    "Excellent school with excellent teachers. My kids just started at Discovery and our doing awesome. We love how involved the PTC is to continue raising money for the school. Ms. Youngblood and Mrs. Mosey are excellent teachers. We just hope and pray that we can continue to have the kids go to this school."

    "I was told this school was great. I am not very impressed. My son was sick in class and I never received a phone call so I had no idea. He suffered the whole day because he said the teacher said he was fine since he did not have a fever. Make a long story short, my son went to the ER and was throwing up for the next 2 days. Not too long after that we received a school email showing an overall attendance record and on the bottom the principal wrote "we can do better than that" I was more than annoyed! Talk about bad timing."

    "Teachers should keep things more confidential when it comes to parent teacher meetings. VERY unprofessional! It has gotten quite uncomfortable to see my child's teacher and the parent of the child I complained about each day. Kids are beating each other up on the grassy area in front of the school while waiting for their parent's while staff stands around watching. I have to be there an hour early just to get decent parking to pick up my child. My child constantly comes home thirsty and hungry and when I ask why, my child says because the teacher told me to throw away my food so we can hurry up and play. SERIOUSLY!!!! I don't care about my child playing if my kid is hungry! Parent's who personally become friends with the staff also receive way better treatment. It's sad. I saw a parent get excused for parking in the area for pre-school pick ups and drop offs only because she was friends with one of the workers. She parked there and said she will only be a few minutes. Her "FRIEND" told her don't worry about it, I will just say I know you and you're picking up a preschool child. That ladys kid is 8! I look white, but I am Mexican and understand Spanish! Shame on them!"

    "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."
