I cannot say enough about this school. The teachers are excellent and always willing to go above and beyond to help our their students. They are top notch! The principal, Mrs. Conrad is amazing. She always makes you feel welcome no matter what the circumstance. The children love her! The Buffalo School system is always being attacked , but there are diamonds in the rough and Discovery is one of them. I am very proud that my daughter attends school in Buffalo at Discovery and look forward to many happy years here.

My one son started attending this school last year. The teachers that he had were great and went above and beyond the call of duty. I have another child that attends a different public school and to see the degree of difference is a disappointment. I wish that both of my children could attend Discovery school. If not one of the best it is the best public school in the city of Buffalo.

Discovery is a wonderful school, it's the best choice I ever made for my child. The teachers go above and beyond the call of duty. The principal is right on top of things and should be commended for the job she does. The district should take pride in Discovery school because it's top notch.

this school is great and i think the parent who wrote other wise must have a child in trouble. The principle is fair and won't take any garbage that is the way it should be...I had a child at a catholic school that could have used our principle for one day to straighten things out. Parents need to get with the program and pay more attention to thier kids school work and lives

Discovery School has and continues to make great strides as others remain stagnant or take steps backwards. I have never nor have I heard of any problems with the principle. I believe the 2 comments concerning this are from one unhappy, and dare I say unreasonable parent. The education your child receives is top notch. When my son transferred from Catholic school, it took him 2 years to catch up, but now he is on the honor roll. Discovery now has a track team & basketball team. They also have a baseball and hockey team in the works. A+++

The school is great but the principal does have a real problem in the way she deals with parents.

I am astounded to hear about the last comment. As a parent of children at Discovery School #67 I have never had a negative experience in all my years involved with the school. The staff is always supportive and professional. The test scores are among the highest in the city. From what I understand, the waiting list is a mile long- you are fortunate to have the opportunity to send your children there.

This school is terrible. From day one we had problems with the teacher & principal. They were unwilling to work with us. Teachers for pre-K are the worst. Also, I was disgusted at the way the principal treated the parents. Do your kids a favor & don't send them there. Check into charter schools... they are well worth it!
