Discovery Charter II Reviews

This is the best school ever my son used to hate school and now he cherishes every minute of it. Another thing is parents are allowed to be volunteers and see what the teachers are teaching so you don't feel left behind on what your child is learning. This school makes 50% of your child's personallity, it is very good on leadership skills, and I have noticed it has no bullies like there may be an incedent here and there but it isn't beating up hardcore bulling. It also gives your child freedom to learn whatever they want to know. The teachers are very open to what people want to learn and I want to give a shoutout to Ms. Mira and Ms. Eva for this. Finally it makes sure your child has a good attitude like they talk about being a good sport and the students are very friendly. So I dont see why this school is so bad and after all y son has been at this school since the first year of the school 2013.

As of this year, this school no longer has any music, science, PE, Spanish or team sports.
Many leaving parents have expressed that their children are testing 1-3 behind peers in public schools and not being admitted due to lack of academics in private schools. At least 1/4 teachers leave every year
The small group of administrators, staff and parent have a very strict control on all aspects of this school. The motto's are "Just ask for forgiveness, never for permission" and "this school isn't for everybody", and "you don't understand the philosophy"
You will also find massive gaps in knowledge the staff just says "kids develop at their own pace, don't worry"
