The Doane Stuart School Reviews

Almost all of the teachers are amazing. They are very supportive and willing to help each student separately to be sure that everyone succeeds. I have gotten help outside of school from teachers on many occasions and it definitely improved my learning experience. Classes are usually small, especially as an upperclassman, meaning classes can become even more specialized to individual student needs and be more of a discussion than a lecture. Unfortunately, due to small student size, there is less diversity of students, and some more expensive resources such as shop class and some sports facilities are unavailable. Anyway TDSS is the best!

From the past four years at TDSS High School, I can confidently say that I feel prepared and ready for college and higher education. While there are many great parts of the school, such as the variable schedule or off-campus privileges, I believe that the best part of being a Warrior are the teachers. All of the teachers I've known care greatly about the school and their students. Most teachers will meet with students to help them before/after school and during their office hours. As a further testament to the teachers at this school, I and many others have gone back to past teachers for help in a new subject finding that our teachers are glad to help! While the academics can be challenging, the teachers are truly there to help students succeed and achieve their goals.
The Doane Stuart School is wonderful K-12 school which has a very diverse community. The teachers here are incredible, well qualified and very friendly to the students. The curriculum is well thought out and the faculty does an excellent job of working closely with each and every student. Every family who comes here feels very welcome in the Stuart community. The school prepares students exceptionally well for college. The school is one of the safest out there, excellent security. There are many clubs and activities for the students to get involved in. Academics are top notch and everyone who comes here haves fun while learning!
