader and he is so happy at Doral. It is a new charter school with such a positive atmosphere! All the teachers are excellent, and the school has such a positive vibe. My son attended another charter school the past 4 years, and the climate there was so much different and getting worse. So glad to be at Doral now!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
