Worst middle school. The rules are ridiculous! If my child were to be beaten up, and my child tried to fight back, or even just block themselves, they'd be suspended. They give 'turning the other cheek' a whole new meaning! The principal isn't exactly mean, but he doesn't do anything. The assistant principal is a nightmare. My all A student had to text her father, just once, and she didn't want to go to the office, as the office workers have the largest attitudes imaginable (other than one, but they're not the one you talk to to get into the office). But anyway, the assistant principal suspended her, because rules are rules. I respect that it was a rule, but the way he conducted the suspension, like all other suspensions, was mean-spirited. The assistant principal also punishes everyone for one kid's mistake. As for the teachers, they are the reason I gave the school a 2 rather than a 1! Some may be harsh, but the majority are very nice. My child has learned more with the nicer teachers than with the strict ones. All in all, when my kid leaves discovery will be a very very good day. You're probably better off with Pioneer or Canton Charter.
