I feel that this school has raised many well educated, amazing people. It is a fairly small school so the student body is very close-knit. I just wish that there were more clubs, classes, and programs that helped students express themselves and ease students into adult life. For example, a work-study program so that seniors that have completed the majority of their credits have the opportunity to leave school early to go to work instead of taking unnecessary electives.

DCS is a good school. It needs much more affordable activities, including field trips and dances. These activities, mostly the dances - such as prom or homecoming- need to be more organized and fun for the students. It is obvious that Doctors Charter is somewhat of a low - budget type of school, but fundraisers would really help with these things. But, the field trips are very extravagant. Even though they are offered once a year, you will get the opportunity to travel to places like France, Italy, Switzerland, Dubai, and alots of other places. These trips may be costly, but it is worth it. Also, the teachers are very great and it is an overall good school - especially for preparing for college.
I liked some of the teachers because you kept them throughout the years, but during my time at the school, education and academics were poor and scattered. I did not gain valuable, practical knowledge. Many teachers were biased, and the student body of my graduating class had no class spirit. The overall student body past the class of 2018, from my personal experience, have no respect for others or themselves. They only want to impress others and fit in instead of embracing individuality. The rules at the school are too strict for expressing individuality. There is a lack of AP and Dual Enrollment classes, as well as engaging clubs. Students need more drive, support, and motivation to run clubs instead of wanting a title.
