Doby Elementary dropped from a 'B' grade to a 'C' grade between 2018 and 2019. They also lost a large number of quality teachers over the summer and I see they now have a posting for a new AP. As a parent of a Doby child I'm very concerned for how the school year is evolving and hope significant improvements are made throughout the year. Otherwise I recommend parents take advantage of school choice early for alternatives (Apollo Beach elementary is rated a 'B').
I was exciting that he was starting a new school, I was happy for him. So far things are horrible.
My son has ADHD, Learning disability and speech disability. He was in a charter school in Kindergarten and 1sr grade and nobody wanted to help my son even they had an order for his doctor. They did not have the source to do it. I transferred him to Essrig Elementary and all teacher were complaining all the time about him instead of looking the way to help. They were calling almost everyday and his primary teacher asked for moved him to another class. I transferred him again to Doby Elementary; I have never received any call from them to put a complaint, they called somtimes to tell me wonderful things about him and they also told me that I was doing a awesome job!! He had 4 different teachers who helped him to succeed and now he knows to write and read! HisLas evaluation for the learning disability exceed the average grade for kids without disabilities and now his self-esteem is great!!! I really love so much Doby and is the best school I could find. I know God is with me all the time helping and He helped to find whis awesome school which really care about their students!!! Thank you so much Doby!!!!
This is a terrible school, My daughter hates it here,she is a good kid and always gets green,but the teacher she has clearly does not care about the well being of the student, however,the reading teacher is great, that's the only positive thing I can say about the school. The gym teacher is a bully, I was appauled to see that he slammed the gate in her face,while other kids were watching,terrible example .
