This school underwent receivership in 2016. The reason for the receivership was low test scores, the bottom 5% in the state. The school has until 2020 to bring the school from a 2 star school to a 4 star school, which has NEVER been done before in the history of Nevada. By their own projections, test scores will not have improved enough to meet the criteria by the 2020 deadline, but the school is hoping that their improvements (which have yet to be realized) will be enough to persuade the state to keep the school open.

The recent changes have driven away families in droves. Over 100 families have left and more are expected to leave as they get accepted into new schools in the fall. The funding for the school is based on last year's numbers so this year, funding will definitely be an issue. Several teachers were already laid off this year, due to budget cuts and funding issues stemming from a lack of students.
Haynal, Kettelsen and Nohara absolutely ruined this school. Discovery was once a really amazing school and they completely destroyed it with their ABSOLUTE POWER and CONTROL, money hungry, contradicting ways. If you see one their names at your school, just run! Trust me.
