Our two kids have had great experiences at Discovery. The teachers, counselor, and administrators are all top notch in my opinion. For the largest elementary school in South Dakota, it is impressive how well they run the school. Not sure why another reviewer thinks that the principal is nasty. That's their experience and opinion but now mine.
I do think that this school is above average on all fronts. The atmosphere is positive and warm. The teachers that we have had so far have all been good teachers in different ways. The best was Mrs. Folsum in 2nd grade though. Discovery is in a bit of an upper-class neighborhood. We are not rich by any means, and so far, my son has never had any issues with being treated differently by the staff or the children who are from wealthy families.
The principal and the teachers in this school have been so helpful and communicative. We feel really lucky we are in this district. We also love the ULE program. I think my daughter will be sad to leave for middle school next year.
My daughter is in 3rd grade. We were so privileged to have an exceptional teacher for 3rd grade. All her teacher were very nice(K & 2nd grade also). This schools is surrounded by a group of wonderful teachers & staff. It's truly a wonderful school with a great principal.
