If your child is a "favorite", then you are golden and will have no problems. The teachers have favorite students. The admininstration has favorite teachers too. What an unprofessional organizatiion this school is. I can hardly see where their Christiann values showhrough.

I agree with a review that was written by a parent regarding the headmaster and teachers on how they conspire and change against a parent if things aren't done the Doane way.Ive had the headmaster imply that he feels like I'm doing too much by providing my child with a home tutor and its stressing my ...  Read more

Doane Academy is a jewel. Located on the banks of the Delaware, it offers a robust academic environment supported by incredibly rich tradition.

At the very least, this school needs to stop claiming it is "College Preparatory". The SAT scores of 90% of students at this school are atrocious. Students get away with retaking tests simply to improve their grade. Favoritism is a huge problem in the teacher-student and administrative-teacher relationships. ...  Read more

This school is amazing! Challenging classes, normal homework load, probably higher than the local public school. Both of my sons attend the upper school and it is wonderful! Disregard the poor reviews, they are most likely from people who failed to make it here or were kicked out. The teachers and staff ...  Read more

I find it curious that my review was somehow taken off this site. I removed my daughter from Doane after seeing that she was behind. She was accepted to another school on the condition that she catch up. We spent the whole summer seeing tutors 4 days a week. I also tutored her so she would be ready. ...  Read more

The previous parent reviews must all have lower school children. I agree, the lower school is fantastic. Upper school is another matter. I dont know if the academics are poor because the kids are rarely in class, the teachers aren't certified or have a college background in the subject they are teaching, ...  Read more

The school started off great 8 years ago, but the constant turnover of teachers and leadership more concerned about appearance of the school rather than developing the education of the children has really downgraded the 'Value' of the school. Other area private schools that were behind Doane years ago ...  Read more

My child is currently enrolled at this school and has been for the last 11 years. He is an incredible student. He has been involved with the John Hopkins university program since he has been in 2nd grade. He was able to take ACT test in 7th grade and had scores that would enter him into colleges. ...  Read more
