The name of the school honors the North Dade Medical Foundation's financial contribution for the construction of the school building and for the educational program. The school’s identity is academic excellence and its logo symbolizes learning and study. The words that appear in our logo are Perceptum, “to learn” and Affero, “to contribute”. They represent the essence of the school where learning is the main focus and where our graduates are academically well-prepared, responsible citizens. The symbol of the Caduceus signifies our ties with and the continued support from the medical community that sponsors Doctors Charter School.
