    "The teachers are amazing! The food is not that bad either. And we are a high related "A" school. The 1 problem is the principal is not very social, I pass her in the hallways sometimes and say "hi" sometimes or most of the time she does not respond and keeps her head down to avoid any conversations"

    "Discovery Middle School has been an amazing blessing to us! Our daughter came from a strict Christian Private school. We were concerned about her ability to adjust to a public school setting. However, we have had no issues whatsoever! We enrolled her in all Advanced classes. She has adjusted well socially and academically. The teachers, principal, counselor, and dean have gone above and beyond to help her feel welcomed and appreciated. We were surprised to see how advanced the Math is at this school compared to private schools! The children have been welcoming and simply superb! Other parents, whom we've met, seem equally happy. There is absolutely nothing that we would change about this school. As for the previous comment stating the school needs a younger principal; we completely disagree. The current principal has a doctorate degree and has incredible knowledge and experience. It is not by accident that we are an "A" school. Parents cannot expect to be volunteering as much as they did in Elementary school. It's time to cut the umbilical cord and trust others to teach and motivate your children in a school setting!"

    "As with any school, this school has it's up's and down's. The teaching staff is great for the most part but the school overall lacks spirit and true leadership. The principal is anti-parent and does not engage with the students or parents whatsoever creating a very cold environment for both - including it's volunteers. Coming from Waterford Elementary where the principal prided himself on knowing every student's name, and at a mkinimum acknowledged them as he passed them in the hallway if he didn't stop and engage in a conversation with them, Discovery's administration could use a swift kick in the rear end when it comes to leadership. This school is long overdue for a leadership change and could use a young and inspiring leader at the top."

    "This school has been a blessing to our family! The teachers and students are amazing. Bullying is not tolerated here, although we have not had an issue with that anyways. It helps to be in the advanced / honors classes. We are surprised to see bad reviews from parents here. It might be a personal issue or lack of parental involvement. After all, parents must collaborate with the school for success to be achieved. We cannot expect the teachers to raise or cater to our children. The curriculum is challenging; therefore, being organized is a must!"
