Doctors Charter School is a good school. The academics and safety are it’s greatest strengths in my opinion. I wish there were a wider variety of classes such as having a different language class besides Spanish. One main problem I have is the lack of resources the school has . We don’t have locker rooms to change for P.E, an auditorium or a gymnasium, a proper track , a proper sports field, etc. Overall, the size of the whole campus is very restricting and doesn’t allow for many resources that many other high schools have . Also, the uniform code is too strict, in my opinion. If we were a private school, I would understand but since we’re a public school I wish the code was more flexible . The staff control everything down to the colors of your headband and that just feels restricting having every little thing about even your accessories controlled. The majority of the teachers are amazing and really care about each student and try to help you out as best as they can.

Overall, this would be an excellent school for a middle school child but students should be taken out once their middle school career is complete. It is a horrible atmosphere, administration is stuck in the past ways of doing things, and the administration and most teachers do not connect with students in any way.
I would recommend for you to bring your child for middle school but take them out for high school. As it is NOT a good high school experience at all. There is a huge lack of college classes (when this is supposed to be a "college prepratory school"), lack of extracurricular activities and clubs, lack of sports, and lack of electives. There are plenty of good teachers but also very bad ones that don't know how to do their jobs, and were clearly hired because this school has no money. Regarding the lack of money at this school... the food at this school is barely edible, our bathrooms are extremely unhygenic and the students are forced to change in there as well, there was also a moment when they didn't give the teachers copy paper... and even more events because of lack of money. The administration is one of the main causes of the downfall of this school and I do believe that the school can get better and improve with a change of leaders.
