This was a great school. I had 3 children that attended all 3 had issues that were not dealt with appropriately. One child had learning disabilities and the teacher didn't care to spend extra time with him or communicate with us on the needs and challenges he was having. My other child was being bullied and the faculty told us that he would be held in the office for his own safety instead of going to the problem children. The protectors also didn't care or intervene when these incidents occurred. The principal never even told us my son was being beat up, it was my other child who eventually told us what was happening. My oldest was being held in lower standards for reading because the teacher stated that she wasn't advanced enough even though she tested high in all exams. Since we moved our children to another school, my children are catching up and being assisted in their disabilities. New friends have been made without any bully issues. And my other child has accelerated in math, science, reading and honors because her teacher believes in her.
My daughter went to this school for 7 years and I now have another daughter in here. It is a very good school but now my 7th grader goes to Excelsior and she loves it. The teachers and facilities there also keep in close contact with the parents. Next year she will be able to take some college courses. I highly recommend Discovery and Excelsior.
First and foremost, this is one great school, my children have been going to this school for aprx. 5 years now, so my opinion is very imperative! The teachers are amazing and care so much for our children s education and health, there is great communication amongst staff and parents, cleanliness, and the principle cares so much for the students. I recommend this school, and now I hope I can find a middle/High similar to Discovery, any suggestions!
The Principal Mr. Hill knows how to do his job, he is always involved in the school activities; at students pick up areas; he answers right away when he is needed and he acted the same day when I contacted him about a bully situation. One of my sons graduated from there and I have two more going to this school. I feel good knowing that my kids are learning in a safe environment. Love it!
My daughter started Kindergarten here this year and already in just 5 weeks its amazing what she has learned all ready in this short amount of time. She is learning spanish, she can recite the pledge of alleigance, she is learning to read and sooo much more. I loves that they have the kinders go all day too. I love the safe and secure campus. The staff is very respectful and always looking out for you and your student! I have 2 other children and when its time they will also attend this school! I couldnt be more impressed by a school like I am with Discovery!!!
I love, love, this school, my eldest just graduated and I have 2 more attending, they all started here from kinder. I rave about this school to everyone I know. I so wish the school went at least through middle school. It is hard trying to locate a school that I feel will meet or live up to Discovery...
This school is the best of the best if any one that wants to go to this school must go there because the teachers are great with the students at this school so any one that wants to go there you must.
Great School, Great Teachers!!! My daughter has learned to read in kindergarden! Best decision I ever made when I enrolled her in the school. I am truly excited to see her progress next year and thru the 6th grade. I know the foundation she is getting at Discovery School will help to be what ever she wants to be later in life.
My daughter has been here at Discovery since 1st grade. If only I knew about this school early on, she should have been here since kindergarten. The principal and teachers are amazing. They are doing their best to make sure that kids get the best of education. Parents who want the best for their kids, this is the school, see it for yourself. I am sure my daughter will surely miss this school soon.
I'm a student at Discovery And I'm in 6th grade I have gone from the middle classrooms to The Highest in only 1 year! The Teachers are fun and I made so many friends through out my three years here. I'm really gonna miss this school next year D: I would suggest that ANY Student that wants to go to Discovery Should. We have so many fun activities here I think they even had a rubiks cuke class in 4th grade. Ok well anyway I hope you guys come to Discovery. ^_^
I graduated from this school in 2008 and i really loved it .I made many friends and every single student at DISCOVERY were every respectful to adults.The teachers were amazing they always made sure every student understood every lesson and even made it fun to learn. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!!!!!
I graduated from this school, and I absolutely LOVED it. I was there since kindergarten. The teachers are really good at their job, and they're really funny, too. They always help anybody who is struggling. The principal is always talking to the students on the playground and he makes sure there is no fights. He is always encouraging students to do their best. All the students are really nice and funny too, so anybody who is new to the school shouldn't worry because everybody's so friendly. This school is very focused on academics, but it's still really fun! I made some great memories here,and I feel so lucky to have attended this school. I recommend this school to anybody!
My family came from a rated 9 school in Monterey park, CA.. I got extremely lucky one day i was driving by and the sign said now accepting application, so i did not have to camp out. This school has exceeded any hopes i had. I have an autistic daughter in 2nd grade, and a son in kinder. My daughter has gone from a kinder level in every subject, to where she is suppose to be, in less than a year. I couldn't be more blessed to have these awesome teachers that understand my daughters disability and know exactly how to work with her, my son is already reading in kinder, i could not believe it at first, they push there students to excel in everything. I am so happy to have moved up here just because of how this school is changing the path of my children's educational path.
I just want to say that Mr. Hill rocks and that he is awsome for standing there on the rain and keeping our children safe. The school is awsome and all I have are good comments about it!!!
Discovery School of the Arts is a wonderful school, love the teachers love the staff....however Discovery REALLY needs to enforce the Volunteer Training Rules. Too many volunteers (namely the Parent Group) are violating the confidentially code with gossip and they are going to ruin it for the rest of us!
This school is so awesome! The principal is so nice, and the teachers are funny but they keep us on task. I wish this was a middle school and high school as well. I feel welcome there.
This school has great teachers. My daughter is very glad I transfer her from a different school. This school takes care of business which is teaching.
I must say this school is AWESOME! LoVe Mr. Hill ( you're doing a fab job), the teachers, and office staff! Our children our lucky to be a part of such a great school. Have to agree with the last parent...only downfall is we need to go thru 12th grade!
My daughter is in 6th grade now and has been attending Discovery since 1st grade. We also have twins who just started Kindergarten this year. We absolutely LOVE this school! The principal, teachers, and staff are awesome! I love that my kids are challenged academically every day. Kudos to the entire staff at Discovery!!! I highly recommend this school to any parent who inspire and encourage their child(ren) to excell academically and socially. The only downfall of this school...I wish it went up to 12th grade! :) Great job Discovery and THANK YOU!
I think this school is excellent!!! From administration to the teaching staff. They truly care for the well being of the children and most important education!!! My kids have learned so much from all the academics as well as the arts. I would truly recommend this school in a heart beat.
