    "Our daughter attended Discovery Middle during her 7th and 8th grade. She had come from a strict, Christian private school; therefore, we were nervous about introducing her to a public school setting. These concerns quickly vanished due to the caring and support she received from teachers and students. Discovery has an amazing staff of administrators, teachers, and ancillary help, who work closely with the children to ensure success. Education and safety are priorities. The school is in need of some technology upgrades, especially since the other local middle schools have received these upgrades. Out of the many pros that this school offers, my only other con would be the fact that students do not use the school lockers. We have received two answers as to why this is the case: safety, and tardiness to next classes. To us, neither of these answers make sense. There should be a process and a plan in place to address this. However, our daughter has not complained about this. These days, most of the homework is completed online, so books stay in the classroom. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience. We look forward to our son attending this great school."

    "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"

    "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!"
