What I liked about Discovery High School was the sports because I really loved playing volleyball since freshman year of high school and the teachers that adored me and loved me since I was always doing good in their classes and trying my best during their lessons. My teachers would always want me to succeed in school and focus on what to study on in the future and has really helped me out with assignments that I struggled with. This school has really changed my life and I will forever will miss my teachers and students and will for as long as I will be a titan. Go titans! Legacy Class of 2019!

Discovery High school is a beautiful school. I started as a freshman, new to the district. At first, I was nervous I would not fit in, or not have any friends. However, people are welcoming and friendly. The teachers are opening, honest, and caring. This was especially in the theatre department. I found a family in the theatre department. Another thing I love about Discovery is diversity. You never feel like an outsider because there is someone who always looks like you. Lastly, the facility is absolutely amazing. It's a brand new school so everything is up to date. It's truly stunning right when you walk in there is an open layout. Giving you plenty of room to walk the halls comfortably. The open layout makes it less likely for you to get lost in the hallways as well. Only thing I would like to see a change in is less strictness when it comes to things like eating in the library or what you can do with your lunchtime in general.
I have been in Discovery High School since sophomore year, I came here all the way from Venezuela in January, 2018. I've always thought that high school is just like the movies, where you get things easily, people is nice everywhere except for some folks that at the end of the year end up loving you. No, high school is shocking and it hits you to see what's real life like. Teachers can be mean, but they always give their best to teach ; students can fight, say things that hurt or simply be mean but they also can turn into your best friends for life. And college, high school drives you to your next step in life called college, it gives you the tools, the opportunities, takes you to places and helps you to build yourself as a athlete, student and person. So I would say, the experience has been impressive but I have love every step and fall, because it helped mentally and determined to what I wanted to do with my life.
