Not a good school. This is my child's second year here and the quality of teachers is terrible! Both years there have been teachers who quit with no warning , leaving the kids to adjust to another new teacher. When I've been volunteering at the school, there are always kids out in the hallway screaming and having problems. It's ridiculous and disruptive!
Every child has the opportunity to learn here. My children are excelling in this academic environment. The principal is amazing and in the second year of the school new artistic programs are starting. Warning: the homework is overkill!
Prior to this school my daughter was in a private school, the private school was very good; Discovery Prep is superior. My kinder son is reading, writing sentences, adding, subtracting and knows 100 sight words. This is a boy who we originally thought was not even ready for kinder due to his late November birthday. The innovative hybrid personalized teaching method is amazing. My second grade daughter is developing critical thinking skills and writing short essays. The majority of families are there because they want their children to succeed and attend college. The energetic principal is passionate and only hires the best & the brightest. My son s kindergarten teachers went to Yale and Stanford! No teacher s union red tape mumbo jumbo, this is a charter school, just passionate well paid top notch teachers that help aspire their student to excel to their fullest God given potential. Yes, the daily homework is massive. Yes, you must do 40 parent volunteer hours per child. Yes, the school is in a very bad neighborhood; however, if you are looking for a free top notch superior education for your child or children don t rule this school out. I encourage you to do a site visit.
