Bullying really isn't an issue at Discovery due to the strong emphasis on character and "doing the right thing".

Supports LD students: Agree

Teachers have been very patient with my son. They are almost always available after hours by email for homework questions.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
Homework is done on laptops, useing a lot of Power Point presentations. I feel students have the appropriate amount of homework.

Our community is lucky to have such an awesome school. Teachers teach kids how to think, not what to think. My son has done fantastic his four years there. And Mr. Robinson is commited to the students and improving our education system. You simply cannot go wrong with Discovery.

Fantastic school with wonderful teachers and administration. Couldn't ask for a better school for my son!!

A lot of weird stuff happens here and not every student is treated the same. Some of the policies are weird and outrageous. The principal isn't productive and just walks around with his phone all day. Some of the teachers don't care about a student's grade in their class. Some teachers do a good job teaching and some teachers don't teach at all. We don't learn anything here because all we get is worksheets and middle school projects to do. The school needs to be remodeled and there are some holes in the floor. The school is supposed to be "Norms Only," but there are way too many rules as well. Some of the teachers discriminate against some of the students and make unacceptable jokes about them. It is sad when students learn more from one student than they do from the teacher. The serving portions of the food aren't enough to fill students up. The school hold intelligent people back and lacks a lot of AP classes. The school doesn't have sports, so i don't know why the school claims that it does. The school is an example as to why we rank 38th as a state in education.

Everyone has to learn the same way, no matter what their weaknesses are. Some teachers expect too much out of students and some don't expect enough.
