Doral Charter Elementary School

Doral, FL

Miami Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS) embarked on a tri-party collaboration with the City of Doral and the Doral Development Company to build and manage a PK-5 charter elementary school for the Downtown Doral District.  The Developer agreed to deliver the 3.42-acre urban site to the District vacant and ready to build. The exterior architectural characteristic of the building is compatible with City of Doral design guidelines and is in harmony with the surrounding community. The educational curriculum at the compact, two-story elementary school includes a language magnet program. During the program validation phase, Zyscovich updated the intended facilities list established for the proposed 840 student station elementary charter school with educational enrichment areas for 21st century learning while remaining in full compliance with the prescribed PK-5 elementary curriculum. 

The school comprises four Pre-kindergarten classrooms, seven kindergarten classrooms, 21 primary classrooms housing grades 1-3, 10 intermediate classrooms housing grades 4-5, a covered outdoor dining, physical education and art patio, an administration office suite, a cafetorium, a kitchen and other ancillary areas. In addition, the school is equipped with wonderment and enrichment areas at the DaVinci, Language, Art and Music Labs to complement the curriculum. The school site amenities include a service drive, playfield, tot lot, parent drop-off, and staff and visitor parking with landscaped areas. The project’s scope and program, along with the successful collaboration amongst all the various stakeholders, provides 21st century learning for students while delivering a highly cost-efficient facility.
