Discovery is a wonderful school that focuses on the "whole" child not just teaches them to read and write.
Differentiative learning, everyone is accepted as an individual in a non-judgemental environment , you come to school to learn and volunteer and you also hang out with real friends, my kids love to get up in the morning and go to school!
Great parents involved in their kids education make Discovery a very vibrant caring generous community. Excellent developmental methods of teaching delivered by energetic young teachers. My kids love learning, going to school and making life long friends here.
Discovery Charter School has an incredible sense of community, parents are involved in each and every step of the learning process! It's teachers have a passion for teaching AND learning! It's hands-on approach to learning helps to integrate all learning styles and interests. This school helped prepare my son for the challenges of high school so much so that he is now and Honor student and I know that would not have been possible without Discovery and the commitment of teachers and parents involved in our school.
Discovery Charter School embraces every student. All are equal and the community spirit is amazing, not to mention the teachers and curriculum are just what my two children thrive under and love!
Parent involvement, hands-on learning, caring, dedicated staff, individualized instruction
I am the parent of a kindergartener and as the year is winding down, I have been so pleased and happy to have my child at DCS. I can see a great difference in my child socially and academically from last fall until now. I love how everything is hands-on. I find myself hanging out in the classrooms on my non work-day because I love the kids and my child's teacher. It's so nice to see parents everywhere...it gives the kids (and parents) a great 'comfort' factor.
A great way to be a part of a community. You get to know not only your kids friends, but their parents and siblings.
The developmental hands-on approach at DCS is incredible. The children get to work in small groups at their level, so every child can grow. Those who are struggling get more help, and those that excel in a subject can be challenged. My child loves going to school... that says a lot.
Hands-on learning, out-of-the-box thinking, great joy of learning, wonderful community.
Discovery Charter is a great school because they have a cohesive team of teachers, parents, and administration working together for the common goal of the CHILDREN.
I love Discovery Charter School as it treats every child as an individual and tailors the learning experience for him or her. My son has been so happy to be in a non-judgmental environment, where he is accepted on his own merit and given the recognition that he is eligible for.
This is an excellent school. The teachers and parents work very well together. The Principal is AWESOME!
This community helps everyone who enters the school. Everyone is willing to do what they need to do in order have a learning environment for all the kids and parents, whatever the need. My older kids didn't have this kind of school growing up and it has done wonders for my son. Great school.
I love the philosophy of this school & their motto that everyone belongs. The kids take ownership of their unique learning style as well as help others along the way. I believe the teachers are fantastic! My child grew leaps and bounds in just one year with a caring, uplifting & understanding teacher. This school is a collective effort of teachers, staff and parents who put all they can into an outstanding learning environment for these children. I can't say enough about this school, and I wouldn't put my kids anywhere else!
Parents and teachers/staff work together for the benefit of the kids. My special needs daughter is thriving in this environment and has made great progress academically, physically, and socially. Teachers are open to ideas/suggestions from parents and because we work together, we are able to offer many wonderful programs that other schools don't have (gardening, cooking, PE, hands-on science, field trips, etc.); all of these 'extras' are tied into lessons so it's a great way for kids to learn.
This is a safe, clean environment for kids. Lots of support. Staff and families create a wonderful sense of community. Quality education, great programs, lots of extras.
My son is in Kindergarten this year. He studied in Stratford for Preschool and Pre K. We did a lot of research before sending him to DCS. This is a great parent participation school, very hands on kind of education. I love the field trips which are based on what they learn. It is a very good developmental school and kids enjoy going to school everyday. They learn quite a lot and I am very much pleased with the entire system.
