I am on the fence and looking for other reviews. My daughter has ADHD and they have not been as sympathetic as I would have liked. The principal rocks! She even sponged out a spilled fusion V-8 out of my daughter's backpack. Her advice during a meeting as well was impressive and on the money.

I'm going into 8th grade this year & I loved this school all the way through this year. It has some strict rules that no one agrees with that much & we have amazing teachers, & I sometimes I wish that discovery was like VSAA & was a 6-12 school! I love Discovery sooo much!

My son really likes Discovery Middle School. He has developed good friendships and chooses his friends wisely. He is surrounded by students from many ethnic and economic backgrounds which has been a good experience for him. The sports program is excellent and there are enough coaches for each student who wants to, to be on a team with no student cut. The after school programs are very good with many opportunities to choose from. The parent group is small, but active with regular monthly meetings. I am so impressed with the principal, she is very involved, caring and accessible. The band program is excellent with an outstanding director. We have had a very positive experience at Discovery.

I think that discovery is one of the best middle schools you could attend I love it here and am going here for my 3rd year. The teachers are totally understanding and do their job well. especially the math and algebra teachers.

Discovery Middle School is the best middle school that my daughter has ever attended. The teachers are exelent and very helpful if parents have any concerns. The kids are very well behaved and well educated. Discovery Middle School seems like one of the best schools in the USA if you like the idea of your child succeding and having a great time doing so, I would highly recomend Discovery Middle School. In conclusion it is an 'A+' school.

I am currently in the 6th grade going to Discovery Middle School. Discovery is perhaps one of the best things to every have happened to me! For one the teachers and staff are so intelligent and helpful if anyone ever needs it, and second all of the students that go here are very polite and well behaved! It is a very pleasent school expireience. As a matter of fact I thought I would never say this but I think that school should be longer! It is the most fun that I have ever had at school. All of my friends agree. This is a five star school! Thank you. Kymberlie
