Thornton Construction recently completed a new two-story school that will house Kindergarten through 5th grade students, ultimately accepting students up to 8th grade, and serves as a prototype for other Miami-Dade County Public School facilities. The new Doral K-8 school was built on a green site and features 37 classrooms, multiple offices, media center, music, arts, language, and discovery labs, and a dining/multi-purpose area. The scope of work also included two basketball/volleyball courts, two playfields, a PE shelter, and a total of 62-parking spaces.
In August 2017, this new school opened its doors as the Dr. Toni Bilbao Preparatory Academy, and welcomed its new students for the 2017-2018 school year.
