Community spirit; developmental, multisensory, cooperative education; parent/teacher/administrative coolaboration
The parents and children know each others' names. There is a sense that you are empowered to help each other and help the community at large. From small-scale organic gardening, recycling our lunch containers, and building mason bee houses to help the local native bee population, we're doing our part to teach our children about living in the world. Even better, math, science, social studies, and reading are all incorporated into an interesting, hands-on curriculum which engages children and helps them to see the relevance of what they're learning.
At Discovery it's all about Living It, Learning It, Loving It. Education for every type of learner.
We love everything about Discovery and feel very lucky to be a part of such a wonderful school community.
What my family likes most is the sense of community, family involvement and that every child is looked at as an individual.
Discovery Charter School is unique compared to other schools. It is very inclusive and child friendly. One his first day at Discovery when he came home he immedietly said,' School was great! the teacher is cool, and I already made two friends!' At his old school, he usually says,'School was good.' Everyone at Discovery is like one big happy family
I love to see how far the students progress in the school year! I love the attitude of respect and cooperation that is taught.
Strong community, amazing and dedicated teachers, differentiated instruction to meet the varied needs of students, creative approaches to engage students and make learning fun.

The teachers are amazing, the curriculum is tailored to the child, and the kids are actually nice. The field trips and enrichments balance out the best school I've seen.
Discovery Charter School allows children to be part of a communitee. Caring and resposibility are key at the school.
My children are at a school where they are taught by the best teachers who make them feel like they can be anything & do anything. They are challenged & empowered every day.
Discovery is a great program with high quality teachers that strive to meet the needs of all students through integrated, hands-on, thematic units which encourage meaningful learning. The curriculum covers not only traditional subjects, but also provides experience through field trips and community service, which helps create students ready to become part of our larger world. The community is warm and caring and being in the classroom allows me to know what's going on in my son's academic life - a real gift when you have a middle school student. When I talk with parents of students in traditional middle schools, it is always clear that my family is very lucky to be a part of the Discovery community!
Discovery creates a great environment for students to learn and grow.
Dedicated teachers, parents, students and wonderful community spirit!
Discovery Charter School lets kids learn the way that works best for them. There's a warm feeling in my heart when I hear my 2nd grader explain what he learned that day with excitement and enthusiasm. Perhaps the best part of the school is the teachers. I've never seen such a dedicated group or professionals. They give more of themselves than they could ever be compensated for and it shows in fascination their students have for learning. I'm happy to be part of the Discovery community where each parent, child and educator plays a part to make the school great.
DCS is a small school where teachers and parents works together to help our kids. It provides lots of hands on experience and working together as group.
It is a very caring and nurturing school. The staff really strive to get to know each child and their abilities and then work to make them successful!
