Discovery Elementary School 3

I just want to address some confusion written in the previous review. The person insinuated that test scores show that over 50% are not able to read. In reality the only grade that had a reading rate below 50% is in 3rd grade. That rating is not an indication that those below that rating are unable to read, it is an indication that those below that rating did not make a proficient score in the annual assessment. This may sound like a small or petty difference, but it is actually an important difference. One speaks of having an inability to read, the other addresses not being proficient in a reading assessment. Proficient means competent or skilled. Not merely able or capable.

I have pulled my child from this school and now homeschool. My daughter was extremely unhappy. I just wanted to say if you have the ability to look at the school scores THEY speak for themselves. This is a BELOW AVERAGE school... BELOW 50% able to read?.. Read these reviews for they are all correct in speaking. No one is out to get anyone but we are out to get the best education possible. I know I can teach better than she got it there.

My daughter attends Discovery this will be her third year. The first year was first grade she went there I was very happy with the teachers, staff and communication was great. Last year in second grade it was all different and not very happy teachers and staff would not get back in touch when left messages. Starting third grade on Monday we will see how it goes if not it looks like homeschool is the best option. No one listens when you address a problem and I have issues with it being a parent who is involved with their childs education.

I am not a fan of this school at all. There is bullying and nothing done about it. My daughter has a teacher this year that has made her hate school (1st grade).

Bullying, Bullying, Bullying and a pretty Landscape is this school is great for.. Teachers are awful except for the exception of Mrs. Almeyda.. If you like your child bullied and the teacher nor principal do anything about it than by all means send your child here..

My daughter is attending Discovery Elementary for her first year of kindergarten. The school is very un organized sending different times of dismissal times, rescheduled testing days without notifying myself, lack of staff knowing what is going on, seemed very scary to leave my child there from the lack of knowledge from the staff. Bacially figure everything out yourself or you will get 10 different ancwers from the staff.

My child has excelled at Discovey since Kindergarten. On FCATS he has scored 4's and 5's. I have nothing but good to say!

This school is falling apart ever since Principle McCalla left. As a former student I'm ashamed to see what has happened to this school and how bad they now teach my younger sibling now at Discovery. Parents, DO NOT enroll your child in this school as nothing good will come from it. Bottom line 1 star because I can't give none at all

There are plenty of great charter schools with bus transportation. Do your kids a favor and apply elsewhere! This school was my kids worst nightmare. Absolutely not a good learning environment! The staff seems nice, school looks pretty, but don't be fooled! Do not subject your children to this school you will surely regret it. I know I did!

My kids loved it there because they thought it was much easier than the school they go to now. One was there from K-2 & my other was there K-1. I liked it until my kids started their new school and we found they were behind & struggling academically. I think the school should focus more on academics than earning their "beautiful landscape" award (or whatever it's called). Switching schools was the result of being rezoned and I feel like it was a blessing! Sad part is, my 4th grader still only got a 3 on FCAT Writes. Bottom line, all Discovers really has going for it is that it looks good.
