John J. Doran Community School

Doran Advisory Program

Our goal of the advisory program is to ensure that at least one adult in the school is getting to know each student well, making sure their learning needs are met, and encouraging them to make good academic choices and plan for their future.

Through our advisories we will help to foster stronger teacher-student relationships and create a stronger sense of community and belonging in our students.



Team Doran Dolphins

As some of you may know we have two SMILES mentoring programs in our school, and a third one will be up and running in a few weeks!  MILES for SMILES is an annual event that helps raise funds for the SMILES program.  If you are interested in walking or running in the 5K on the Doran team please contact Karen Lima.  The event will be held at Umass Dartmouth on March 22nd.  We have also set up a donation page if you'd like to donate click the link above.  Please consider contributing to help support this mentoring program!
Thank you!!
