    "My 8 and 9-year old grandsons are students at DSC, and they both feel it is the best school (of 4) they have ever attended. With that endorsement I am happy to rate this school with 5 stars! They seem to be thriving and learning."

    "Discovery is a STEM academy with every lesson having a science, technology, engineering, or math focus. The teachers are outstanding with a true hands on, sitting on the floor, writing on the desks (erasable) approach and using creative videos and funny voices on Edmodo to inspire the students! It works as the recent API score hit 900! and the school has been designated as a California Distinguished School. Staff collaboration and communication could be better. Parent involvement could also improve as it is a Charter School."

    "Smart, educated teachers, a principal who is involved and cares about the students. A full-time nurse on site. They have plays, fine arts, sports, and daily fitness."

    "Our family loved the Pre-school program! I the ratio is 10 students to 1 teacher! The whole year we were there we never were to capacity always about 20-22 kids (3-5 yr olds). Which meant that the ratio was smaller. They group the kids according to their abilities, how they will be chalenged. The kids have a great computer lab IN class, painting, coloring, craft area, puzzles, puppets, circle time, recess, snack time, math time, and much more."

    "Pre-k program has way too many kids in one group. 30 3-5yr.old's in one class!! Crazy!! The class is messy and unkept and the teacher's seem burned out or inexperienced."
