This is the second year my children are attending Doral. I can't express how amazing the faculty and staff are at the school. I feel like we won the lottery. They are not under the stress they were in public school. They are actually exceeding here. I love that they have Theatre, Violin, Dance, Spanish and Media in Elementary school. They actually love going to school everyday.
The parents and students are good as you can get, but the administration is absolutely horrible. Everything is rushed with all notice coming at the very last minute. School picture packets sent out two days before pictures so you have little to no opportunity to get your children cleaned up for pictures. Any fees for projects are always dumped on you at the last minute. My children knew they had band all summer and I kept asking about instruments, but was only told there was a lab fee for the class. Today, the first day, received a notice that I needed to either buy or rent instruments by this Friday. Also the school seems to be more about being nice than actual learning. Missing assignments are just not taken serious and it's all about testing so they don't lose funding. I was very excited about the charter school system and just can't wait to get them out of this school. I really wish i would have chosen Coral over Doral. My oldest son had never missed turning in an assignment ever until this school and it is just no big deal to these teachers. That is until they start to cram for the standardized tests which their funding is based upon. This principal is horrible.
This is one of the best schools I've ever been to. Doral really changed my life.
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.
My daughter is in 7th grade. This is an excellent school with an emphasis on the arts. My daughter is very happy here. Wonderful staff and administration!
I am so grateful that my children were able to attend Doral. In my option it is the best school in Clark County, Nevada
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!
