My son just started DCS and loves it. He is constantly engaged, which is what it's really about.
Discovery Charter School is a parent participation school in which teachers, parents, and students work together to provide a rich learning environment. The teachers at DCS enhance student learning by differentiating the curriculum so that students who are ready can move ahead without leaving other students behind. Learning takes place not only in the classroom setting but also through many field trips during the year. These field trips allow students to apply what they've learned in the classroom to their larger community as a whole. My daughter is excited about going to school every day. DCS allows her to express what she's learned in a variety of ways. DCS's developmental approach to learning promotes meaningful learning and we could not be happier to be a part of this community!
Great teachers, great kids, and parent participation all make for an effective and strong learning environment.
Parent envolment is apreciated. Kids are respectful and kind to each other.
I have 4 children there now. The amount of attention paid to the students is amazing and no one gets left behind. I have everything from the almost perfect student to the kid struggling to get it done. The communication at this school is the key. I have seen a 180 in attitude with my kids who didn't like to be at school. Now, for all of my kids, there is no place they would rather be!!! Being able to be a part of the kids learning and knowing my wife is helping out there almost every day. It's spectaculat!!!
provide ability to sign up for after school activities that keep them interested in school and the staff diplay the interest and ability to deal with sprecal needs children
I love the amount of parent participation (albeit some of it required). I love that it is developmentally based vs. academically based yet still scores great on standardized test. I like how they put the child first.
Discovery Charter School is one of those rare places that really does treat each child as individuals and helps cater the learning environment to helping ensure that every child thrives. Hands on learning, mandatory weekly classroom participation by parents, field trips and smaller classes enables DCS to do this.
Kids develop a love of learning by being able to learn at their own pace. Also, the field trips!
Safe, respectful and accepting community for my middle schooler, excellent for building self esteem and learning!
Unbelievable sense of community, small classes, dedicated teachers, diverse culturally, diverse learners, the students are 'known', nurtured, and leave with a knowledge of themselves as learners, knowing they have been supported and stretched to 'discover' academically as well as socially and emotionally.
This school is a community. Everyone is envolved. Small class size is a bonus. The education is steller.
At Discovery Charter school, a K-8 school, through parent partcipation (2hrs/wk/child), our children have the opportunity to explore a variety of avenues of learning that are not available in standard schools.
Great parent participation school - striving to make sure every child learns
Monthly workshops on how parents and school can serve their children best, developmental school, hands-on, daily enrichments offered after school, constant focus on service learning, and individualized education for each child!
My friends daughter goes to this school and she is always speaking highly of the school and how good the staff is.
I'm new to the school but so excited that I found a place where they emphasize teaching students to THINK instead of teaching them what to think.
Great teacher and parents involvement help keep the children and their learning a top priority.
Wonderful developmental programs with parent participation. My kids really love this school.
