- a
Amazing school! Principals, office staff, and teachers are always very supportive and work hard for the safety and education of all students.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
Students will be bullied and verbally abused by others and teachers/principals wont do nothing. I'm not sure how they got a rating of 9...should be a rating of "0". This is NOT a safe environment for any kids.


Supports LD students: Disagree


- a
This is the WRONG place if you have children with "special needs". They will bullied and verbally abused by others and teachers/principlas wont do nothing. I'm not sure how they got a rating of 9...should be a rating of "0".

Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
They need a new principal who engages the school. There is no leadership nor any kind of developing after school activities for kids. Principal's mom is the music teacher since she fired the one guy who did something extra for the school.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Bullying is the mentality in here. Do I need to say more. No respect for teachers nor peers.


Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
Some very few are good. Most of the good ones have moved on to Double Peak.

Amount of homework: Strongly disagree


- a
No homework policy is LAZY policy. Teachers just passed their time, get a paycheck and get some goodies from students. Yet do no WORK.



- a
Stay away from this school. The new principal does not what she is doing and most of the teachers have moved on to Double Peak (new school). Most of the teachers left are just a peons and yes ma'am to the Principal. They are not good and have not ANY good activities as can be seen by the chaos in this school. Kids are running amok without supervision and bullying is very imminent since Teachers/principlas dont want to get involved in these disputes. This is a terrible school and a shame for San Marcos.

Love the new Principal! Ms. Geldar is extremely honest and straight forward with parents, (my personal opinion is that Discovery really needed this sort of change) she is excellent with the kids and genuinely cares for each one of the students at Discovery. In the 2 short years she has been Principal, I think she has really made an effort to get to know the students. The teachers we've had have all been outstanding as well, and go WAY above and beyond for their students!

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Principal just tried to implement No Homework policy. She then changed to minimum daily reading. She doesn't seem to know what she is doing.
