I could not be happier sending my 9th grade son to Doane Stuart. He came in last year transferring from another College Prep school in the area. I cannot thank you enough for all of the positive differences you have made for my son. He enjoys going to school!! My son is so much more outgoing and confident because he feels so welcome and accepted going here. The education he is getting is preparing him for his best future. Thank you Doane Stuart!
