I attended the Doane Stuart School for my high school and absolutely loved my experience. The classes are challenging in the best way and each student has access to an amazing support network of teachers, faculty, administrators, counselors, peer tutors and more. The connections I made at the Doane Stuart will stay with me throughout the rest of my life and I am extremely proud to be a Stuart alum. I would highly recommend Doane Stuart to any student looking for an unforgettable high school experience that prepares you for college and beyond!
The Doane Stuart is without a doubt one of the most academically rigorous and intellectually vibrant K-12 schools in this state. When I enrolled here in my first year, I realized that the teachers here are knowledgeable and genuinely engaged, and my peers were on average far more motivated and intellectually curious than any of those I have ever seen. The school has served me great in my four years’ time and I am very grateful!
